Clearlake Park (formerly, Clear Lake, Clear Lake Park, and Jacks Landing) is a former unincorporated community now incorporated in Clearlake, in Lake County, California.[1] It is located on the north shore of the southeast end of Clear Lake, just north of the village of Clearlake Highlands and about 15 miles (24 km) east-southeast of Lakeport, at an elevation of 1362 feet (415 m).[1]

The Clearlake post office opened in 1923, changed its name to Clearlake Park in 1937, and changed it back in 1980 when Clearlake incorporated.[2]
