Snug Harbor in the Sacramento River Delta
3356 Snug Harbor Drive, Ryer Island off State Route 84 near Rio
Walnut Grove, California 95690
Snug Harbor is one of the few truly
waterfront or riverfront
privately-owned parks in the amazing Sacramento San Joaquin 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.
Snug Harbor is truly Waterfront...not
behind a levee, as shown from the aerial photo looking north on

(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, very confused in the Delta!

2018. April ... soooo beautiful out! But flows on
Steamboat Slough are so high that the J-Mac ferry is not running until
further notice. So use the Real McCoy ferry or plan to drive
around to the Miner's Slough bridge at the north end of Ryer Island.

Please check out a new resource for
visitors to the Delta region of California! You can use
various maps of the Delta to find your way around, since cell phone maps
tend to change or scramble Delta names and places. The
newly-revised website provides not just
driving maps but also detailed location maps to make it easy to find
local restaurants, boat launches, bait shops, shopping,
fresh produce and places to stay! Maps showing amenities for
Walnut Grove, Locke,
Isleton, Clarksburg, Courtland, West Sacramento, Old Town
Sacramento, Lodi, Stockton, Disco Bay, and Antioch are in the
development stage too.
