One of California's most prominent state reservoir parks, this protected area features a man-made freshwater body, namely the Castaic Lake. It boasts of a shoreline of 29 miles (46.6 kilometers), and an ample expanse of approximately 4,224 acres (1,709 hectares) of sweeping countryside. The Castaic Dam garners a lot of attention thanks to its majestic sloped 425-foot-tall (129.54 meters) concrete barrier that divides the lake into two separate sections; the lower lake for swimming and rowing and the upper lake for sailing, power boating, fishing and jet skiing. Amenities include convenient boat rentals, picnic tables, a bait shop for anglers and a mini-mart that stocks an eclectic range of scrumptious snacks and refreshing beverages.
This stunning state park encompasses soaring cliffs, verdant hills and rocky ridges which loom over a scenic expanse. Santa Susana Pass State Historic Park, where history and nature combine to dazzle visitors with an unforgettable experience, is crisscrossed by several trails which wind through its varied landscape. Home to a historic road as well as natural landmarks, this park is stippled with diverse flora and fauna, making for an adventurous outdoor excursion.
