Facts about Lake Berryessa


The lake is heavily used for recreational purposes and encompases over 20,000 acres (80 kmĀ²) when full. The reservoir is approximately 15.5 miles (25 km) long, but only 3 miles (5 km) wide. It has approximately 165 miles (265 km) of shoreline. It has a seaplane landing area that is open to the public. One of the larger islands supported a small plane landing area, but was closed down in the early 1970s after the FAA issued a safety report. The area was also the site of one of the infamous Zodiac Killer's murders.
