A Quick Guide to Poway

Lake Poway is located in San Diego County

Poway is known for its wide open spaces, the beautiful Lake Poway, and for its many places to hike (there are over 55 miles of trails). Thanks to over half of its square mileage being dedicated to preserving open spaces, Poway is known as "The City in the Country."

Since 1971, Lake Poway has served as one of our most famous recreational spots in Poway. It features boating, fishing, mountain hikes, and even archery! Looking for something more leisurely to do? There are many gorgeous lake-view picnic spots that are fun for the whole family to enjoy.

If you're a fan of the great outdoors, Poway is the city for you. Just ask our friendly staff. They'd love to give you suggestions on their favorite places to eat, explore, and play around the city.
