Overview

Overview

Emigrant Landing is the largest day use recreation area on beautiful Pyramid Lake. Located just 90 minutes from Los Angeles, it is the perfect getaway without the long drive.

Visitors enjoy all the lake has to offer, from boating, water skiing, wakeboarding, and fishing. A large sandy swim beach attracts hours of play. Large trees and shelters provide cooling shade.

Water in Pyramid Lake takes a long journey from Plumas National Forest and Oroville Dam in northern California. An aqueduct carries the water down through the Tehachapi Mountains to its southern California resting point at Pyramid Lake.

Natural Features:

The day use area sits on the northern end of Pyramid Lake in the sweeping hills above the Santa Clarita Valley. Pyramid Lake spans 1,300 acres with 21 miles of shoreline. Pyramid Rock, the lake's namesake, is south of the lake's dam in Piru Gorge.

Recreation:

Visitors come here to picnic and spend hours fishing, boating, water skiing and jet skiing. Anglers seek striped, large, and smallmouth bass, rainbow trout, crappie and bluegill.

Facilities:

An accessible fishing pier, boat ramp, picnic tables and flush toilets are on-site. Drinking water and a soda machine are on hand for refreshment from the hot sun.

Nearby Attractions:

The Vista Del Lago Visitor Center offers views of Pyramid Lake on its wraparound viewing platform. It also provides a giant map room with intriguing facts about California's geology and water supply systems.
