Lake Piru Recreation Area

piru lake recreation

If you cannot stand the LA bling and crowds over at busy Castaic Lake, maybe you wanna head west on Hwy. 126 to this place which is tucked away in a canyon. Only one road leads into this place. One large campground serves this lake & admission is charged to enter the area. Speed boats are common.

Very limited shore access is apparent by the 'no parking signs'. You can only reach the eastern shore from back country hiking trail #17W05 through Los Padres National Forest.
