Escondido California, county of San Diego
Created by a 100-foot-high Dam, Lake Dixon, has a surface of 76 acres and is up to 80 feet deep. 90 percent of the water comes from the Colorado River.
The lake was stocked six years before it opened, with large mouth bass, catfish, and now trout.
Included in the 527 acres of park are: 34 campsites, each with a table, stove and food locker and 10 campsites additional have sewer, electrical and water hookups for motor homes and trailers; rental boats with electric motors are also available
The entire complex is named after Jim Dixon, member of an early Escondido family, and for many years the Superintendent of the Escondido Water Company. The elevation is such that water can flow by gravity from the aqueduct to the reservoir, and then through the filtration plant into the City system.
