Barbara County Park
Not far from Santa Barbara, the wine country, Solvang and the ocean, Lake Cachuma is a destination park in its own right. The lake is a reservoir, so water access is limited to boating, but there is a pool in the summer, as well as a Play Area, excellent hiking and fishing, and Nature Center.
