Bidwell-Sacramento River State Park includes five small day-use areas along rivers or creeks. The main activity to be enjoyed at the park is bank or boat fishing for salmon, steelhead and shad. The next popular activity is floating down the river on inner tubes, canoes, or kayaks. This park preserves a fine example of a disappearing natural resource - the riverine habitat. The river's various landscapes display great scenic beauty and constant change. The riparian plant and animal communities here depend strongly on each other. Massive oaks and cottonwoods give the dense shade needed for the survival of cool-water creatures. Thick understories of elderberry, wild grape, blackberry, wild rose and numerous perennials provide shelter to a diversified wildlife population. The park offers a great setting for observing and learning about the riparian community.
