“Play and stay at close-in Rancho Seco”

Rancho Seco Recreational Park is a recreational area located in the California Central Valley near the Rancho Seco Nuclear Generating Station in Herald, California. It is open to the public for camping, fishing, hiking and water activities. Boats are restricted to outboard electric motors which improves the lake's use as a swimming hole. The lake is fed by the Folsom South Canal. The area surrounding the park was operated by Sacramento County. In the early 1970s, the lake was established to act as a backup water supply in case of a fire emergency at the nearby nuclear plant. In 1992, Sacramento Municipal Utility District (SMUD) took over responsibility for operating the park. In 1993, they began holding a trout fishing competition. The 7 miles (11 km) Howard Ranch Trail and a 75 acres (0.117 sq mi; 0.30 km2) nature preserve were added to the park in 2006.
