Lake Hemet: Local Mountain Lake Escape In Idyllwild

Lake Hemet is surrounded by the majestic beauty of the San Jacinto Mountains, in Mountain Center, near the mountain town of Idyllwild. The scenery is breathtaking no matter which direction you look. Tall pines, manzanita trees, sage, and giant oaks abound.

Lake Hemet is one of the most popular spots in Southern California for camping and fishing. The recent additions of the Soaring Pines Cafe serving delicious food and Splashing Eagle Waterpark has made Lake Hemet the vacation spot to be during the spring and summer months.

Remember to pack a camera and binoculars, and keep a watchful eye, as the eagles are often seen soaring above and around the Campground. There are also plenty of Hawks soaring overhead throughout the forest and campground. Come and enjoy camping, fishing, boating and the breath-taking scenery all year round.

Fun Fact: Halle Berry said she celebrated her birthday here. The whole Kardashian and Jenner clan filmed an episode of Keeping Up With The Kardashians at Lake Hemet. Classic shows such as Airwolf and Bonanza also had episodes filmed at Lake Hemet.

VIP CardsVIP

Lake Hemet along with Little Lake and Diamond Valley Lake offers a frequent fisher promotion called the “VIP Card”. Please ask for details when you check in at any of the three Lakes of Hemet.

Note: Swimming is allowed in designated areas only.  The speed limit is 10mph for both boating and driving in the campground. No fireworks allowed. Fireworks are not permitted.

Low water warning: As many already know, California is in a drought and we are in a low water situation. Our launch ramp is still accessible and open to private boaters, but the launch conditions are less than ideal. Currently boaters are launching in 3.5 feet of water off the ramp.

handiHandicapped restrooms and showers are available in Camps 1, 2, and 4. Upon request, special assistance can be given to handicapped persons.
