Actually we have never been here, but it is on our bucket list for our next Escondido trip. This just keeps popping up on Trip Advisor, not sure why except we looked at the bridge as a possible vacation spot

Maybe could, but I have never seen anyone swimming. There are no beaches. Only activities seem to be fishing or boating. I have used my kayak on the lake. I have seen windsurfers.
