Located a short 1.5 miles from North Fork on Road 222 heading north, this lovely little man-made lake is a great location for relaxing and doing a bit of fishing or taking a short hike. A kayak or canoe can be a good choice for this small lake as well. Bring a packed picnic or BBQ on fire grates provided. There is an ample parking area and vault toilets for your convenience. The folks hanging out at Manzanita Lake are generally a friendly crowd. If you forget anything for your picnic it is only a few minutes drive to North Fork get whatever you need.
