Colusa-Sacramento River SRA

We are camped tonight at the Colusa-Sacramento River State Recreation Area, a tiny park, but with a big fancy name. We discovered this park several years ago, and have used it many times as a stop-over to and from the Bay Area. Hidden away beside the forgotten river town of Colusa, it’s about eight miles off of busy I-5, and worth every mile in terms of peace and quiet. This afternoon on our arrival we discovered a new feature, ENROUTE CAMPING.  This allows a fully contained RV to park for the night in a parking lot for a lesser fee, in this case 15 dollars, less 2 dollars for senior discount. The deal is you have to be gone by 9:00AM because it may be needed to be used as a parking lot.  This is a California Department of Parks and Recreation program and good at 17 locations.  We can’t wait to try some of the other locations at this bargain price.
