Take a Day Trip to Pyramid Lake in Bakersfield
Beautiful Pyramid Lake, located along Interstate 5 in the Angeles and Los Padres National Forests, is a reservoir formed by Pyramid Dam on Piru Creek, near Castaic, California. And it’s only about an hour away from Orange Grove RV Park, so load the family in the car and head out for a day of swimming, fishing, and boating.
Pyramid Lake Activities
Swimming at Vaquero Beach – Vaquero Beach, the most popular area on Pyramid Lake, is located just below the Vista del Lago Visitor Center. Enjoy the sandy beach, shaded picnic areas, restrooms and rentals of kayaks, paddle boards, and pedal boats.
Fishing – The regularly-stocked lake offers fishing at every location on Pyramid Lake. Commonly-caught fish are large-mouth and small-mouth bass, striped bass, trout, catfish, bluegill, and crappie. Some trout are trophy-sized!
Good news for wheelchair fisher-folks – The Emigrant Gap location is ADA accessible.
Boating – Spanish Point, Tin Cup, Bear Trap, Yellowbar, and Serrano offer unique beaches that are only accessible by boat. You’ll find courtesy docks and remarkable views of the lake at these locations.
Open year-round, Pyramid Lake allows water skiing on the main body of the lake. The canyons are reserved for canoes, rafts, and rowboats.
Join the thousands of park visitors who soak up the sun and fun every year in this scenic wonderland. Pyramid Lake will re-open on September 17, 2021. Learn more +
