I think it is great for a day, as long as you can get in of course.:)

we got there about 9:30 got right on with the boat. there was a line for jetskis, and seadoos though. we had a jetski in the bed of the truck and they said we couldnt launch the ski because it wouldnt be fair to the people in line. they had a kid follow us in a golf cart to make sure we didnt launch the ski. he was actually really cool he said just wait a hour come back and launch the ski.

They'll ask if you have baffles when you pay. You can say yes and hope they dont check :D

Like all the local lakes the speed limit is 35, but they're not aholes about it like Castaic. If you look unsafe they will kick you off or site you. normally just kick you off.

Piru is very small and the wind always ruins the lake mid-day, so find a cove from noon - 4 if you want to keep a flatty out there all day.

Been there and done that on Piru! First place I ever ran my Lavey (when it was new) and there was a group from Hot Boat there (including you right RW?). They pulled me over before the boat was completely on plane.......they wanted to remind me of the 35mph speedlimit. I asked if I was going faster than that (knowing full well I hadn't even come out of the hole).....they said, no but they just wanted to make sure I knew. I thanked them for their consideration. :)eh:) A couple hours later they booted a friend of mine off the lake.....he was ONLY doing like 85mph in the no wake zone by the dam. :rolleyes:

The waiting in line sucks....limited boats. It gets blown out, and the floating $hit house always has $hit all over it!!!!!!

Go there on a weekday and there wont be any lines and fewer idiots on waverunners. Like was said, they don't enforce the speed limit and leave you alone. Good lake for a weekday trip, but I've heard nothing but bad things about weekends.
