  • Wonderful Park with numerous hiking and swimming opportunities. The river here is sublime and many come to visit, but if you plan accordingly you can find your own slice of heaven along the shore for a picnic and swim.
  • I happened to go during construction so there was a lot of traffic. Nice little spot to swim, and a few good hiking trails though!
  • This place sucks! Never go there. Water is filthy and the parking is atrocious. Just kidding i love it here but please dont go i dont want it to get too busy lol
  • Harrowing drive to the parking lot, and then you're at the most beautiful Yuba River. Sit on the rocks and jump in!
  • Great park with many trails to explore. The bridge and historic building are nice to explore as well. Parking is difficult unless you want to pay to park.
