Lake Spaulding rests at an elevation
of 5,014 feet in a glacier carved bowl of granite.
The lake has a surface area
of 698 acres surrounded by giant rocks and a thick pine
forest. The lake was
originally built for hydraulic mining in 1912, but today campers
and boaters enjoy this beautiful
lake. All types of boating is allowed on the lake, and
fishing from the boat and the
shore can be very rewarding. This is a fine lake for a
family outing with a spectacular
setting of granite boulders reaching into the clear
blue waters. This
area of Nevada County also has dozens of other lakes that
can be seen on the map at the
bottom of this page.
