DescriptionFolsom Lake State Recreation Area is a dam-formed reservoir on the American River, about 25 miles upstream from downtown Sacramento. It is a high popular area for many types of recreation, but for local climbers its draw includes a few short granite boulders, some of which are large enough to offer decent problems (mostly at Beeks Bight through the aptly-named Granite Bay entrance, other spots along the shore have been a bust so far for me). Depending on the time of year and water level, some of these may spend time under water.
Since it is a state area, there is a charge for parking, and parts of it are only open during daylight hours. Camping is available in the park. Fees and hours for different entrances may change from time to time, so the best thing to do is to check the park website.
