In California, the largest natural lake is Clear Lake. It is 19 miles long by 8 miles wide (give or take a few feet).
On my way to the Pacific coast it was my last stop. I found Northport RV park amongst the umpteen parks surrounding the lake. By good fortune, I got to park right beside the lake.
Dragging my kayak a mere 20 feet over to the water, I was on the lake before I could plan on it.
In the distance is Mount Konocti, an ancient volcano.
