Lake Berryessa shimmers just east of the Napa Valley, a 45-minute drive through gorgeous countryside from Rutherford — and it's well worth the trip. One of the largest bodies of fresh water in California, it offers boating, water skiing, wake-boarding, tubing and other fast-paced water sports, plus quiet coves for kayaking, swimming and fishing. In the summer, the water can reach 75 degrees — the perfect cool-down after a hike or a stroll through sun-drenched vineyards. Pleasure Cove Marina offers boat launching, boat and jet ski rentals, houseboat rentals and boat gasoline, as well as camping options.
Boating and paddle sports. The lake has two marinas and three recreation areas with concessions and paddle sports such as kayaking, canoeing, and paddle-boarding are increasingly popular. You can hand-launch anywhere with legal access to the water, then explore the whole lake to find quiet coves and beautiful views.
Fishing. If angling’s your thing, you can fish for both cold- and warm-water species, including rainbow trout, bass, catfish, crappie, and bluegill.
Hiking and picnicking. Around the lake’s perimeter, there are at least six easy trails – from .1 mile to 2.6 miles – that invite you to explore, observe wildlife, and enjoy great views among the grassy hills dotted with oak and manzanita.
Camping. For information on specific sites and regulations, you should contact individual concession areas.
Swimming. Berryessa’s water reaches temperatures of up to 75 degrees in the summer, and there are beaches at the various concession areas. Note that there are no life-guarded areas at Lake Berryessa, so swim at your own risk.
Cycling. Bicycling is allowed in all of the day-use areas, and the roads surrounding the lake offer a variety of terrain and challenges. Note that the Smittle Creek Trail has bridges and stairs and was not designed with bicycles in mind.
Bird-watching. Eagles, hawks, songbirds, and wild turkeys are just a few of the species you can spot here.
