About Upper Lake
The gateway to the Mendocino National Forest, Upper Lake offers opportunities for all types of outdoor activities, including hiking, camping, hunting, boating, fishing, and even off-highway vehicle adventures.
Nestled in a valley along State Highway 20 at the northern end of Clear Lake is the small pioneer town of Upper Lake. This is the gateway to the 913,306-acre Mendocino National Forest, which offers opportunities for all types of outdoor activities, including hiking, camping, hunting, boating, fishing, and even off-highway vehicle adventures.
One of the oldest settlements in Lake County, Upper Lake is a pioneer, logging, and ranching town and was a main port back in the days when small steam-powered boats carried cargo to several ports of call on Clear Lake. Today, a levee area provides nesting and roosting habitat for an abundance of birds, including herons, egrets, and white pelicans.
Restoration and renovation efforts are continuing in Upper Lake as well as the entire north shore of Clear Lake. At the corner of First and Main streets, an old-time stable got a much-needed facelift. Just up the street, the historic Tallman Hotel underwent a multi-million dollar renovation, and the adjacent Blue Wing Saloon opened as a replica of the original nineteenth century structure that was destroyed by fire years ago.
