This is a nice weekend camping spot at least during the off season. I have not been there during the peak season which by others reviews can be hit and miss. Keep in mind this is a spot that locals use for camping. Thus there will be a wide range of people present. Our weekend had one nearby loud past... More

Camped here in space 64 this past weekend. Campsite was huge with our neighbors being a good distance away. Campground was very quiet. Staff were great. The only complaints were about the bathrooms and showers. The showers were ice cold and filthy. The bathrooms were overrun with pincher bugs and I don't think they were cleaned while we were there.... More

This is a nice state park with a boat launch area. Also a little swimming area and flat places to camp or set up your RV.

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.
