Clear Lake is the largest natural freshwater lake within California. It stretches over 68 square miles and has more than 100 miles of shoreline. The scenic lake sits in a broad basin surrounded by the coastal mountain ranges and is one of the oldest lakes in North America, dating back 2.5 million years. Clear Lake State Park, established in the 1940s, is located on the southwestern shore of the lake along Soda Bay. The 565-acre park sits at the northern base of prominent Mount Konocti, a 4,300-foot volcanic cone. The park is a refuge and nesting place for waterfowl, attracting over 150 bird species. Within the park are two miles of shoreline with boat ramps, docking facilities, a sandy beach for swimming, picnic sites, two creeks, and four developed campgrounds. A visitor center houses interpretive displays about the lake, geology, history, and wildlife of the area.
