Lake Gregory stands amid a cool cedar and pine forest in the San Bernardino Mountains. But don’t let the pastoral setting fool you - the park teems with activity throughout the year as nature lovers converge for a wide range of recreational activities.People flock to Lake Gregory to enjoy its cool 84-acres of surface area for swimming and water sports. Each August, a 2,500-year-old Chinese tradition comes alive at Lake Gregory in the form of Dragon Boat Races. The elongated canoes seat 12 to 20 people, and a drummer beats a cadence to set a pace for the paddlers.Other activities include a fitness trail with exercise stations, picnic areas with barbecue grills, fishing, a skate park and model boat area. Four-legged friends are welcome at Lake Gregory’s dog park.The park lodge is available for events ranging from weddings to company parties.

We stopped at Lake Gregory while driving the Rim of the World Scenic Byway. It's a small scenic lake, but more of a recreation area than a nature experience. There are houses and/or businesses around a good part of the lake. A trail follows the...More

I strenuously do not recommend this place. I was there 10 years ago and it was nice. Just went this past Memorial Day and I was horrified. The water is filthy. The area where they have swimming(not the area that costs $25.00), there is sewage...More

We have been to Lake Gregory Regional Park a number of times. Its a nice lake park at Crestline. There are water sports in the summer. Its also nice for a walk or just relaxing.

My wife and I walked around the very pretty lake, estimated by someone we passed at about 2 1/2 miles. Very nice path, very pretty views from several spots.

Be careful to pay for parking or you will get towed.Otherwise,the lake is a nice getaway from the heat,traffic,etc. of the flatlands below.There are plenty of things in and out of the water to keep kids busy all day.

If you're just coming to enjoy some scenery and the park, then this is a nice stop. But there are others with the same drive time that are better if you're coming from a distance. The rentals seem overpriced.

its worth the drive to the beautiful mountain, check prices before you go, and be prepared to pay the heafty parking fee (IMHO) and do bring your own shade and snacks.

We visited with a large group and all felt that the water was weedy and the lack of a bathroom on the south side of the beach was a little weird since that is where people are swimming. My nephew was an inch shy of...More

Family gathering! Eight year old to sixty four year old and everything in between. Too many "too" things. 1. Parking too much ($10.00) 2. Parking too far from water park (south beach) 3. Water Park too much ($25.00) 4. Restrooms too smelly. 5. Picnic area...More

Can you float tube?

Response from Judy K | Reviewed this property |
If you mean just float around on a tube, yes.
Can you swim in the lake during the off season? I'm visiting in late September and prefer to get my laps in open water as opposed to pools.

No, the park has closed and there is no way in to swim. But, there is open water at nearby Lake Arrowhead. I think access to swimming is thru the various country clubs, associations, etc. There are probably Day Passes. I... More
