Lake Berryessa provides a beautiful setting for sightseeing and for enjoying the beautiful lake. You will most likely see some geese swimming around and osprey and eagles flying overhead. You may even see an Otter or two playing on the shoreline.Oak Shores Day Use Area is the ideal location to launch your paddle board or kayak. The water area between Oak Shores and Smittle Creek Day Use Areas is non-motorized and peaceful and the safest place for paddle boarding and kayaking. Putah Creek, which extends from Putah Creek Recreation Area/Campground is a six mile long area protected from the wind, which makes it a wonderful place to go paddle boarding, kayaking and swimming, as well as wakeboarding, water skiing, wake surfing, and jet skiing, or taking in the sights on a pontoon boat. It is undoubtedly one of the most beautiful areas at Lake Berryessa. Combining a paddleboard or kayak with your pontoon boat / patio boat rental can offer options for your friends and family while anchored in a secluded cove. We recommend staying close to shore or finding a secluded cove out of the way of motorized boating to be the safest. We do not recommend going out into the main body of water or the channels.
