Pristine Lake San Antonio

Country Lake Estates is one mile from the entrance to Lake San Antonio North Shore. Click here for a picture of the vicinity of the estates.

There are two lakes in the Paso Robles Area -- Lake San Antonio and Lake Nacimiento. Of these, Lake San Antonio is more pristine, less crowded and easier to access. The water is clean and the shore lines are easier to access. Oddly, Lake Nacimiento is the heavier traffic lake even though it is more difficult to access.

Lake San Antonio has two access points, North Shore and South Shore. The North Shore of Lake San Antonio has complete facilities including a store and two boat ramps. It is owned and operated by the Country of Monterey. North Shore is underused.

Lake San Antonio is a lake in southern Monterey County, California. The lake is formed by an earth fill dam on the San Antonio River. The dam is 202 feet (62 m) tall and was completed in 1965. The lake and dam are owned by the Monterey County Water Authority. The lake has a capacity of 335,000 acre feet (413,000,000 m)
Lake San Antonio's primary purpose is to provide groundwater. Without the lake, the river would be nearly dry in the summer months. With water in the river year-round, more of it can seep into the ground. Boating, skiing, fishing and camping are popular recreational activities at the lake, particularly in the summer. However, it receives fewer visitors than Lake Nacimiento, several miles to the south. Lake San Antonio has over 500 campsites. Deer frequent the campsites, even lounging around during daylight hours near campsites. Other wildlife that may be spotted include bears, snakes, and wild pigs. Eagles frequent the lake and tours are offered during select months. The North shore offers campsites on the shore where you can leave your boat moored in the water rather than launching it every day.
