Florence Lake - It's All the Lake You'll Ever NeedPhoto of the mighty Sierra Queen, our ferry, and the mountains.

Nestled in the John Muir Wilderness,
this is one of the jewels of the Sierra. Isolated, quiet, peaceful, it offers relief from your soul-jarring urban existence.

Come join us here at the end of the road.

The current projection for lake levels from Southern California Edison is that there should be enough water to run the ferry through September 7th, but afterwards the lake will be drained completely and quickly, therefore shutting down our ferry service. Please note this is a projection only; we are not guaranteed adequate lake levels after September 1st.

You’ll not be stuck in the boonies when you come to Florence Lake. There are facilities and services available that include campgrounds, picnic area, store, boat rentals, horseback riding, and passenger ferry service to places around the lake, and the main connection to the mid-point of the John Muir Trail, the most popular hiking trail in the United States. Check us out; you’ll be glad you did!
