Benbow Lake

State Recreation Area - California

Benbow Lake State Recreation Area surrounds Benbow Lake, a reservoir on the South Fork Eel River in Humboldt County, California. A concrete dam was constructed across the South Fork Eel River in 1928 to provide hydroelectric power for development in Garberville, impounding a reservoir. There are campsites and a large day-use picnic area. Hiking, picnicking and camping are popular summer time activities, while salmon and steelhead fishing are popular in the winter.
