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 route for birds of the Pacific flyway and provides home to an amazing number of species. The park is within walking distance of downtown Colusa.

Check the State Parks website for additional information on the weather, suggested day hikes, or to see the park brochure, campground map, park photos, video, and more. Information available will vary from park to park.Click here
