Folsom Lake State Recreation Area, Granite Bay Reviews - Write a Review
Really nice variety of campsites. Watch out for the ground squirrels though. Some sites are overrun during most daylight hours. They are cute but it ends THERE; they're unafraid, invasive, smart and BOLD!! They have almost no fear of humans when they want to pilfer your site. They will get to anything they want bad enough by tearing or chewing through it......including tents. I highly recommend storing your food and other items you value in your vehicle anytime you leave your site at night or during the day....squirrels go away at night when the nighttime animals venture out.
First time to this lake for boating. Having the option to launch from one of their many launches makes for awesomeness. Nice greenish clear water with a 5 foot or so visibility. Open, many coves for those that want to anchor. Is fed by the American river, so very clean, almost drinkable water.
Nice area park for tents and/or RVs. Hookups or dry camping for rvs. Public restrooms available. Drinking water available. Sr. Discounts. Dump station for a fee. Lake popular for boating and fishing.
Google maps could not take us there, they charge $12 to enter the park and there is very limited parking. Nice place though!
