Where wine country meets redwood forests, among rolling hills and oak groves, you will find Lake Mendocino. The lake has something for everyone and is a dream come true for hikers, campers, water enthusiasts and nature lovers.
Miles of trails wind through the redwood trees around the lake. Rent a kayak and go paddling on the lake, go swimming, or try your hand at sailing or water-skiing. Fishing is fantastic from the shore or a boat. Striped bass, largemouth and smallmouth bass, bluegill and several varieties of catfish provide a challenge for fishermen. This serene and underutilized lake is a great place for a weekend getaway. There are over 300 campsites available and plenty of places to picnic too. Located two miles northeast of Ukiah off Hwy 101.
