Brannan Island California

Brannan Island California
In Southern California going to the river means the Colorado river. In northern California going to the river means the Sacramento River. Brannan Island State Recreation Area is located on the banks of the Sacramento river midway between San Francisco and Sacramento California. During the summer the campsites and river are overflowing with people eager to cool off in the Sacramento river. Popular activities are jet skiing, boating and fishing. The 100 plus campsites are just about always booked up months in advance so plan ahead if your thinking about an overnight stay. There is also a day use area with swimming beach and boat launch. Brannan Island California is within easy driving distance of both San Francisco and Sacramento and is perfect for a day trip or camping adventure. More about Brannan Island
