      Lake Gregory is just down the road from Lake Arrowhead, and the useful thing about it is how there is actually a public beach. When I was a kid there used to be a public beach at Lake Arrowhead, but they decided to plant grass there and have a little park now. At least Lake Gregory is smart enough to be open to the public, which I think brings in more revenue in some ways.
