Like the lower Coeur d'Alene River in north Idaho, these BLM lands have lots of wetlands and ponds. Great country for bird watching. This is Bass Pond with a nice dock to sit and watch the coots.
Great area to explore. More like a Regional Park than BLM lands, but that is ok. The facilities are in great shape so take good care of them. These days the taxpayers cannot afford to go fixing stuff that yahoo's destroy.
This is a picture of a State of California wildlife access site on the north end of the area. There is really no excuse for this. The state of California Fish and Wildlife Department really need to clean this up. It appears that they have given up managing the public lands that are their responsibility. Don't let this happen to your BLM managed lands!!
