“Great kayaking ”
Review of Lake Clementine

Lake Clementine

Attraction details
Reviewed 13 January 2018 via mobile

We like to kayak here.
We like to start at lower lake and go up stream first however the wind on the way back can be a little challenging. Overall it's peaceful and gorgeous - a few beaches a long the way to stop and have a break.
$10 parking and spaces limited.

This is a wonderful lake to get away to for its peace and serenity. I've never been there when its ever been a busy place.

Long narrow lake off the beaten path, and quieter than many local lakes. Lovely kayaking with plenty of steep wooded hills either side. Interestingly, no outtake - the flow just cascades over the spillway as the river flows.

Directions take you right to the entrance where the dam is located just a short walk down so if you're trying to actually hike don't follow the directions to the address listed here. The roads are RIDICULOUSLY narrow, actually quite scary especially with all the blind corners. FREE Parking is very limited and there are a bunch of dummies who can't read the NO PARKING signs and make trying to get out extremely difficult. Other than that the view of the dam was pretty amazing. There's alot of space for you to sit and have a small picnic. It is a little sketchy and steep going down so I personally would not bring children but there are a lot of people who do and have no problems. Definitely worth the hike!

We walked the trail from Hwy 49 to the lake. It is a wide path which was a former road. The trail is easy and has no obstacles. The scenery is beautiful and the walk follows the river all the way. At the lake side you do walk on a highway and narrow state park driveway for less than 1/2 a mile.
