Ten miles south of the town of Dunsmuir off of Interstate 5.
The site provides swimming and fishing access to the Sacramento River easily found from the road. Small undeveloped trail passes the railroad tracks and leads to the river. Take caution while crossing the tracks. The water flows at a nice pace and there are many rock formations as well as an island in the middle of the river. There are no shallow wading areas for children. The area is private land but the site is a known river access spot and is sponsored by the Cantara Trustee Council as well as the United States Forest Service.
Upper Sacramento River
Mixed forest with conifer and alder trees as well as willow shrubs. Rainbow trout are the predominant species of fish but there are some brown trout as well.
