Lake Tabeaud - Amador Local Favorite Walking Spot

lake tabeaud amador county park

Halfway between Pine Grove and Jackson, CA on a gold country backroad sits a little gem of a lake that makes for a quick and easy escape from the daily grind.

Lake Tabeaud is centrally located in Amador County and is a local favorite spot as a day use hiking, biking, fishing, horseback riding and picnicing getaway.  Local fisherman frequent the small lake for a little fishing therapy and the lake is stocked with trout by fish and game occassionally in the spring.  Although there is no swimming or motorized boats on this tiny lake you can enjoy the water on a kayak or simply sit peacefully on the banks as you fish.

Come enjoy this little walk around our local lake and enjoy one of the favorite exercise fixes that is right in your back yard!
