Rowing on Lake Natoma
The smaller and more serene of Folsom’s two lakes, Lake Natoma is a favorite spot for passive water sport enthusiasts. The lake is especially attractive for sailing, kayaking, rowing and swimming as it has a 5 mph speed limit for all motorized watercraft. But don’t let all that calm recreation fool you, the action heats up at the California State University Sacramento Aquatic Center, where extreme rowing speed is the goal as college rowing crew boats skim across the lake in heated competition. Lake Natoma is known world-wide for its outstanding rowing course and hosts many national and international competitions.
Boat rentals such as kayaks are available on Lake Natoma at Negro Bar and also at Willow Creek access points. Look here for more information.
