Snug Harbor in the Sacramento River Delta
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.
Snug Harbor is truly Waterfront...not

(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.

CALTRANS has been distributing showing Miners Slough Bridge as currently
closed, in reality the bridge IS currently in use and open.
Subsequent notice from Caltrans emailed to locals says the
bridge will be closed for repairs

Larger RVs will not be able to use the ferries to Ryer Island so those
customers have been contacted to let them know the reservation has to be
cancelled due to CalTrans actions.

Yes, there is lots of water in the Delta. Snug
Harbor is located on a river called Steamboat Slough, which is a
tributary of the Sacramento River, just northeast of Rio Vista.
The plans you hear about in the news is for the FUTURE. 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!
