Perception, NOT - hubby and I were admiring how wonderful Rodman Slough looks when it's full. Depending on how long you have lived here when She is in a good mood Clear Lake is a true jewel.

When She's not in a good mood it's usually because of drought and no doubt - last year was a doozie!

Hopefully now that the lake is full, it will draw more tourism. Konocti Harbor Resort being gone is unfortunate, that was an awesome draw for tourism. What if anything is happening with it, anyone know?Need some serious creative marketing strategies, yesterday.

and people roll their eyes. It has a crappy reputation and no one wants to come here. Most people remember the "good old days" but those days are done. Too many druggies and slums from Clearlake along Hwy 20 all the way to Nice. Sad but true.

After Mitchell and Hopkins are gone in June, Lake County will be safer and the stores, motels, etc. will be cleaned up maybe even painted. The tourists might even come back with their high limit credit cards.

its great to talk about tourism, but their needs some real money spent in cleaning up the motels on Lakeshore Drive in Clearlake, in LUcerne etc, so people have places to spend the night.

There are not really any nice places and with Konocti closed that leaves a big hole.

The only thing Lake County does about tourism is talk about it. Maybe they could hire somebody from another state to do a study that they'll pay a lot of money for and ignore.

Okay after the wineries what is there for people to do.
Konocti Harbor Inn had entertainment it was run down and now gone.
Hobergs is a blighted dump.
The Lake has major issues with water clarity.
Everything is from the past and what it was.
Gambling should just be made Legal for everyone whom wants a license throughout the state.
People that go on vacation gamble we are in competition with Indian Casinos and you see were the people stop at before they come to Lake County.
The County has to get out of the rut it is in.
There is money out there that will come to the county if the county was not so hostile.
