On the Water

Whether by engine, sail or good old-fashioned elbow grease, Lake County offers one of California’s premier boating experiences. Be it on Clear Lake, which is the largest freshwater lake in the state and also considered to be the oldest in North America, or any other of our lakes, rivers, and reservoirs, a floating good time is to be had.

It is important to note that all watercraft launched in Lake County MUST display a current Lake County mussel sticker as proof of screening. This is in addition to the State DMV sticker that is proof of the State’s mussel fee payment. Click here for more details.

Largest Freshwater Lake in California

Clear Lake presents visitors with over 43,000 square acres of water surface and plenty of public access points around its 100 miles of coastline. There’s plenty of space for power boats, strong breezes for sailors and over 50 miles of water trails for kayaking, paddle boarding and canoeing.
