About California

Lake Living in California

The great state of California stretches over 900 miles from the border of Mexico north to Oregon, featuring breathtaking cliffs, the Sierra Nevada Mountains, surreal Redwood forests, and the Mojave Desert. Throughout this land of wonders are scattered equally incredible lakes. Lake houses, lake lots lots, and waterfront property in California have never been easier to find. Between 2,179 lake properties in California, including over 350 with private lakes or private bodies of water on the property, there's a lake house in California for you, and we're here to help you find it.

You may search by lake, city, or even county, or use the interactive map.

The Land Where the Sun Sets

From misty Northern California redwood forests to sun-kissed Southern California beaches, the Golden State will make you believe you're dreaming. California's diverse regions and lively cities have made it one of the most desirable places to live in the world. California lakes are known for their impeccable weather (more sunny days than almost anywhere else in the world), beautiful backdrops, and abundant water sports. Northern California's towering forests shade and shelter beautiful lakes and offer a stark contrast to the sun-soaked lakes of Southern California, many of which count on stunning mountain backdrops. Sacramento, the state's capitol, lies to the north along with the incomparable city of San Francisco, while Los Angeles and San Diego are the major cities in the south.

Going to Golden State

California is jam-packed with life and activity. Whether surfing in Santa Barbara, skiing in the Sierra Nevada, fishing, camping or hiking in the state's wealth of pristine parks, visiting one of California's major cities, or living it up lakeside, you'll never be bored. With 840 miles of coastline, nine national parks, 280 state parks, thousands of campgrounds, and a scenic diversity unparalleled on the planet, the Golden State is an outdoor enthusiast's dream. As attractive as sites like Yosemite National Park and the world-famous Lake Tahoe may be, California's cities also bring many people to the state. San Francisco, home of the Golden Gate Bridge, the nation's largest and most authentic Chinatown, world-class sunsets, and a thriving arts and culinary scene, is one of the country's most beloved cities. The metropolis of Los Angeles meshes with Anaheim, Long Beach, and Huntington Beach to create a mega-city full of attractions and activities for all ages, including visiting Santa Monica Pier, perusing the Hollywood Walk of Fame, or strolling down Sunset Boulevard.

A Chunk of California Gold

Fortunately, California's beautiful lakes surround theses wonderful parks and cities and grant the unique opportunity to live within a short distance of such places while still retaining the isolated, peaceful feeling of being in lake country. Lake Elsinore for example, is nestled against Cleveland National Forest and features snow-capped mountain views, but sits just outside of Anaheim. Known as the Bass Capital of the West, Clear Lake has more than 43,000 surface acres, making it the largest freshwater lake completely within California. It too, sits just north of San Francisco and west of Sacramento. For another option, check out Lake Arrowhead : part of the San Bernardino National Forest, the lake is just 90 miles east from Los Angeles, and a paradise of outdoor recreation and year-round beauty. The San Bernardino Mountains present a spectacular showcase of life by offering visitors over 2,000 species of flora and nearly 400 species of fauna. For a more secluded lake community, see the gorgeous Lake Isabella. Tucked away in the Sequioa National Forest and sitting at the southern range of the Sierra Nevada, the lake's natural beauty is unsurpassed.
