Longer stays are best done at sites 4 and 3 further from the driveway. Quick stops just to sleep are best at 1 and 2.

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.
