Picnicking at Lake Jennings

If you're looking to enjoy a real outdoor experience for just an hour or the whole day, grab your picnic basket and head for Lake Jennings.
Come out and enjoy one of our many picnicking spots, located around the lake in scenic areas such as Cloister Cove, Siesta Point, Hermit Cove, and Eagle Point.

Some have BBQ's while others are more suited to a cold lunch.

Relax in the shade and enjoy the true serenity that Lake Jennings has to offer. You and your family and friends will enjoy beautiful scenic views of the lake and surrounding mountains, as well as the abundant wildlife, including deer, fox, and osprey, just to name a few.

Picnic areas are open during normal lake operating hours of Friday, Saturday and Sunday. Cost to access the lake for picnicking includes your parking pass.

Occasionally, Lake Jennings has openings for assistant recreation rangers, dockhands and, at the campground, volunteer park hosts. Position details and application procedures may be found in the human resources section of the Helix Water District website.

Lake operating hours are tied to sunrise and sunset. See current lake (recreation side) operating hours in the weekly fish report.

Lake Jennings is on Harritt Road in Lakeside, California (619) 443-2510
