Barton Hill, Lake Berryessa Professional Review and Guide
"Lake Berryessa is a man-made reservoir on the rural and wild eastern side of Napa County. Prior to the inundation of the reservoir, Berryessa Valley was a productive agricultural region. Monticello, the main town in the valley, was abandoned in order to construct the reservoir. Monticello Dam, built in 1957, rises to a height of 304 feet and spans over a thousand feet across Devil’s Gate Canyon on Putah Creek at the southern end of the reservoir. The 26-mile-long lake covers 19,250 acres and is among the largest lakes in California."
