Stand Up Paddleboarding on Convict Lake

Do you have Paddleboarding Experiences you'd like to share? Find out How!

  • Convict Lake is one of the most iconic lakes in the High Sierra, and one of the most easily accessed by car. Stand up paddling across deep, crystal clear water, beneath the towering granite and limestone cliffs of Mount Morrison and Laurel Mountain, is an experience not soon forgotten. Park at the marina at the north end of the lake and enjoy an easy launch from the public boat ramp, or if you prefer park and launch from the beach on the east shore. For glassy water start early in the day—the earlier the better—before the afternoon winds kick up. Bring your pet along, and your fishing rod!
