Vail Lake is a large reservoir of 1,000 acres in western Riverside County, California, located in Temecula on the Temecula Creek and Santa Margarita River watershed approximately 10 miles from Old Town Temecula. It was created in 1948 when the owners of Vail Ranch constructed the 132 foot high Vail Lake Dam, which has been owned and operated by the Rancho California Water District since 1978. The 11,000+ acre property surrounding Vail Lake is privately owned, and recreational access to the lake is privately controlled.
