Let us paint you a picture: It’s 90 degrees and you’re sweating. You desperately need to cool off but you’re too far away from the beach. Where can you go to escape the sweltering dry heat of the Central Valley? Well folks, sweat not! We have your answer right here: McConnell State Recreation Area. A shaded campground with a wooded hiking trail right alongside the Merced River, McConnell will shield you from the sun and let you chill out in a friendly, flowing river. Bring a canoe or floating tube. Bring your fishing poles. Stock your cooler full of tasty treats and cook ‘em up on the provided hibachi grills. McConnell is the perfect oasis for river hang out time. So head out there, cool off, and chill out. Really, we’re concerned about you.
