The beautiful Bidwell-Sacramento River State park is well known for its fishing—whether on the bank or by boat, salmon, steelhead, and shad are all plentiful. But there’s a wealth more to enjoy for visitors of all varieties, from a lazy downriver cruise on an inner tube (or kayak) to a short hike among the natural surroundings. With 5 different day use areas, visitors can organize their own perfect outing for a picnic, fishing, birdwatching, jet-skiing, sunbathing, or even just learning about the riverine habitat and riparian community.
