View of Clear Lake, California

Bird watching in Lake County

One of California’s hottest new wine destinations, Lake County is just two hours by car from the San Francisco Bay Area, Sacramento Valley, and Pacific Coast. Lake County is home to Clear Lake, the largest natural freshwater lake in California and one of the oldest lakes on the continent, and Mount Konocti, an ancient volcano that recently opened to offer one of the newest day hikes in the state. Visit Lake County to enjoy the state’s cleanest air, spectacular scenic beauty, and unsurpassed recreation — hiking, biking, wine tasting, paddling, fishing, birding, golfing, off-road adventures, and even rockhounding.
