Great lake to go to for a weekend of camping. But make your reservations well in advance. It books up fast. Great camp sites and a plus with easy access to Mustang Water Slides!

The kids had a great time, the lake has enough water in it now. I've grown up going camping at Lopez Lake and it is some of my Fondest Memories! It was the closest thing plus the water slides, super fun!

Although the drought has lowered the level of the lake, it remains a beautiful place to hike,picnic and enjoy the beauty of nature. There are several hikes of varying degrees of difficulty and all are worth exploring.

Lopez Lake is close to where we live, so we can go often. Always pleasant and fun. Easy boat launch. The "general" store right there is fantastic.
