Great site to camp and fish with the whole family! Not far from Yosemite or civilization!
I grew up coming here & to many places like it in the central valley. Beautiful vineyards & farms all around!

First to Review

The river here is really beautiful and this is a really popular area for tubing and floating. However, the popularity has resulted in a disgusting amount of littering, and the banks and trails near the river are often covered in garbage. I honestly have never seen anything like it in any other American park. Maybe it's because most of the activities that go on here are accompanied by lots of beers, but it's pretty shameful.
