Cheery lake is the largest lake in the Stanislaus National Forest. Cherry Lake is just outside of Yosemite's borders. Open all year, perfect for summer recreation, road access is subject to winter closure. Cherry Lake visitors can enjoy an uncrowded lake perfect for water sports, swimming, fishing and hiking. The Day use area is on the West side of Charry Valley Dam with a boat ramp and a designated swim area.

Cherry lake is fed by the North, East and West forks of Cherry Creek. They begin in the Emigrant Wilderness and all of them flow roughly southwest. The water from the lake (reservoir) powers the Dion R. Holm hydroelectric facility power plant. It was built by San Francisco as part of the Hetch Hetchy Project, which supplies drinking water to San Francisco. Human contact with the water is allowed because the water is filtered.

It is at an elevation of 4,701 feet.Cold at night but the days are the best

From Groveland Ranger District Office head east on Highway 120 approximately 5 miles, turn left on Cherry Lake Road; follow Cherry Lake Road 20 miles to Cherry Lake. Cherry Lake Road is a narrow, steep and winding paved route where safe travel speeds average 20-30 mph. But if you really want true feeling follow the dirt road pass camp site 14 and hike in. You are right on the lake

Hope you enjoyed the photos,let me know
