Overview: This is a gem of a park in the middle of the southeastern California desert. It is on Sunbeam Lake, which is a water oasis for birds. There is also a county park on the lake creating many walking trails and further amenities (dirt bike racing track, pavilion, playground, etc.). The park is very well maintained and the people are super friendly. We only stayed one night as we were just passing through, but enjoyed our stay. As a bonus the Blue Angels fly over just about everyday!
