This facility does not accept reservations. Emigrant Landing is the largest day use recreation area on beautiful Pyramid Lake. Located just 90 minutes from Los Angeles, it is the perfect getaway without the long drive. Visitors enjoy all the lake has to offer, from boating, water skiing, wakeboarding, and fishing. A large sandy swim beach attracts hours of play. Large trees and shelters provide cooling shade. Water in Pyramid Lake takes a long journey from Plumas National Forest and Oroville Dam in northern California. An aqueduct carries the water down through the Tehachapi Mountains to its southern California resting point at Pyramid Lake.


Visitors come here to picnic and spend hours fishing, boating, water skiing and jet skiing. Anglers seek striped, large, and smallmouth bass, rainbow trout, crappie and bluegill.


An accessible fishing pier, boat ramp, picnic tables and flush toilets are on-site. Drinking water and a soda machine are on hand for refreshment from the hot sun.
