Located on the northern side of Lake Natoma, this picnic and boating area is part of the Folsom Lake State Recreation area. Entrance fee is $10 and the park features a small sandy beach with lifeguard on duty, picnic tables with BBQ pits, hiking and biking trails, and ample parking.
We love the sandy shore and shallow water for kids to play in, plus the huge shady picnic area to eat lunch. Lots of families there, too, and not as much partying going on as on other parts of the river. Great way to beat the heat!
