I would tell you that Santa Margarita Lake is the main source of fun and recreation throughout the year. As a former ranch town the foothills and valleys along the foot of the Santa Lucia Mountains, Santa Margarita is both farmland and waterfront resort town. With access to its own major source of water and proximity to L.A. and San Francisco, life in Santa Margarita offers convenience and recreation. 


Lookey Loos wanting to catch a glimpse of the highlife can cruise a couple of hours south to the beaches of Santa Barbara or take a day trip in the opposite direction for a weekend getaway to Monterey. The climate is so mild due to the constant ocean breezes that even when the temps reach the summer zenith in the high 80s and low 90s, it still makes for a comfortable evening outside any time of year.

First of all, the lake offers some really great sport fishing where you can catch catfish, bluegill, bass, and trout.
