Located at the southeast shore of Clear Lake (the Lake), lies the City of Clearlake with a population of just over 14,000.
City government is actively pursuing commercial developments for its 10.5 square miles. There is a large public launch ramp at Mike Thompson Harbor at Redbud Park, one of three lakefront parks. Free parking and no launch fees make this an attractive destination. Even though there are no fees to launch boats, vistors and residents must comply with the county wide Quagga Mussel Inspection and sticker program. Boats may be taken to Clearlake Bait and Tackle or Lakeshore Bait and Tackle both on Lakshore Drive near Redbud Park. There are several family style resorts located in Clearlake.
Yuba Community College has a satellite campus in Clearlake offering a variety of classes.
The city has several community activities all year, the most unique and long-lasting (since 1970) is the Annual International Worm Races, celebrated as part of the July 4th activities.
St. Helena Hospital Clearlake, located in Clearlake, was established in 1968 as Redbud Community Hospital and was renamed in November 2008. It was designated a 25-bed Acute Care Critical Access Hospital in April 2005 and is now an integral part of a multi-family system partnering with St. Helena Hospital to serve residents of Lake County. The hospital owns and operates three outpatient family health centers in Clearlake, Middletown and Kelseyville.
