This is a great place to take the grandkids to swim, they have a nice area for swimming and picnic area. Its very clean and the staff seems to care about their visitors. We are going to camp here this coming summer as it appears to be safe and a fun place to camp.

This has the biggest, cleanest, easiest to access boat launch in the Delta. You do pay a few bucks more than the other launches but being sheltered from the wind and large waves of other launches makes it worth the premium. Also, lots of clean bathrooms, which is always a plus. It's my go to launch for any season.

Camp, swim, bike, walk, boat in this wonderful dog and kid friendly campground. A really diverse community of people using the facilities, and there is a wonderful swimming area in the river, cordoned off from boat traffic. It is close to the Bay Area (about 1.5-2 hours) depending on traffic but you feel like you're on vacation. Most campsites don't... More

We love to bring the kids for the weekends. During warmer weather, there's a nice place for the kids to swim.Plenty of BBQ sites. Great place for a family reunion. RV campsites offer water and electric hook ups (no sewer hook up though). It's close to home and reasonably priced.

They have excellent boat ramps here located in the heart of the Delta. If you've already boat an annual State pass, the cost is free.

This little gem of a park is located near the Sacramento River, and along 3 Mile Slough. We camped 2 nights in space #87. It is well kept, and has water near the campsites. They also have sites with full hookups near the boat launch ramp. They are quite small, however. The site we were on was very large, suitable... More

This park has had some budget issues in the past so make sure it's open, but it was last week. It has a good campground but is easy to launch your boat and is right off the Sacramento River.
