We spent a weekend with friends at Kyen campground. Our spacious and well-shaded sites, #99-102 were in a beautiful lakefront location - a great view to wake up to in the morning! Besides the nice campsites we really enjoyed the lake, not too crowded even on the weekend. We had fun paddling around in a kayak, and the good fishing... 更多
Love the lake and a great place to spend the day, but camping... Not so much! Found it to be VERY noisy! It was more of a party camp and if that is what you are looking for, great. We found it too noisy and a lot of unsupervised children running through the camps late into the night. Now, this... 更多

Enjoyed my first visit to Lake Mendocino this afternoon walking the length of the dam and back. Watched Eagles soar overhead and ducks and geese lounging on her banks. Saw fish taking bait from the surface at a distance. The view was clear for miles and the sun warm with a slight breeze. Peaceful way to spend a couple hours.... 更多

Visited in November, very empty. Just visited again in June after a healthy rainy season, boats and swimmers and campers have returned! Even so, plenty of room to accommodate one more party in the day use area (actually, could've accommodated a few more), even mid-afternoon on a beautiful sunny Sunday (Father's Day, even!). We had a table right next to... 更多
Back to the basics, thank God for the rain. The Lake is full again, just in time for the spring and summer, lot of things to do picnicking boating swimming and a nice trail that goes all of the way around.
The lake is at historic low and almost looks like it did before the dam was build and highway 20 went through the coyote valley. Boating is limited until winter rains return. A visitor's viewing point is located at the dam and can be accessed on Lake Mendocino Drive off Highway 101.
