Have an adventure (or not!) at Lake Nacimiento
Tuesday, July 30, 2013
Summer days in Paso Robles can get warm and when they do, smart people head to the water.
A favorite attraction for locals and visitors who love to take part in outdoor recreation is Lake Nacimiento, about 20 minutes west of Paso Robles.
One of the best things about the lake is that it's large enough that you can seek out and find whatever type of lake day you're looking for. You can camp, ski, tube, wakeboard, fish, cruise, sunbathe or just sit in a cove in the shade and play cards.
The fact is, most seasoned lake-goers do a combination of all of the above on any given day at Lake Nacimiento, which is why it's such a popular destination.
If you'd like to take a peek at what's going on at the lake, or to check the weather and water levels, check out the live webcams from Lake Nacimiento Live.
Two cameras cover the Oak Shores marina and main channel, and their brand new camera, set to launch any day, is perched on a hill overlooking the main marina at Lake Nacimiento Resort. (This is no amateur webcam, when the Nation Weather Service realized that Lake Nacimiento Live uses the same high quality cameras they use around the nation, the Ventura office started checking the webcams every morning before they post the latest weather report).
Caution: Checking the lake webcam from your office computer may cause an instant urge to pack the ice chest and head to the lake. Use with care and at your own risk.
If a day trip to the lake doesn't sound like enough time for you to enjoy the experience to the fullest, you can always find current lodging and camping information at www.nacimientoresort.com, as well as rental information on boats, houseboats, jet skis and kayaks.
Vacation rental information, lakefront and otherwise, can be found at www.centralcoastgetaways.com.
See you at Naci soon!
