French Meadows Reservoir

Popular activities on the reservoir include boating, canoeing, fishing and swimming.

Soak in the beautiful scenery of this lake while relaxing on the beach or hiking around the perimeter. Bring your family and spend the night in one of its many campgrounds and, in the crisp morning air, take the canoe out for a relaxing ride. With two day-use areas, the reservoir is also the perfect place to sit down and have a picnic or just spend the afternoon swimming.
