Sly Park Recreation Area - An Hour From Home

By
Real Estate Agent with GreatWest Realty DRE# 00827565

Approximately 60 miles east of Sacramento, Sly Park Recreation area exists.  During most months of the year it is enjoyed by visitors from the Greater Sacramento region and other places as well.

Yesterday, I rode past here on my way with other family members who wished to do a little fishing on lakes along highway 88.  We paused a few moments to take in the view and to snap a couple pictures.  I immediately thought of the Dick Greenberg Contest, and the category of Travel/Places.

Sly Park Recreation Area is an EID (El Dorado Irrigation District) asset, which has among its jewels, lakes, campsites, hiking trails, boating, fishing, picnic facilities, available to the public.

A wonderful place to bring the family to create memorable camping experiences.  The park features 8 family campgrounds, which contain a total of 191 campsites, each with picnic table, fire ring and barbecue.  

For more information about EID facilities click on the EID Recreation website.

Myrl I've never heard of Sly Park - what a gorgeous area. And it's great to have it so close to Sacramento for an easy day trip in nature.

Hi Myrl Jeffcoat ,

A great shot and wonderful entry for the category. 

This area looks so peaceful and tranquil. I could just see sitting there watching the sun set on this location. As a former Californian, I always look at the shoreline to see how much water is in the lake...especially this time of year. I am so pleased to see a high water line!

Ha, Anna Banana Kruchten,CRS,CRB,GRI I live in Sacramento, and I had never heard of Sly Park until Myrl mentioned it. But you know, she knows all of the great places to go fishing. Which reminds me, I need to get a fishing license, nah, the year is almost over, who am I kidding, unless I go with Myrl, I have nobody to go fishing with.

Hi Myrl -- idyllic - serene - beautiful in its simplicity.

Thank you for sharing your photos and the story behind them...isn't it amazing to "find" such worthy destinations so close to our homes.   Incredible yet so within our reach too.

It reminds me a little bit of hiking in Colorado which we have neglected for the last two years.
