Explore Lake Sonoma for the day or stay longer to enjoy one of the many boat-in camping sites
Located in the beautiful wine country in Sonoma County the warm weather, dog friendly attitude, and extensive trail system at Lake Sonoma gives the outdoor enthusiast a wide array of options. The protected waters make for the perfect swimming hole to enjoy with family or any size group. (up to 150 people)
Whatever you’re after, Lake Sonoma delivers.
Lake Sonoma is the perfect destination for every kind of camping enthusiast no matter what time of the year. There are roughly 100 designated boat-in campsites that all include vault toilets, a lantern holder that can double as a food hanging hook, and even your own picnic table with a view. Permits are required for boat-in camping and can be acquired at www.recreation.gov. Backpacker types will appreciate the little bit of extra weight that kayak camping provides, while other folks may want to utilize the extra space that our canoes provide.
The Yorty Creek Recreation Area launch site on Lake Sonoma provides a slightly quieter feeling then other areas of the lake because it is located in an area that has large no wake areas. We have single and double kayaks, canoes, stand up paddle boards, and inner tubes right next to the boat launch at Yorty Creek.
