Lake Skinner Recreation Area

Did you know there are more than 80 bird species that call Lake Skinner home? Well, if you are an avid birdwatcher, Lake Skinner is the place to be this summer. The RivCo Parks website provides a well-detailed Birding 101 guide to help you find the birds easier and if you are lucky, you might just spot a Bald Eagle! 

Located in the rolling hills of Winchester, CA, the Lake Skinner Recreation area has more to offer than bird watching. Visitors can enjoy the majestic natural views and the ample recreation opportunities available at Lake Skinner. Although swimming is not permitted at the lake, visitors can partake in camping, picnicking, hiking, horseback riding, sailing, fishing or enjoy end splash pad. 

The recreation area offers two shade shelters, picnic benches and barbecues for daytime visitors. Campsites offer benches and fire rings for overnight guests. If you are interested in camping at Lake Skinner make sure you reserve your spot ahead of time via the RivCo Parks reservation system!
