Lakes in California
There are major lakes throughout California also not so major lakes and reservoirs so that almost any place a tourist stops will be within a few minutes of a nice body of water for swimming, boating, fishing, picnicking and maybe even camping. Most lakes are located on or at the foot of mountains and generally there are miles of hiking available as well. Campgrounds at or around these lakes can range from the rustic tent site with no hook-ups to a fully stocked cabin with a couple of bedrooms. The main thing is that the lakes in California can be used as a day activity or a destination for a relaxing stay in a natural setting.
