A hot & dusty summer walk with limited cover. Too hot for my 4-legged furry friend. Pretty views of the lake. Buzzing with people activity: canoes, SUPs, picnics, walks, runs, bikes & swims. Will return on a Fall or Winter day when pooch will enjoy sunshine on a cool day. #8 of 10 favorite regional parks.

I have lived in Sonoma County for six years, but this was my first visit to Spring Lake. I will not wait that long again! Walk, jog, bike, boat, or ride your horse, all is possible in the lovely park. During my visit, the swimming area was closed, but you could probably swim on sandy Concession Beach where the boat rental is located. I took a walk around the lake using a combination of equestrian/hiking trails and the paved bike path, my distance was 2.5 miles. The are may side paths offering opportunities to extend you walk or run. Numerous benches and picnic tables surround the peaceful lake, which has a no wake boat policy (most of the boats I saw were human powered). The reed and tree lined lake path offers shady lake side and sunny vista views. There is also a children's play area.

We were doing a road trip in which so much was not available to us because we wanted to maintain social distancing. This seemed like a perfect spot to stop on our way home and it was lovely. We managed to get there on a beautiful day with no smoke and enjoyed that most people were wearing masks (okay, there are always those idiots that won't but we were able to avoid them since it is such a large space). Definitely worth a stop.

We camped here for one night on a long road trip, and the park is beautiful. Our campsite (#5) was close to the lake, where we enjoyed a leisurely evening stroll among joggers and bicyclists. There is only one bathroom/shower building for the entire campground, and those facilities could use a little more attention. The nearby East West Cafe was a great find, and the perfect place to eat on our last night.

If you are looking for a park to walk in or bike in, this is a good park. If you are looking for a nice park with a great playground, swimming beach, good restroom, water fountains, flowers, mowed grass then look elsewhere. The state has a lot of guts charging $7 for this dump of a park.

My husband and I decided to checked out this lake. We enjoyed walking around the paved trail which goes around the whole lake. There is a swimming area and an kayaking area too. You can have picnics, go swimming, kayaking, ride bikes, run or just walk and enjoy the beautiful scenery around you.

I live nearby this lovely Sonoma County park. This is an excellent park to enjoy for solo walks, or with friends and family. In addition to the paved trail that surrounds the lake, there are numerous side trails to get all the walking exercise you wish to have. This well maintained park offers campsites and lake fishing plus small boating opportunities. Summer months a swimming pond is open for enjoyment of entire families.

I am a wedding officiant and recently, on a Sunday morning, I performed a wedding at the lake's edge under beautiful blue skies and the warm Sonoma County sun. We met in the parking lot and walked along the path till we found the perfect spot right near the water. It was very romantic and filled with a great sense of joy. Nearby is another country park and lake in Howarth Park. Couples looking for an outdoor place to wed with choices that include rustic fences, tree covered paths or lake side beauty should consider Spring Lake and Howarth Park.

My husband and I took the 2.3-mile paved trail around the lake as a welcome break after a long drive. It was very peaceful and beautiful there. Lots of friendly dog-walkers as well as a few joggers and bikers.

We landed in Santa Rosa to check out the brewery, and were looking for a place to hang for an hour or so. We found this part on a map, and set by the lake on one of many benches, to read and just take it easy. At the our reading time, we went over the lagoon to take a dip. It did not look at that refreshing, but I wanted to get wet. I went in, and ended up swimming laps for 40 minutes. The water was great. there were no people splashing about, and the I was amazed that there was ample opportunity really get in a great swim. The park looked amazing. Boats, trails, etc. If we had more time, would have gone back and spend at least 1/2 a day
