Lake-Nacimiento is a 16-mile long inland lake located in central California, between King City and Paso Robles. With over 165 miles of tree lined shore, and hundreds of small, secluded coves, Lake Nacimiento offers all the services and scenic beauty you need for a fun-filled family vacation. There is a marina, groceries, supplies, fuel, bait and tackle available at the resort near the lake. There is even a coin-op laundry room located just above the lake general store. Lake Nacimiento is known as the best water-skiing and wakeboarding lake in California. Other activities include swimming, boating and fishing (especially good for bass,) water skiing, jet skiing, hiking and camping. The lake is open 24 hours a day, year round and night fishing is also permitted. Pontoon, ski and paddleboats are available for rent at the marina, and there is no charge to use the horseshoe pits, basketball court and volleyball court. There is a wonderful lakeshore restaurant that offers some of the best food you will find on the coast and beautiful views of Lake Nacimiento. The restaurant is open during the summer months only. A drive to San Simeon and the Hearst Castle, which is approximately 60 miles from Lake Nacimiento, makes a fascinating day trip. And the town of Paso Robles (just 17 miles from the Lake) offers shopping in their historic downtown, a wine festival and car show in May, as well as other yearlong special events.

Lake Nacimiento Weather & Climate

The Salinas Valley, located in Central California, approximately 25 miles inland from the Pacific Ocean, is home to Lake Nacimiento, and towns such as Kings City and Paso Robles. This area of rich, fertile farmlands and lush forest has been dubbed the "Salad Bowl of the Nation." The climate experiences greater contrasts in seasons than coastal areas, although the weather is greatly influenced by the Pacific Ocean. It has warmer summers and cooler winters than cities located right along the coast, and receives approximately 11.27 inches of rainfall per year in the winter months. Trace amounts of rain falls between April and October. Afternoon sea breezes are common, with low clouds and fog nearer the coast. The area is home to many natural hot springs and grapes grown for wine thrive in the local climate.
