Nestled against the western edge of sprawling Tenmile Lake and just barely inland from the Pacific Ocean, Lakeside is a dream home for fishermen, boaters and swimmers. Lakeside is a small, tight-knit community with over 100 locally-owned small businesses and neighborhoods filled with self-proclaimed captains and cheerful beachcombers.
Enjoy family-friendly activities and festivals starting with Mother’s Day weekend, like the annual Crawdad Festival, Columbia Drag Boat Races, and community Christmas tree lighting. Once known for being a popular retreat for rich 1940’s Hollywood celebrities, this coastal paradise is brimming with small-town charm and imbued with an age-old nautical spirit. It’s easy to see how anyone would, as they say, “get hooked on Lakeside.”
