If you want to relax in the Eastern Sierra Nevada, Lake Sabrina offers a wide range of water recreation activities. There are motorboat, kayak, and canoe rentals from the Lake Sabrina Boat Landing store and restaurant, or you can bring your own and use the boat ramp to launch. Lake Sabrina makes a great place for stand-up paddle boarding as well. If you want a nearby place to camp, Sabrina Campground rests along the Middle Fork of Bishop Creek and is a nice shady spot. 

Damming the Middle Fork of Bishop Creek in 1908 created Lake Sabrina. This was done in order to supply constant water to downstream hydroelectric plants. The lake is very popular for fishing and boating, and it also hosts trailheads that lead to some excellent day hikes and backpacking into the John Muir Wilderness and Eastern Sierra Nevada. The lake is home to rare western juniper trees along the shore that are only found on the Middle Fork of Bishop Creek in this region of the Sierra Nevada, so be sure and stop to enjoy their shade. You can’t miss them. Enjoy beautiful Lake Sabrina.
