    Highland Springs Recreation Area


    Highland Springs Recreation Area is an extremely rugged and diverse 3200 acre property including a variety of different watersheds, ecosystems and habitats, amazing wildflowers and native vegetation, abundant wildlife and diverse geology.  Historically, trails developed by hunters on horseback have existed for over 50 years. They consist mainly of narrow, single-track trails that often traverse very steep terrain. The access and views are incredible; most of these trails are recoverable, and seem fairly sustainable with moderate hiking and horseback use.

    Warm water fishing, hiking, equestrian trails, swimming, and non-powered boating are enjoyed at Highland Springs Reservoir, a small lake south of Lakeport. The reservoir covers 146 acres of land and is fed by Highland Creek. Catfish, bass, crappie, and bluegill are found in the lake. A large grassy area, picnic facilities, and restrooms are located next to the reservoir. There are horseshoe pits and a basketball court. A disc golf course just off Highland Springs Road is available for public use.
