Lake Clementine is a small recreational reservoir located on the North Fork of the American River within Auburn SRA, a California State Park. Auburn State Recreation Area contains almost 42,000 acres, including 50 miles of river (much of it is whitewater) on the North and Middle forks of the American River, in the rugged American River Canyon. Lake Clementine features great opportunities for boating, fishing and boat-in camping. The lake has less than 3 miles of navigable waters, through a narrow winding canyon. Less than 2 miles is free of 5 MPH no wake zones. The lake has a small marina where annual and daily boat slip rentals are available, and fuel and ice are sold: call (530) 885-5097. There is a single boat launch, and parking is limited to 25 trailers, 15 of which reserved for campsites.
