With a wide variety of activities, plenty of picturesque scenery and lots of spots for great photo ops, you’ll be glad you decided to make this your summertime travel destination.
Lake Skinner is located in Winchester, California, about an hour and a half southeast of the city of Los Angeles. What will you find there? Well, in addition to the beautiful scenery, you can enjoy so many different activities with your whole family that you won’t know where to start first. You’ll want to bring along your tent and sleeping bags, as this is the perfect camping spot. Then enjoy everything from hiking and picnicking to horseback riding, fishing and sailing. With more than 1,400 surface acres of water, there is plenty of room for all your favorite water activities, and fishing is one of the most popular ways to spend the day there. You’ll find everything from bass and carp to striped bass and bluegill, plus stocked catfish and trout. Another popular activity at Lake Sinner is bird watching. There are so many stunning birds that call the park home, you can easily spend the entire day wandering the trails with your binoculars and guide book while trying hour hand at identifying as many different species of birds as possible.
If you happen to be at the park in June, be sure to visit the annual award-winning Temecula Valley Balloon and Wine Festival that is always a huge hit every year. You’ll enjoy live music, lots of great food and plenty of beer and wine to enjoy. Of course there are also balloons. Lots and lots of balloons.
A family vacation like this deserves a great car to get there. The CL550 Coupe from Mercedes-Benz of Encino is the perfect automobile for your trip to Lake Skinner. You’ll love the luxury and comfort, plus you’ll have all the room you need for you, your family and your camping gear.
