Folsom Lake


Folsom Lake is nestled in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada mountain range in El Dorado, Placer, and Sacramento Counties about 25 miles northeast of Sacramento in the Central Valley of California. Folsom Lake covers 1,500 acres with 75 miles of shoreline and a maximum depth of 250 feet when it is full. The United States Bureau of Reclamation manages the Folsom Project, which includes the Nimbus afterbay reservoir and dam facilities two miles southwest of Folsom Lake, which provides flood control, hydroelectricity, drinking water, and irrigation.  More Lake Information
