Description
Folsom Lake State Recreation Area is located at the founding point of the Sierra foothill region in Folsom, California. This stunning state park and campground was once home to Folsom's largest powerhouse which was renowned as the "greatest operative electrical plant on the American continent." 

The plant was operational from 1885 through 1952 and supplied a large portion of the Sacramento area with power. The property also houses a bike path consisting of 32 miles, which forms a connection between the Folsom Lake and several other Sacramento County state parks. 

Lake Natoma also rests on the grounds, a popular lake for collegiate athletic endeavors such as crew races, kayaking, sailing, and other water sports. Dogs may join their owners on the premises but are to remain on a lead at all times. At this time, there are no dog amenities provided at Folsom Lake State Recreation Area, and there is not a dog play section on the grounds.

Owners must bring drinking water and poop bags with them to the park to ensure they have access to the things they may need. It is assumed that all owners will clean up after their pets as is required by California law. Folsom Lake Recreation Area is a public recreational facility. 

There is no cost to enter the grounds. Camping spaces are available here, and it is most likely that it is necessary to book a reservation and to be prepared to pay the corresponding fees. Among the on-site amenities at this park are a snack bar, on-site bathrooms, and pleasure craft rentals. 

Some of the available outdoor activities include hiking, biking, running, camping, picnicking, horseback riding, waterskiing, boating, and fishing. The on-premise lake teems with trout, catfish, bass, and perch, making this an ideal spot for the avid fisherman to enjoy. 

Folsom Lake Recreation Area enforces all California dog by-laws. With this in mind, owners must take care that their dogs' vaccinations are up to date. A city dog license is also required. For a great time at a beautiful California park, plan a visit to Folsom Lake Recreation Area!
