Lake Berryessa Boating

Lake Berryessa is a popular boating destination for people from the Bay Area as well as the Sacramento Valley and north bay counties. Miles of shoreline and secluded coves offer enjoyable spots for anchoring houseboats, for kayaking and canoeing, and for anglers. The main body of the lake draws waterskiers, jet skiers, and pleasure cruisers.

Lake Berryessa has two full service marinas - Pleasure Cove Marina and Markley Cove Resort. Both are located around the southern end of the lake.
