Driving north from Winters to Lake Berryessa Lake Solano Park was a totally unexpected surprise.

In this area Putah Creek which comes down from Lake Berryessa flows into tiny Lake Solano, then continues on its way to Davis. This park which is run by Yolo County has a variety of recreational options. There is overnight camping, picnic tables for day use, a short hiking trail and great wildlife viewing.

Perhaps the most magnificent thing about this little park just off of State Highway 28 is its wildlife. As a narrow lake flowing off of busy Putah Creek the area is a resting place for many birds and small animals. There is a thin metal walking bridge over the lake where you can view wildlife easier. With use of my binoculars I could see a feral pig and black tail doe. Also several species of local birds including meadowlarks and ducks.

Day use is posted as $ 5 but there was no one there on this November day to collect the fee. Camping apparently is not allowed during the winter months.

Directions: 4 Miles North of Winters on State Highway 28. Turn Left at sign and park is 100 yards

Review Helpfulness: 2.5 out of 5 stars
