The Walk In Campgrounds are located on either side of the Delta Vista Berthing Area (aka. boat ramp area). The campground is close to both the water for easy access and to the restrooms/showers. Not a bad spot to bring a big group!

Every camper has their own preference in how to experience nature. For my dog Dexter and I, we appreciate more secluded trips into the woods with our packs. Leaving behind phones, cars, and convenience to rough it for days at a time. What Brannan Island does well, is create different atmospheres for different campers who want to experience their ideal outing. Essentially, the camp ground is divided in such a way that people wouldn't be bothered unnecessarily with the humming of an RV engine or a group of noisy campers if quiet and relaxation is what you are after. The walk-in camp locations are a short walk from a parking lot and situated right along the river for easy fishing access. I would highly recommend space 128.

From the walk in campgrounds, the Sac river is only a short stroll away. Enjoying the morning sunrise
