Past POIs - San Luis Reservoir [Merced County, California]

Located in Merced County, California is the San Luis Reservoir which is a water storage reservoir that you shouldn't miss if you are in the area. In fact, it is the largest off-stream reservoir in the United States.

If you do happen to visit, make sure to check out the free Romero Overlook Visitor Center. This center has a lot of information behind the history of the reservoir as well as a very scary picture of how low the water level was just one year ago in 2016 (we went in 2017).
