I loved living out here. The river access is great and is a great spot to float the Sacramento river from. You can float all the way to Red Bluff park. Great scenery and great summer fun!

Red Bluff, I-5, exit on Jelly"s Fairy. Approx. 1.5 miles, turn right at the Bend Store. The boat launch is on the left just after crossing the river.
