Sacramento River

Sacramento / Rivers

The Sacramento River is the longest river in California, flowing 400 miles throughout Northern California. Rising in the Klamath Mountains and ending in the Sacramento-San Joaquin River Delta and San Francisco Bay, the river is rooted in American history as gold was discovered along its tributaries sparking the California Gold Rush. The Sacramento River is also well-known for its population of Chinook salmon. Activities on and along the river include rafting, boating, cruise ship tours, camping, fishing, and swimming. In the Yuba Sutter region, a boat launch, marina and other amenities can be found at Lovey’s Landing in Meridian.
