So why is it named Covict Lake? Well, you need to visit the website for the long story... http://www.convictlake.com/history.html
The story claims the events of 1871 were the inspiration to Bob Marley's song, "I shot the Sheriff" (and more)
The short version (about the name of the Lake) is a few escape convicts in 1871 killed a Pony Express boy, a Sheriff and his Deputy.. The Convicts, eventually captured, were taken by a band of vigilantes and hung.. All this taking place around the shores of the lake (then known as Monte Diablo Lake.
