Folsom Lake, CA

Folsom Lake Boating


Folsom Lake is a playground on the water for boaters. The lake welcomes all sorts of boating from jet skis and pleasure cruisers to waterskiing and fishing. This family-oriented destination is a favorite place to relax and enjoy the water on hot summer days.

Boat rentals are available at Beale's Point and at Granite Bay. Sailing is excellent with steady afternoon winds. Several sailing clubs make Folsom Lake their home water. Paddlers in canoes and kayaks explore the lake's shoreline.
