Colusa-Sacramento River State Recreation

Search Visit California

The Colusa-Sacramento River State Recreation Area has 67 acres, with 14 campsites, picnic sites, and a launch ramp for small boats. The River Patwin Indian tribe once lived nearby the area and in 1872 John Muir camped near what is now the park. River bank 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 also on a major migratory rout for birds of the Pacific flyway and provides home to an amazing number of species. The park is within walking distance to downtown Colusa.
The park is wheelchair accessible.
