Water Ski / Jet Ski

Both Crowley Lake and Grant Lake allow water-skiing and jet skiing, however, no rentals are available so please bring your own watercraft. Grant Lake is also great for windsurfing. High mountain lakes can be very cold, so a wetsuit is recommended to help insulate your body from the chilly water.

Crowley Lake:

Crowley Lake is a man made lake, 12 miles long and 5 miles wide. Crowley Lake is a large reservoir that supplies water and power to the City of Los Angeles. Although famous for trout fishing, Crowley Lake offers various other water sports, such as kayaking, water skiing, wake boarding, wake surfing, kite surfing, and stand up paddle boarding. Crowley Lake Fish Camp, the only concession on the lake, is operated in cooperation with LADWP. All visitors, boats, campers, must access the lake through Crowley Lake Fish Camp. Crowley Lake Fish Camp offers a full service marina with 200-plus private slips, a fleet of 84 rental boats, rental cabins, full hook-up RV Sites, dry camping sites, a tackle shop and convenience store.

Grant Lake

Grant Lake is by far the largest of the four lakes on the June Lake Loop, although, as a reservoir on the Los Angeles Acqueduct system, its level can vary widely. The 12,000 foot elevations of the summit of Mt Wood loom just above, as do the lush aspen groves of Parker Bench and the rugged Aerie Crag on the north side of Reversed Peak, but the lakeshore and immediate surroundings are themselves contrastingly somewhat more barren in appearance, with desertlike sagebrush being the predominant vegetation, and only a few trees outside of the ones that have been planted in the campgrounds. After 10:00 am, speedier watercraft may take to the lake, and sports such as waterskiing, wakeboarding and jet-skiing may be enjoyed. Most of the shoreline is accessible to the public by unpaved roads that connect to both California Route 158 and U.S. 395. Surrounding lands are administered by the USDA Forest Service and the Los Angeles Department of Water & Power. There is an absence of private development here, aside from the Marina and Campground facilities, and there are no power or telephone lines.
