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. Boat rentals - kayaks, paddleboards, pedal boats and canoes - are available via the park's Violetti Road entrance daily in the summer and weekends only in September.  


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. 


Spring Lake's campground welcomes tent, trailer, and RV campers year-round and features several sleeping cabins.


Spring Lake's swimming lagoon is open daily from Memorial Day weekend through Labor Day and features a floating, inflatable water park as well as areas for recreational swimming and sunbathing.
