Jackson Lake Description

Jackson Lake is a small body of water located in a canyon east of Wrightwood and Big Pines. Jackson Lake was formed by the San Andreas fault, and is mostly fed by snow runoff from the mountains. During summer months, many fishermen utilize Jackson Lake, as it is the only real place to go fishing in Wrightwood. During winter months it isn't uncommon to see the top of Jackson Lake frozen over with ice.

Jackson Lake is good for more than just fishing. The area is a hub for campgrounds and picnic areas. Around Jackson Lake you can find Mt Oak Campground, Lake Campground, Peavine Campground, Apple Tree Campground, Mescal Picnic Area, Jackson Lake Picnic Area, and several organizational camps.
