We have found our new daily walking path. Living in Galt, 13 miles north of Lodi, we travel daily to the wilderness area at Lodi Lake. It's walkways lead you through many trees, blackberries, creeks, river and wildlife, our favorite being the deer. Beautiful!

Nice park with a lake but unless you're going to spend all day there find a parking spot on the street instead of paying to enter. The place was a little dirty up front near the buildings.

If you need a place to have a picnic with family or friends, this is the place to go. They have nature trails to explore, sandy beach, bring your kayaks and enjoy waterways. Many trees for shade to stay cool,

Yes Dogs are allowed on the park on leashes. Dogs are also allowed on rental kayaks and paddleboards if you rent from the boat house. The only area they are not allowed is the Wilderness Trail, to protect the wild life.
