Lake Murray Reservoir
5540 Kiowa Drive, La Mesa

Yes, Lake Murray used to be a bleak place, half empty, full of hydrilla, and adjacent to a rutted and potholed perimeter road. No more. Over the last five years, the lake and its surroundings have been transformed. Now it's a pleasure to visit. And perfect for skipping pebbles. Try this in the early morning, when the glassiness on the lake's surface can be perfect. Face east so the rising sun backlights the skip splashes, and voila! Hold a contest for the most skips. Then move on to fishing, family picnics, boating, jogging, biking, skating, and birdwatching.
