Lake Skinner Park - Bakersfield, CA
The Lake Skinner Park sits at the foot of the Bachelor Mountain and sprawls over more than 7,000 acres. It is home to the iconic Lake Skinner, a shimmering water body set in the rolling hills of the Riverside County, California.
The park offers endless opportunities for outdoor recreation and fun. The 1,200-acre water reservoir in the center of the park is the popular home of various water sports and activities.
It’s also one of my favorite camping sites, with virtually endless camping options across a vast and diverse range of landscapes. If you are into camping, this park is the perfect place to have some awesome time. The park is home to around 200 camping sites complete with RV hook-ups and shower connections. Each campsite has facilities for RVs and tents. This makes it incredibly convenient to set up your camp anywhere across the park.
The park is home to various recreational activities such as splash pad, horseback riding, fishing and sailing. The park does have some strict rules – when you are boating, make sure there’s not body contact with the water. Also, the park doesn’t allow any campers to leave after 9 p.m. without notifying the park authorities. So be sure to check up on the park regulations before planning your trip here.
Rental boats from Rocky Mountain Recreation is always a god deal. and other gear are available within the park. If you like to fish, you may want to visit the park in the winter months when striped bass fishing is a popular activity. Through most of the rest of the year, you can still fish other varieties like trout and catfish. Winter is also a great time to reach out to us. Check out our home page
Apart from camping, water activities are really the highlight of the park. Lake Skinner is a 1,200 acre water reservoir and you can have a lot of fun in it. With a 12-mile shoreline, you have ample opportunities to camp right by the water or fish directly from the comfort of the bank.
The park has a small entry free and you may want to reserve a spot in advance before you arrive. If you plan on fishing, you will need a fishing license as well as a park fishing permit. So make sure you check out on the requirements and regulations before you head to this peaceful gem of a park. If Lake Skinner is too far outside of Temecula, Haverston Lake could be an easier option located much more centrally. Take look at what Haverston Has to offer.
