Surrounded by homes, ducks, geese and swans, the serene waters of Lake San Marcos forms the sparkling centerpiece for the well-established and beautifully-maintained Lake San Marcos community within the city of San Marcos, about eight miles inland from the Pacific Ocean between the coastal cities of Carlsbad and Encinitas.
Formerly a retirement community, today Lake San Marcos is an all-ages community with the exception of The Chateau at Lake San Marcos condo community which is restricted to residents age 55 or better.
