This is a Great lake for spending the day. We come to this lake about once a week during the summer and kayak. It is a popular area for kayaking, SUPs, fishing, swimming and picnicking. There is plenty of parking, picnic tables, BBQ grills, shade trees, and restrooms. There is also a bike trail that goes right by the lake, with a nice view. Also on this lake is an aquatic center, owned by Sacramento State University, which rents kayaks and SUPs for a good price. It’s very accessible, is located just off the Hazel Ave exit from Highway 50 and is a short walk from the parking lot to the beach area, so it’s a great place for everyone from toddlers to seniors.

Lake Natoma is a beautiful spot. There are several trailheads in the area and the lake itself has the aquatics center where you can rent boats. It's a nice place.

Just a fun place to hang out, take a kiyak, paddleboard SUP or just swim and there is more than one way to get in the water, "enter the park" or go to the "Sac State Aquatic Center" and if you like there are bike trails also.

This is a great place to paddle your kayak or canoe, ply the waters for some fresh trout, or just to swim and relax. There are rocks to sun yourself and even record trout have been caught.

I have no idea where we have been the last 24 YRS living in EG. We just started coming up here last month. I dropped the kids and they used our kayak and I took my bike and rode up to Folsom on the bike trail. Then the next week, my daughter came again and I rode from Big Lots on Watt to Hazel on the bike trail and got 26.2 miles in. All I kept thinking was why did I not bring the kids up here while they were little? Why did we not picnic by the river and go for bike rides? Just stupid and now my kids are 17/18. Such a sadness of such great places! I think my husband scared me about the bike trail and I thought it was some creepy dark place and he was so wrong and it took 24 YRS for me to get out of that. I love it and want to go once a week just for the peace and exercise. Going to do stand up paddle boarding on the lake next!
