it was about 4-5 feet deep. I had an old DD with only about 1300 lbs in it. the wake was pretty small. If you have a good boat with a good amount of weight in it, I dont see how it would be a problem getting a good wake out of it though. "Bakodise" is a perfect example of that.
We rented the Sunset Ranch for a bachelor party a few years back. We brought our fully weighted X-star. The wake was pretty money. If we spent a bit more time we would have made it better. A bit more weight in the back probably could have done the trick. It's a blast though. Having the lake to yourself is fun.
It is SHALLOW!!! I'd say no more than 3.5'. You can easily stand just over waist deep. We were standing in one end of the lake drinking beer while the boat/rider went around us for their turn around. The lake was also 90 degrees. Basically a bath tub.
Good luck, man. I'm sure there's somewhere to ride down there. We saw a bunch of private lakes.
After a little research, I am staying right next to Shadow Lake in Indio. Seems as though it is a private lake with a few big money home on it. The real estate website showed a picture of the boat lifts and they all aappeared to have wakeboats in there..or at least ski boats w/ towers. I will certainly take a drive by there w/ a curious eye.
