This campground is located right near the Sacramento River with a little under 40 accessible sites. Due to its fairly unknown nature, the campground generally does not fill up completely, and its year-round availability offers a great getaway along the river. Reservations are necessary during the summer months, but you should be fine heading through to the campground with no problems at other points in the year. Normal amenities are included (showers, restrooms, picnic areas), as well as a very friendly ranger staff.

A small campground right on the Sacramento River.

I stayed here in winter, and it was tule fog and quite chilly, as is common in the Sacramento Valley in winter. Only a couple of other campers, and unfortunately the showers and restrooms were dirty and disrepair, as is typical of CA state parks these days.

The big attraction hereabouts is the biggest wildlife display in California, and one of the very biggest in the West. Amazing how people head to Yosemite to see hardly any critters when just off Interstate 5 is the best display around. That is, the winter birds in the Sacramento Valley refuge network. Check out the main unit just south at Road 68. Auto tour, nature trail, etc.

Great jumping off point for the Corning and Chico areas. Great access to fishing on the Sacramento River with trail access and boat ramp close by. Bait shops available within walking distance. Short drive to olive tasting in Corning, wine tasting near Vina or a day trip to Chico.

Campground is clean with beautiful surroundings. Been here twice and have never had a problem getting a site. $31 a night is bit steep which might be why. But for this area it's the best place to camp. Spaces for RVs and tents. Coin showers, bathrooms, potable water, picnic benches and fire pits. No RV hookups.
