Welcome to Lake Hemet where the eagles fly, the marshmallows are roasted, the stars are bright, and the fish are jumping! 

It is your Mountain Lake Escape. People have been coming back year after year because of the fun packed activities like group camping, water thrills at our Splashing Eagle Waterpark or jumping in one of our kayaks for a race on the lake.

Charming New Rustic Cabins!

The new pine smell immediately relaxes the mind and body as you cozy up in one of our new cabins. Each cabin is furnished, TV, and deck with lake view. Kitchen you ask? This is the outdoors! Every unit has a picnic table and fire pit. Brand new bathrooms are centrally located.

Splashing Eagle Waterpark
