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.
We went for a hike here while I was in the area visiting my daughter. We had a wonderful time and it is a beautiful lake. Looking forward to going again next year when I visit again......:O)
I drove to the lake in the morning, hoping to experience lake beauty. But, sadly it is so dry right now and it smells bad. California really needs rains. Let's pray.

Oh, if you get a chance head on over. It was so nice even though it was so hot. Gorgeous, great for skiing, fishing, hiking and camping. Lovely lake. i'll be back with my child :) I can't wait for her to see it.

Lake Mendocino is a big natural lake in the Mendocino county, it is nestled in the beautiful surroundings. Lake has three access points, two from Hwy 20 and one from the Hwy 101, in town of Ukiah. 2 of the access points have boat launch while one ( of Hwy 20) has campground. Did not see any boat rentals around... 更多
I lovely area for such a big puddle. There's a wonderful dam to hold back a huge lake, but alas with the drought, the lake is low, low, low. It's still cool and relaxing to sit on the shore feel the breeze coming through on a beautiful spring day and here on a weekday it is very, very, empty. The... 更多
