Description

There’s probably no more dramatic “rags to riches” story in California State Parks than that of Colusa-Sacramento River State Recreation Area, where an unsightly city dump was transformed into a beautiful area that is enjoyed by thousands of campers, picnickers, boaters and anglers each year. This area offers visitors campsites, picnic sites, and a launch ramp for small boats. Riverbank cottonwoods and willows shelter one of the finest fishing stretches in California, with king salmon, steelhead, rainbow trout and striped bass some of the catches. The river is on a major migratory route for birds of the Pacific flyway and provides home to an amazing number of species. The River Patwin Indian tribe once lived nearby the area and in 1872 John Muir camped near what is now the park. The park is near downtown Colusa, nine miles east of I-5 on Highway 20, north of Sacramento. The park is open from sunrise to sunset.
