Notice: The Serenity Gathering at Lake Hemet on March 17-20th, 2016 has been moved to another venue. Please contact Serenity Gatherings for more information.
Welcome to Lake Hemet
Lake Hemet is surrounded by the majestic beauty of the San Jacinto Mountains. The scenery is breathtaking no matter which direction your gaze travels. Tall pines, manzanita trees, sage, and giant oaks abound. 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.
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.
