Welcome to...
Snug Harbor in the Sacramento River Delta

Want Waterfront? (see video)
RV sites and cottages available to rent as well as covered and open berths.  Go to reservations to see availability
Snug Harbor is one of the few truly waterfront or riverfront parks in the amazing Sacramento River Delta area of Northern California, near the smaller Delta towns of Rio Vista, Walnut Grove, Isleton, Locke, and of course, the largest city is Sacramento which is 36 miles northeast of us.  We are also a 15 minute drive from the Delta wine tasting region in Clarksburg, or 25 minutes from the Lodi wine tasting region or 60 minutes from the Napa Valley region!
     One of the unique things about this area of the Delta is that you can still ride a car ferry to and from Ryer Island.   How many Californian's can say they have driven their car on a ferry?!  Or for those who have an RV or don't want to venture onto a ferry, you can use the bridge route to Snug Harbor and Ryer Island.  SnugHarbor.pdfSnug Harbor on Steamboat Slough in the Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta

Snug Harbor named number one small park of California!

  Snug Harbor is truly Waterfront...not behind a levee, as shown from the aerial photo looking north on Steamboat Slough.

 (where is Snug Harbor Drive?)   Snug Harbor is a peninsula off Ryer Island on Steamboat Slough and there are two car ferrys and a bridge to Ryer Island.  If you haven't driven your car on a Delta ferry, it's a fun new thing to do just getting to Snug Harbor!     In All cases Please print out and use our own Delta Map as TomTom and other GPS seems to get very, ver confused in the Delta!   If you read "Yelp" you will notice a major complaint is the lack of good gps directions through the Delta.  If you want to see our response to other yelpers or cyberbullies, see yelpback.

Snug Harbor's motto: 

"There are no strangers here, only family, old friends and newly-found friends!

August 2015.  CURRENT WEATHER  is pretty awesome for water sports, but pretty hot during the day, and cools a bit in the evening due to the Delta breeze.  Note that the Real McCoy Ferry has broken down and CalTrans says they can't fix it until later in August, so plan to use the bridge route to Ryer Island to reach Snug Harbor.  J-Mac ferry is running but that ferry can not accomodate large RVs.

 For more on the drought impact  and the latest tunnel or BDCP, see our news page.
  It is a NO WAKE zone infront of the Snug Harbor peninsula though.   Delta news: there is a proposal to flood central Delta islands to create reservoirs down in the Bacon Island area...see our news page.

 Click on picture to go to video.  We made this video in 2009 to try to get viewers to understand that planning for tunnels, barriers and diverting more water to SoCal had already gone on behind closed doors-called the BDCP.  It is now 2014 and nothing has changed-the people outside the Delta want the does not really matter how the water is taken as HOW MUCH water is taken.  Right now, several North Delta waterways seem targeted for severe reduction in freshwater flow, even more than we've seen in the last few years.  Who is after the land, mineral and water rights of the Delta?  Oil and natural gas exploration companies, and developers.  But they want you and me to pay the price for their gain...For updates on what is going on go to

Above photo from this past week and below sent to us showing a huge striper caught last spring on Sacramento Deep Ship Channel at marker 56!  Those rice experiments on the Yolo Bypass aren't just fattening up the baby salmon...

2.  The CALFED-BDCP plan for the Delta and replumbing of California's water system is ongoing and could have tremendous negative impact on the Bay and Delta humans and aquatic environment.   See the News page for more info.

This summer a family stopped by with photos from the 1940-1950's at Snug Harbor and they talked about the fun times as cousins jumping from the docks and fishing for catfish with grandpa showing them how to skin the fish.  This is the place to create lifelong memories for sure!  Above is the 1950's office & store  (see more 1950's)
