Popular Attractions

  • Water Park at Spring Lake
    Big summer fun has made its way to the Spring Lake swimming lagoon. It's a floating obstacle course where you can catch air on a bounce island, splash down a slide, conquer hills, maneuver across a balance beam, and in all likelihood, get thoroughly soaked. We call it the Water Park at Spring Lake and it will be open through Labor Day.
  • Summer Hikes
    See the summer beauty of Sonoma County by taking the 2016 Trails Challenge. Get your free guidebook, pick 5 trails to hike by Sept. 30 and win prizes. Discover parks from Petaluma to Gualala and Sonoma to Bodega Bay.
  • Bodega Bay
    Bodega Bay is a popular spot for park lovers, and we have several destinations to explore. Families and campers appreciate Doran Beach's wide shore and gentle surf. Fishermen are lured to the easy ocean access at Westside Park and Spud Point Marina. And quiet-seekers like the remote vibe on the Pinnacle Gulch, Shorttail Gulch and Birdwalk trails.
  • Russian River
    Summer days on the Russian River are a classic Sonoma County experience. Soak up the cool beauty by swimming, paddling, and picnicking at one of the seven Russian River beaches from Cloverdale to Guerneville.
