Spring Lake Regional Park in Santa Rosa is one of Sonoma County's most popular parks, featuring trails, boating, a campground, picnic areas, natural history center, and a summer swimming lagoon.


Spring Lake is a 72-acre reservoir open for boating (electric engines only) and paddling. A year-round boat ramp is located at the end of the park's Newanga Avenue entrance. Kayak and paddleboard rentals are available 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays through the summer. The rental office is next to the swimming lagoon via the park's Violetti Road entrance. Rentals start at $12 and hour. Last rental is at 5 p.m.


With nearly 10 miles of trails, Spring Lake is a favorite destination for hiking, running, biking and horseback riding. Trails include an easy paved route around the lake and connections to Trione-Annadel State Park and the city of Santa Rosa's Howarth Park. 


Campgrounds are now open. Camping reservations reopen July 2. Spring Lake's campground welcomes tent, trailer, and RV campers year-round and features several sleeping cabins.


Spring Lake's swimming lagoon is closed due to the Covid-19 health emergency.
