The best camping near Woodson Bridge State Recreation Area guide

Overview

About

Is that a bald eagle overhead? At this gorgeous California state park, the answer is probably yes.

There aren't a ton of hiking trails in this 186-acre nature preserve, but there is a sweet beach to watch the river drift by. Listen for the call of the yellow-billed cuckoo, which nests here each summer.

There are plenty of places to launch your boat for prime water time. The fishing is great for from Spring to Fall and the climate is mild year-round.

Bring a basket—or a paper bag—or even just your hands to enjoy picking blackberries, elderberries, and wild grapes. There's a playground for smaller kids, and you can camp here with tents or with your RV of up to 31 feet. There's even one campsite that holds up to 40 people, making it ideal for your family reunion or a large group of friends.

Notable campgrounds

  • Family Campsites: Spacious sites ideal for family outings, surrounded by lush oak canopies.
  • Group Campsites: Perfect for larger gatherings, these sites offer communal space for memorable group adventures.

Tips for snagging a campsite

  • Book early, as sites can be reserved up to six months in advance, ensuring your spot amid the park's beauty.
