Welcome to Lake View Acreage!
Highway 111 is the main north/south state highway and retail corridor through the Coachella Valley, a famous resort destination. It runs from the US Mexico border crossing in Calexico to Interstate 10 at White Water. Highway 111 links virtually every desert resort city in the valley. We call the area of our acreage “Lake View Acreage” because this state highway runs through that area.
About Lake View Acreage
To the north and south you will find agricultural dynamos with vineyards, date, and citrus farms. Closest to our acreage is the small town of North Shore, with more than 3,400 residents according to the 2010 census. North-west of North Shore, you will run into Mecca, Coachella, Indio, and Palm Springs. To the South of our acreage you will find Niland, Calipatria, Brawley, and continue onto Calexico and Mexico.
Our acreage is approximately 45 miles southeast of Indio, east of Highway 111. Scattered in a 6×6 miles radius, all of our parcels are flat and the Township in which they are located is easily accessible from nearby paved roads. There are several RV Parks as well as hot mineral spas in the area. At some of these parks, you will find grocery stores and laundromats. The main road leading into the Township is about 2½ miles south of the entrance to Bombay Beach. (All mileage is approximate and may vary.)

Over 150,000 people visit the Salton Sea each year and visitation is on the increase. Popular activities include boating, bird watching, waterskiing, fishing, jet skiing, hiking, camping and off-roading. The All-American Canal offers some of the best warm water fishing in the state and is popular among anglers.
Recreation in the Area
Because of the sea’s low altitude, atmospheric pressure improves speed boat & ski boat engine performance, which makes the Salton Sea one of Southern California’s most popular boating areas. The sea has high buoyancy that makes sailing and kayaking a breeze. It is estimated that some 1 million people visit the sea each year.
For those outdoors enthusiasts who enjoy nature, there are over 2,000 campsites located around the shores of the Salton Sea. Some campsites offer all the amenities (water, showers, restrooms, paved parking, full hook-ups, electric and sewer), but the majority of campsites are for those who don’t mind “roughing it”, more primitive with limited amenities. There is an RV park right in the area of our acreage!
The areas around the Salton Sea are perfect for your off-roading needs! Anza-Borrego Desert State Park is the largest state park in California with Five-hundred miles of dirt roads, perfect for off-roading and motorcycle riding. Ocotillo Wells offers over 85,000 acres of off-road terrain ranging from dirt and sand to rocks and even mud. It’s the largest off-road area in the California State Parks system.
One of the best areas for bird watching in Southern California is the Salton Sea National Wildlife Refuge (NWR). The Salton Sea has one of the most diverse bird species of any NWR. More than 375 birds have been recorded in the Salton Sea and Imperial Valley regions. 4 million birds are estimated to visit the sea in the winter. It is ranked the second highest birding area in the nation, second only to the Texas Gulf Coast.
The Salton Sea is famous for its abundance of life. It is considered to have the most productive fishery in the nation, if not the world. It has been stocked with several salt-water sport fish such as orange mouth corvina, sargo, and gulf croaker. In the mid to late 70’s tilapia inadvertently entered the Sea and flourished. The All-American Canal runs parallel to our acreage and offers some of the best warm-water fishing in the world. Recently a 5’3″ flat head catfish was caught!
