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

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.

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!

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.

Folsom is a great melting pot of boaters, Jetskiers Campers, Hikers, Nature Lovers, Bycilists, Fisherman, Water Skiers, Equestrians and just about everything else. Can get rather hot in the summer, so plan accordingly and plan to get in the water. Like all of California's Wild Places, it has its share of critters, including Rattlesnakes in summer especially. Use a little caution when hiking or exploring. Beals Point RV campground is a good place to stay and close to everything.
