Lake Nacimiento covers over 5,000 surface acres surrounded by 165 miles of scenic shoreline, unspoiled wilderness, mountains, river canyons, oak and pine forests, spring waterfalls and abundant wildlife. Skiers and wakeboarders love the morning and late afternoon glass. Clean, warm water, the long open ski areas and slalom course are fantastic. Home of the famous White Bass, there is no fishing experience quite like the one you'll have with Nacimiento's feisty fighters.
A year round general store and seasonal restaurant are located right at the water's edge. The full service Marina features 120 rental boat slips, available yearly, monthly, weekly or daily. A rental fleet that is quite likely the best in California offers everything from family pleasure boats, pontoon/patio boats, to ski and deck boats.
Lodge accommodations are available or for the hardy who want to experience the great outdoors, Lake Nacimiento has over three hundred and fifty campsites available.
