About Castaic Lake State Recreation Area

Set like a sparkling oasis in the brown hills of southern California, Castaic Lake State Recreation Area offers up some truly spectacular fun in the sun. We’re talkin’ great boating, fishing, jetskiing, wakeboarding, hiking and biking. This spot is also part of the California State Water Project, and, more importantly, the primary filming location of the Mighty Morphin’ Power Rangers. With just about every water activity you can think of available (as well as some pretty cool competitions) set amongst some truly stunning lakeside scenery, we think this one is definitely worth the trip.

Google Maps (while we heart them) will lead you astray, so follow it only about 3 miles in after getting off the freeway. Then just follow the signs to the park, and make a left at Main Ramp Road.

This park is only one exit away from Six Flags Magic Mountain, so consider making it part of your SoCal adventure!

There isn’t a ton of shade, so be sure to bring a canopy or umbrellas if you plan to stay for a while. We don’t want you roastin’ out there..
