Welcome to Lake County! Just two hours by car from the San Francisco Bay Area, the Sacramento Valley, and the Pacific Coast, Lake County is known for its spectacular beauty, headliner concerts, unsurpassed recreation, and fine wines. Nestled between three of the most famous wine areas in the United States – Mendocino, Sonoma, and Napa counties – Lake County is fast becoming a destination wine tasting region and has been number three in the country for wine grape sales over the past two years.
Lake County keeps a full calendar of events and plentiful activities throughout the year, with distinct seasons to support them all. With its untarnished landscapes, friendly communities, affordability, and Clear Lake – the largest natural freshwater lake in California and possibly the oldest in North America – it is not only a great vacation destination, but also the choice of thousands as a relocation destination.
Visitors looking to spend a couple of nights or longer vacation can choose from ample accommodations ranging from basic camping facilities to cozy bed-and-breakfast inns and full-scale hotels. Several resorts around Clear Lake, on Cobb Mountain, and at Blue Lakes feature self-contained cabins and cottages.
