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 at the end of the park's Newanga Avenue entrance. Kayak and paddleboard rentals are available in the summer. The rental office is next to the swimming lagoon via the park's Violetti Road entrance.


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 features a summer swimming lagoon that includes areas for recreational swimming. The lagoon is open daily beginning July 1 with swimming hours from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. Admission is free. The lagoon is filtered, chlorinated and tested regularly to ensure it exceeds water-quality standards. The lagoon also features a sandy beach, lawns shaded by redwoods, picnic sites and a seasonal cafe.
