Location Description
This facility is located at River Mile 184 - R at the southern end of the Chico Landing Subreach where County Road 32 crosses the river.
Site Description
Ord Bend Park provides the only boating access between Colusa and the Pine Creek Day Use Area of Bidwell-Sacramento River State Park.
Topology Hydrology
The park site is situated such that the boat ramp is located up a small slough adjoining the river. The site’s bank is steep on the riverside of the park and it is fenced for safety reasons.
Vegetation Wildlife
The park site is bordered by a narrow band of riparian trees and shrubs on the riverbanks. Otherwise, the site is planted with turf and trees consistent with its use as a regional/community park. Dense mixed riparian forest dominates the area across the slough from the boat ramp.
Current Land Use
Allowable uses at the park include boat launching, picnicking, and sports activities.
Adjacent Land Use
This park is bordered by farmland to the north and west. To the south is the Ord Bend Unit of the Sacramento River National Wildlife Refuge. The Reclamation Board owns the area opposite the boat ramp on the opposite side of the slough.
Access Description
This facility is easily accessed from County Road 32 and from the river.
