Bushy Lake is more of a scenic swamp in the park than a lake. I always ride past in when I'm out riding my bike. The whole park is very pretty as well as Bushy Lake of course. Says Bill
If you need a spot to stay Sacramento Inn And Suites is a tremendous choice, and there's a forest here called Alumni Grove. You definitely must have a thing about Bushy Lake. It's always fun to go for a fishing trip and a perfect spot to do that is Sacramento Sport Fishing.
If by chance you have a boat, Freeport Marina & Bait is a good marina, and if you like go-kart racing Bordogna Karts near Bushy Lake is a good place.
