Most of the trails in Clear Lake, which give visitors the opportunity to take in the verdant scenery and explore the area's Native American history, are easily completed by hikers of all fitness levels. Here are three fantastic hikes to discover when you book Clear Lake State Park cabins.
Situated near the entrance to the park, this pleasant 0.6-mile trail details how local plants were used by the Native American communities, both as food and medicinally. An informative map can be obtained from the visitor center.
This trail takes you along the edge of Cole Creek and the lake, with wonderful opportunities to spot a variety of wildlife, including otters, pond turtles, and numerous bird species.
The 2.48-mile Dorn Trail can be started and ended at several points if you want to shorten your hike. The trail, which highlights the remains of Indian communities, is peppered with a variety of wildflowers and interesting species of trees.
Clear Lake State Park cabins provide the perfect economical holiday for the entire family. In addition to hiking opportunities, young and old alike can take to the waters for an afternoon of boating or angling in one of America's premium bass fishing locations. The park also has a swimming area, so you can cool off in the Californian sunshine.
Several fishing organizations, including the Western Bass Club, have declared Clear Lake among the country's best spots for bass fishing. In addition to bass, bluegill, crappie, and catfish can be found in the park's waters.
The beach has a designated area for swimming that is open from dawn until dusk. There are showers, toilets, and picnic tables nearby. Dogs and glass bottles are not permitted in this area.
Day visitors to the park are permitted to use the boat launch, and those staying longer can use the marina upon registration – boats require the state's official documentation and sticker. Kayaks, canoes, and other small boats under 8 feet long do not require quagga mussel screening.
