Hume Lake

Area Status: Open

Hume Lake is an 87-acre lake formed by a unique multiple arch dam, constructed in 1908. Built to support a large, commercial logging operation, the lake supplied water to the longest lumber flume transporting logs to the Central Valley. Today the lake area is a destination where visitors can enjoy fishing, non-motorized boating, hiking, mountain biking, and camping during the summer months, and snow play during the winter. An interpretive trail follows the shoreline of the lake. Reservations are strongly recommended for Hume Lake Campground.
