Spring Lake Regional Park is a 320-acre area which offers visitors a variety of outdoor activities and adventures surrounded by beautiful natural landscapes. The park is crisscrossed by a network of paths and trails for walking, hiking, mountain biking and horseback riding. There is a three-acre lagoon for swimming in the summer months, as well as a 72-acre lake for fishing, boating and other water sports, such as kayaking, paddle boarding, and windsurfing.
The lakes are fringed by sandy beaches, lawns with picnic sites and ancient redwood trees. The park is home to a campground with over 30 sites, 200 lovely picnic areas with tables, seating and grills for barbecues, and a modern Environmental Discovery Center, where visitors can learn more about the park, what is has to offer and the natural landscape. Have a meal at the new Lakeside Grill at the swimming lagoon, which serves a seasonal cook-to-order menu, as well as beer and wine.
