Sardine Lake California

Sardine Lake Resort is on the end - over to the right; best dining in the area. The ridge along the horizon straight ahead is hike-able and awesome. The dark ridge straight ahead is a mile away and conceals Upper Sardine Lake...

Lakes Basin Recreation Area


Walk west from Sand Pond and you come to Lower Sardine Lake, just a totally beautiful place. This is a popular fishing lake with no swimming allowed. The water's so clear that at noon you can see to the bottom; it's like fishing in an aquarium.

Upper Sardine Lake: Takes only a short hike to get to. This is a pure glacial bowl; the rock plunges straight into the water, no beach at all. Great fishing; ice-cold swimming. Due north of Sierra City about 15 minutes. Tahoe National Forest
