Lake Arrowhead State Park

Nestled on the edge of a 14,000-acre lake, with a nine-lane boat ramp and lighted fishing piers, this is the perfect place to drop a line and start reeling in the big ones.

Things to Do

The park offers fishing, lake swimming on an unsupervised beach, water skiing, disc golf, picnicking, camping, nature study, hiking, horseback riding and boating.

Equestrian

This site offers approximately 5 miles of multiuse trails on approximately 300 acres that are open to hikers as well as riders. The trails pass over grassy, flat terrain. Each of the four campsites has water, electricity, a picnic table, a fire ring, a tie rail and a picket line. Parking and restrooms are available near the group building. Restrooms with showers are located at the central campgrounds. Visitors must provide their own horses.
