Tide Predictions for Boat Launching
|Sandy Beach County Park is located on the Sacramento River just south of Rio Vista. Open year-round, the park offers a 24-hour boat launch, campsites, picnic grounds, and a sandy beach (swimming is not allowed due to strong currents and sudden drop offs, no lifeguard on duty). |
For camping reservations, click here: ONLINE PARK RESERVATIONS. The campground includes picnic tables, barbecue pits, hot showers, flush toilets and RV dump station. Each of the 42 individual campsites is fully equipped with hook-ups for electricity and water. A camp host and a resident Ranger are on site to assist you so that your visit is enjoyable. Firewood is available. Dogs on leash are welcome in the campground (only). Dogs are not allowed in the day use area (picnic area and beach).
Overlooking the Sacramento River, the picnic area is equipped with tables, barbecue grills, sand volleyball court and a horseshoe pitch. Visitors enjoy playing along the beach and viewing the Delta. Picnic tables are first-come / first-served.
Whether from the shoreline or off the side of a boat, fishing for catfish, sturgeon or striped bass is very popular along 1,000 miles of Delta waterways.
Other recreational activities enjoyed at the park are jet-skiing, pleasure boating, wind surfing, sailing and sunbathing on the beach.
Visitors enjoy the small-town atmosphere of Rio Vista, and there are many stores, shops and fine restaurants in the area for your enjoyment.
