Fun place for hiking. It's adjacent to Daley Ranch which is a protected wildlife corridor with numerous hiking/bike trails.

Day use for picnic, feed the ducks, fish and relax. Cabana with electricity for rent. Lots of camp sites even for large groups.

Not only does Dixon Lake have boats and water bikes you can rent but there is also a hike you can do close by. I could easily spend my whole day here

Won't going to Dixon lake is pretty cool even though it is a man-made lake boat rentals local fishing licenses available fishing there's OK for freshwater saltwater guy personally but there's lots of trails to hike you cannot camp he may be able to camp around the lake I'm not 100% sure but the good mountain bike area trails miles and miles and miles of trails lots to see lots to do take plenty of water lots of fun

Dixon Lake was a very good choice for a stay cation. tent camping by a lake! Doesn't get much better than that. The campgrounds were plentiful, very clean & private with beautiful views. It got pretty chilly at night. If you're looking for something more rural then you might want to try somewhere else. This place is barely on the outskirts of the city. I would return!
