Cool water, a Delta breeze, and delightful scenery blend on Lake Natoma to give paddlers an experience to savor.

Lake Natoma’s 500 acres of surface water are formed by the expansion of the American River as Nimbus Dam backs up the river to slow the flows of water from Folsom Dam. The slender five-mile lake alongside the City of Folsom is a favorite of standup paddlers and kayakers. This is a quiet lake, in contrast to Folsom Lake, where waterskiing, wakeboarding and large sailboating are enjoyed.

We are located on the beach at Negro Bar Picnic Area in Folsom, CA.
