About Lake County

How to Beat a Lake County Traffic Ticket

Lake County’s vineyards can be traced back to the 18th century, established by Spanish missionaries. The area had European-American settlers from at least the 1840s and has long been known as a farming and agricultural community. The county gets its name from Clear Lake, the largest geographical feature in the area and the largest natural lake wholly within California. Nearby, Mount Konocti, the largest volcano of the Clear Lake Volcanic Field stands at 4,299 feet. Mount Konocti was largely revered as sacred by the Pomo Indians who inhabited the region as many as 12,000 years ago. At the time of California’s statehood in 1850, nearly 3,000 Pomos still called the area home, but due to enslavement and mistreatment by Spanish and European settlers as well as a lack of immunity to diseases, by 1900 only 450 Pomos survived. Today, six Pomo tribes reside in Lake County, and three bands operate casinos.

It wasn’t until May of 1861 and a combination of land from Napa, Mendocino, and Colusa counties when Lake County was formed. In 1874 steamboats began ferrying residents around the lake, encouraging hotels and resorts to be built quickly and wealthy visitors to indulge in a trip to the area. Despite being the only county without access to a railroad line, more and more people traveled to the area and as the word spread about the area, the population grew. Today, over 64,000 people reside within the 1,329 square mile area.

Lake County has been ranked 24 times as having the cleanest air in California and as the cleanest in the nation in 2013, 2014, and 2015 by the American Lung Association. The area is part of California’s Wine Country and contains over 35 wineries.
