- Anderson Marsh State Historic Park contains 1,065 acres of oak woodland, grass-covered hills, and tule marsh at the southeast end of Clear Lake. The rich natural resources of the area were used by people of the Pomo tribe, who were among the finest basket-makers in North America. Archeologists have found Native American artifacts in the area that date back as much as 10,000 years. Some of the artifacts are on display in the Anderson Ranch House in the park.
