I wish there was an area with cement at the edge of the lake just to get wet splash like in Mickey Grove. It gets muddy and I don't like when the water is not clear. I know it is supposed to be like nature but also it can be improve for a daily wonderful experience close to nature and refreshing on hot days...
We had my sister's Celebration of Life at Lodi Lake. I believe it was the closure both friends and family needed. Many of her dearest friends showed up. I know Cindy was looking down from heaven and knowing just how many people really cared and loved her. Thanks to all that came out. I love you all!
This is a good hike for beginners and children especially. There are always deer every time I go there about 13 of them to be exact. I like the water front as well, it's beautiful.
Awesome place to do paddle boarding. Water is calm. N if u go during the Wk less crowded. N the wild life is a good site to see.
Nice place to take the kids! Clean and beautiful. The splash pad was an added bonus! Packing up and leaving for the 30 minutes was a slight inconvenience. The only thing I didn't like was all the people drinking alcoholic beverages out in the open even after staff made announcement of no alcohol on premise. I know it's difficult to watch everyone, but several people walked around openly with tall cans. The young kids running the place did the best they could, and they were all friendly and fantastic, however, perhaps an older adult presence could be helpful and might be taken more serious, as some patrons were not willing to listen to them. Would definitely take the family out again
The lake is always nice! Well maintained grounds and waterfront. The river channel could be cleared out a bit so boats/jet skis aren't dragging the scum and weeds so easily. I always enjoy my time out there and have lots of fun!
I checked out this place today. The lake was so calm. Plenty of picnic tables, benches, boat dock, kayak rentals, and a pool. Check their site for pool schedule, gazebo reservations for big groups, and more info.
I absolutely love Lodi Lake! Kayaking up the river is my favorite! I take my dog. We paddle, we play ball, we paddle some more. My family takes their dogs many days a week. It would be nice if there were bathrooms over by the off leash dog area, and maybe a couple benches. We're excited that they're mowing the large field where the dogs run. It's so nice to walk out there!
Enjoyed the picnic, and BBQ area near the lake. Went for a wedding reception, and had a good time dispite a little rain. Thankfully the tables were covered in our area Electrical outlet was also available for music.
Morning trips here are the best for sunrise times. Not crowded and there is alot of parking. Later on, it is pretty busy. Great place for relaxing kayak trips up the river and watching turtles, ducks and geese. Lots of fish jumping too! Nice, flat hiking trails too.
I love Lodi Lake and the Wilderness Trail. $5.00 entrance fee if you don't live in Lodi. A place to see Nature and experience the Fall Foliage. We took our Pumpkin Head Photos out here and Family Photos. My grandchildren love to see the Deer and look for painted rocks. We took our photos on the trail.
I found a spot away from everyone; it was so nice music playing. I made a cold vegan cheese and turkey sandwich. it reminded me of having a picnic when I was younger and bought back some great times.
My fiancee and I just took our engagement photos here. Great place for it too. Tons of different spots for great pictures. I could see from others that it's a fun fishing spot and great place for walks and bike riding. Well kept but that's kind of expected with a parking fee. $5 a car is worth it though. Will be back for picnic or something for sure.
Beautiful lake in the middle of town. Fishing, boating, park for kids, awesome nature walk with interesting facts throughout about the natural trees and foliage. Includes a small redwood grove that was donated to the park which I thought was awesome.
Such a nice place for a walk--either with your family or just alone. The nature walk is very nice. Well kept park.
My family and I love to walk here and see the families of deer roaming in the forest. Serene, colorful, and absolutely beautiful setting. You can even see some beautiful views of nearby wineries from the riverbank
It's a nice e place. The park portion in the front is typically busy. You can rent kayaks at the Boat House that's run by Headwaters kayak shop. The nature area is okay, nice place to walk and no homeless seen which is an added plus compared to the American River Trail in Sacramento.
Went to a memorial at the Youth Activity Area by boat launch. Wasn't even aware this place was there. Definitely a hidden gem that's available to rent. There was a large wooden gazebo style covered area with i think 8(poss.12) picnic tables underneath. Large enough to keep us all dry during the occasional shower. There was even a nice cooking area with built-in charcoal grill & large stainless steel table. Even a grassy area for kids to play. Would be perfect for any gathering of friends or family.
Great place to take a walk and ride bikes. July 4th, usually there are fire works at night for the community. You can also go fishing here but I've never tried it.
Absolutely it is mind refreshing recreation place. I have been there with family and we enjoyed lots. We are passing through COVID 19 depressing time, visiting such a place is remedy. Blesses...
Lodi is the only place to access river these days it is and always has been a great place for all kinds of water activity. Green grass .old trees for shade . access to the river .personel are great .ONLY ONE PROBLEM THE PARKING LOTS AND ROADWAY SUCK SO ROUGH THEY BEAT THE HELL OUT OF TOUR CAR OR TRUCKS SUSPENSION. It needs Repaved badly .its even hard for foot traffic the uneven parts at least .my opinion.
Some advice to money collectors at front entrance; when processing $13 launch fee from customers it would be extremely helpful and most appreciated to know that the bathrooms back at boat launch area are closed. This would save an unnecessary trip towing the boat back through the narrow road of the park to use bathroom at the front entrance that we had already passed on the way back to the boat launch
Love Lodi Lake!! Such a great spot to spend the day with the family or even to take a walk alone. Tons of kayakers, boaters, and fisherman. Feels like one big Lodi family while you're out there!
Lodi Lake is the gem of the community. Well maintained. Lots of picnic space, swimming beach area, boat ramp for small craft, Mokelumne River on its northern edge. A kayaker's paradise.
Beautiful! Nice, exciting, relaxing walk on one of the many trails. My Grandbabies loved it! Can't wait to go again.
Not as crowded as I thought it would be. Plenty of shade. Wish they had a concession stand
Absolutely gorgeous with a ton of things to do (ie: beach area, little trails, boat launch, etc.). Would definitely recommend for getting a bit of fresh air! Just make sure you watch out for any wildlife of course. I often saw deer, squirrels (tons of them!), and even little snakes (they're harmless but of course don't agitate them). As you walk along the path you'll even find bits of information about some of the critters living there like frogs or what type of plants are there!
This is a great spot to enjoy kayaking on smooth water. Lots of spots to search for turtles and fish- just enjoy from a distance!
We had so much fun here! It was beautiful! We rented a kayak and made a fun trip around the lake! My girls had a blast!
Superb nice peaceful area at times busy but mostly perfect. Extra clean nice folks lot of kyacks beautiful area extreamly enjoyable
My favorite part is the nature trail. It very shady there's a short way or the long way around by the river. There are squirrels, dear, and small red fox. Plenty of water to jet ski, canoe, float , swim. Nice grass area tables benches bathrooms. Playground for kid when there's not covid-19 restrictions.
Cool lake with a boat launch for private boats and rental launch. Nice river areas to explore.
Great city park that's really kind of a bend in the Mokelumne River. Trails wind around much of the lake. Several places to put in kayaks. Headwaters Kayaks runs a boat house where you can rent kayaks. News Flash! Headwaters Kayaks is closing the boathouse business as of Fall, 2020, so unless someone else uses that facility to rent kayaks, there will be no rentals available. Lots of wild life to observe. Birds (great blue herons, snowy egrets, lots of ducks and geese), turtles, even an occasional river otter. Easy to get away from it all with little paddling effort. Picnic tables, swimming Beach and other more civilized entertainments are also available. $3 daily admission for residents; $5 for non-resident.
Toilet facilities out if order but still charged regular gate fee and didn't disclose to us coming in.
I like the place overall but my hubby did not like the fishing did not catch anything all day but it's pretty big and has parking pretty close to the water
Very beautiful lake to meditation BBQ drink some cold beers kayak boating relax enjoy the walk 3.2 miles on the route peacfull environment
A really nice place to go and have a picnic it is also dog friendly! I had a picnic with my family and dogs and we had a really great time. If you bring your dogs remember to clean up after them they do not provide bags so you would have to bring them yourself.
This is a great community park. Fun things for everyone. Some facilities are closed right now, but picnic areas, nature trail and water access is open. The lake is perfect for stand up paddle boards and kayaks. Clean restrooms and plenty of parking. There is a small access fee.
Even with it being winter right now, this is a great place to go take a walk and still have a scenic place to enjoy. There are trails you can walk, not just next to the water, and your family can enjoy fresh air while enjoying the views. This is also a great place to take pictures if you want that scenic view to give a great background.
Really enjoyed Lodi Lake. Lots of tables and benches around the park. Nice walking paths and grass areas. Different parking areas. Can't wait to go kayaking here! Great place to take beautiful pictures.
This is a nice little place to escape to nature without having to leave the city. There are very easy paths and a variety of small wildlife here. There are some nice viewpoints and its great for families.
Great local place for a day trip. I personally love bringing my kayak here for a paddle, and the kayak launch makes it extremely easy. Tons of other activities available such as hiking, playgrounds, fishing, etc. I'd give it 5 stars but it can get packed sometimes. But it's extremely clean and safe!
Life is about the little things for AnG. And lunch at a picnic table and a nature trail walk fits the bill. Lodi Lake provides that simple pleasure for us. It was nice just holding hands and enjoying a mile stroll after a simple lunch at the many picnic tables. Its simple, clean and an affordable way to spend an hour or so with your loved ones.
It's nice. There are bathrooms, a play area, benches to eat lunch. I'm sure in the summer it's pretty busy. There's also a very nice nature walk trail that looks like it's a little bit of a walk. If you need some peace and get away from the world for a bit,, this walk is beautiful. I'd go back.
Lived in Lodi 40 years ago, visit friends there when we travel out west. Very nice town the park is great. There is a restored down town area that is worth a visit, as well as another very cool park, between Lodi and Stockton off Hwy 99, called Mikygrove. Park bring a picnic and spend the day. Much to see and do.
Such a nice, clean park! Try views are amazing and the trail is short and sweet with random sightings of beautiful Deer. Just didn't like that no one wore masks. Other than that, it's a wonderful park.
This is a great family destination. Dogs are allowed on a leash. There are lots of places to hang out, picnic, or walk. In the summer part of the lake is open for swimming. The is an admission charge per car. Swimming is extra. It is for day use only.
Great place to picnic, get some fresh air, and hang out by the beautiful lake. Love taking hikes around the lake and into the wildlife preserve. The beach area has a small entrance free but it's well worth it. Lots of street parking, and paid parking if you'd like to park in the park.
Great place for a fun relaxing family day! Kayaking down the river and around the lake was lots of fun. You can rent kayaks and paddle boards there if you don't have your own.
Such a nice, clean park! The views are amazing and the trail is short and sweet with random sightings of beautiful Deer. Just didn't like that no one wore masks and that there were no staff watching and making sure people were not swimming! . Other than that, it's a wonderful park.
The park is really nice but they are a bit contradictory. They say they allow pets but not in the beach section. I wish it would have been made clear on their website before bringing our 4 month old husky puppy who is very child friendly along with our 3 year old daughter who really wanted to swim with her puppy. The rest of the park looks very nice and they have a good kids play section/pool.
Great place to bring family, remote control cars,remote boats, bikes and etc. You can bring water craft too for a fee. They have water rentals, restrooms, shade, BBQ pits, playground, walking trails, kiddie beach (covid closed) and lots of parking that can fill up. It's less than 6.00 fee per vehicle to drive in unless you prefer to park in the surrounding area and walk or ride in. Vessels are subject to a fee. If you hungry and burger and shake stand across the street is delicious or bring your own food/drink.
Traveling from the East Bay home my family including a toddler and a preteen we stopped at this beautiful park to stretch our legs. I was more then excited to see that kayaks were out one the lake as we as paddle boarders. There was a great playground for all children's ages; plenty of shade, benches/tables. Most wonderful of all, the bathrooms were open and very clean. We got to feed the geese that came right to us. I can't wait to go back and will make a special trip just to visit the park again.
Beautiful little serene lake. Took my paddle board out there and just hung out in one of the many little shady spots! If you want a relaxing yet fun outdoor activity, would recommend!
Great time kayaking around Lake and River trails. Love their excellent prices (tandem price per kayak, not per participant!). Great time with all 3 of us (Dad, Mom, Dog)
Beautiful place, only one thing didn't like it. You pay $5 bucks for parking and $3 dollars per person if you want to stay by the sand location. Also, I saw that they don't clean after dogs and also if you don't park well, or pay attention where you park you can get a ticket, so the police is not there for you to take care, instead to put a fine other than that it was awesome!
I like to go in the early morning, that's when it's least busy and I can enjoy the peacefulness and tune into a bit of nature. It's def relaxing at that time of day there. There is a nice play ground area for the kiddies & the fur-babies are welcome if leashed. It's also a really nice place for an any day family picnic or get together ...but at peak times it can become VERY busy. Bathroom facilities are on site & there is ample parking.
I absolutely Lodi Lake! Kayaking up the river is my favorite! I take my dog. We paddle, we play ball, we paddle some more. My family takes their dogs many days a week. It would be nice if there were bathrooms over by the off leash dog area, and maybe a couple benches. We're excited that they're mowing the large field where the dogs run. It's so nice to walk out there!
