Overview

Overview

Lake Sonoma's Boat-In Sites are scattered around beautiful Lake Sonoma, only a 45-minute drive north of Santa Rosa and a two-hour drive from San Francisco.

World famous vineyards and a land rich in history surround the lake, where visitors enjoy boating, fishing and exploring the area's extensive trail network.

Natural Features:

Lake Sonoma is nestled in the beautiful coastal foothills of Sonoma County, California. The area typically has cool, foggy, wet winters and hot, dry summers. Temperatures average in the upper 90s during the summer with short periods of higher heat.

Recreation:

The lake provides great boating and swimming opportunities. Anglers fish for large and smallmouth bass, catfish and sunfish. A small native population of rainbow trout exists in the waters as well.

Hikers, mountain bikers and horseback riders enjoy exploring several miles of trails that meander along the shoreline.

Facilities:

The lake boasts nearly 100 boat-in campsites. Some sites lie close to the lake's ski zones while others are in more secluded regions perfect for fishing or swimming.

Boaters who wish to camp/sleep on their boats may anchor anywhere within the park, but boats must be equipped with anchor lights. If boaters wish to tie up to the shore, they must be at one of the designated campgrounds.
