The majestic beauty of the San Jacinto Mountains surrounds Lake Hemet. The scenery is breathtaking no matter which direction your gaze travels. Tall pines, manzanita trees, sage, and giant oaks abound. Remember to pack a camera and binoculars, and keep a watchful eye, as the eagles are often seen soaring above and around the campground. There are also plenty of hawks soaring overhead throughout the forest and campground. Enjoy camping, fishing, boating, and breath-taking scenery all year round.
