Just uncovered the boat and was checking it out today. I'm gonna hopefully do a little work to my heads before the season. You go to success or Kaweah more?

 Always wondered what those lakes are like. Does either one do mussel inspections?  If so, how strict? How is the wind?  Are they full?  How are the launch ramps?  Any docks or slips?
Thanks

Both small lakes but still fun. I have never seen any type of inspection on either lake not even for noise. Both lakes are full currently. Kawiah sits in more of a canyon so it does get windy there must not much wind at all at success. Kinda how I got moved to Porterville when I was young. We used to come up here a lot to success from Orange county because it was about a 3 hour drive and used to have a KOA camp ground close to the lake...would not stay there anymore it's pretty ruff now and it's no longer a KOA. But the army corps of engineers has done a good job with the RV sites actually at lake Success.

Oh and success has good ramps it has three total at high water and one on each side of the lake during low season. I think kawiah just has one but it's a nice wide ramp

I'll have to check them out. I have an outdrive now that never completely drys out and fails inspections down here at Castaic and Pyramid. They are very strict.

Yea for sure. I have never had any type of inspection or seen anyone getting one. I rarely even see a park ranger other than just driving around. Even the 5.00 day use fee is on the honor system, just a box with some envelopes to put your 5 bucks in and a part to tear off for your dash. Honestly not even sure most people pay.

I do know the sheriff department did take over the lake patrol last year from the park service though.

Success is not bad. I got hasstled at kaweah last year on the waverunners. They ignored my wife in the boat but stopped me and even had me remove my life jacket to check for a uscg stamp of approval.  That was a first.  Not enough to scare me away though.   Still prefer pine flat

Yea Kawiah does seem to be a little more of a hassle. But I believe both of them are now patrolled by Tulare county sheriff's office

Kawiah also seems to be a little more "trendy" with the younger crowd too then success is.

Yea it's at 100 percent full now. Yes it will be a zoo this weekend, plan to run up there fairly early on Saturday and see how things go...most likely leave before the craziness starts with the jet skis and seadoos
