“Relaxing, beautiful.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 29, 2013

First time in Sac and wasn't sure what I thought of it until Folsom Lake! For a second, I felt like I was in Africa or the middle east. The lake area was quiet and beautiful this time of year (fall). Nice place to relax and meditate. Saw some with their dogs and some on picnics. Not crowded when I went this past weekend.

Rented a boat here over holiday weekend and had a great time. Water is pretty clean and very warm. Ample parking and clean facilities.

“A Sacramento Treasure”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2013

We actually have a lake in Sacramento!!! Dam-made, and right in the middle of the burbs. Easy access, lots of water (til mid July when they lower the level). A great place for boating, picnics, and hiking. A good place to cool off during Sacramento's summer days.

“Many and varied facilities”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 30, 2013

This SRA covers about twenty different areas, there are boat launches, picnic areas, swimming areas and river walks. Check with the rangers to find what you are looking for, as you could wander for days through all the different park areas they have!

“Just like home”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2013

Well I'm very partial to this place because I grew up around this place. It's a great place to camp or hike or swim in the summer.
