I want to test the boat out at Lake Elsinore since it's been sitting all winter. I haven't been to the lake in several years since I live in San Diego. Our friend's live in Temecula so Lake Elsinore is the closest lake to go.
Where is a good place to launch and spend the day with the family?
We always launch at the Seaport ramp off Lakeshore. There is a park right next to the ramp with nice beaches, picnic tables, restrooms, and a few cabanas. The ramp is just a quick put from the cove(though legally you would have to drive almost a full lap to get there from the ramp), which is another nice place to spend the day..
I would say head to the cove. to the left as you leave Skyport launch. you can go there along the shoreline (no wake zone) directly or just cruise or as stated earlier go right around the lake. Cove is protected from wind and wake.
