FIRE SCAR: It is with sadness that rewrite this paragraph. The horrific wildfire season of 2020 has decimated this beautiful forest of the Central Sierra Nevada mountains. The tallest trees of Tamarack, the lake shores, businesses, historic cabins and homes. This burnt forested area may be in major clean up mode for years to come.

Western Sierra lake for fishing, kayaking, boating & camping. Can get crowded in summer at this popular destination for central valley locals. Shaver Lake is a very popular recreational lake, due east of Fresno & south of Yosemite National Park, on the way to Huntington Lake & Sierra Summit Ski Resort. Surrounded by lush pine forests, this haven has plenty lodging, camping & outdoor activities, be it winter or summer. Hit the back roads & find seclusion. Winter time is quiet & skiers passing through.
