State of California: Clear Lake State Park

Clear Lake State Park is on the shores of California’s largest freshwater lake. The area is popular for all kinds of water recreation, including swimming, fishing, boating, kayaking and water-skiing.

Anglers can catch large mouth bass, crappie, bluegill and channel catfish. The park is the nesting place for waterfowl.

Hikers enjoy the Indian Nature Trail, a self-guided trail that shows how the Pomo people, who lived in the area for centuries, utilized the area’s resources.

The park visitor center features displays about the area’s natural and cultural history.

The entrance to the park is 3.5 miles northeast of Kelseyville on Soda Bay Road, north of Calistoga in the wine country.
