This lake is open to all boating and jet skiing. There are boat rentals, a full-service marina, four boat launches, a snack bar and small store, fishing, windsurfing, swimming, hiking & horseback riding trails. There is a small fee (<20$) to launch your boat!

It can be hot so plan to bring something to do some shade: blankets/strings or parasol because there are no trees on the left side of Madrone point (MP01, MP02, MP03). Right side have some though.
Some Raccoons joined us in the evening/night: hang your food.

We rented 2 canoes at the Marina ($10/day/car to park) but you can also access madrone point by hiking.
If you have a boat (I recommend), explore Warm Springs Creek, that's awesome! The hikes are really nice too.
The water was warm, even in the morning.

Camped 2 nights at Homestead via kayak, highly recommend! Rented kayaks from 101 Surf Sports in Marin (cheaper than Marina) and launched from Yorty. Thumb and Rustlers are closest campsites, but more exposed to sun. Homestead is great but a 30-45 min kayak.

It helps if you have a boat and know how to anchor out from shore.

We stayed at Quicksilver campsite 6. Overall we loved our time at quicksilver! There were so many trees providing shade during the day and the lake is perfect for floating during the day!The hike down is quite a hike....we thought we would bring our wagon with some gear however by the time we got to camp the rocks and tree roots had DESTROYED the wheels (granted this was from Walmart....)...this idea is not recommended.....The path gets very narrow and has some slippery spots. The hike definitely gains and/looses elevation with steep sections and very few flat areas.
