Tsali Recreation Area

Tsali Recreation Area

The Tsali (pronounced ” SAH-lee ” ) Recreation Area’s four-loop trail system has  become a popular destination for mountain bikers and horseback riders. It’s best known as a challenging mountain bike course. Hikers may travel the trails on any day, but mountain bikers and equestrians-the primary users- are kept separated by alternating days  on the trails. Enjoy mountain biking, horseback riding, fishing, motorized boating, kayaking or camping at Tsali Recreation Area, all located within steps of Fontana Lake.

The Tsali Campground is open early April through October and offers 40 campsites. Each campsite has a picnic table, fire ring, and lantern post. Accessible flush toilets, hot showers and drinking water are available.
