This is a GREAT place for kids and pets. We love to walk and climb around on the rocks by the river, make the hike up the big hill, or just relax beside the river by the picnic area. After a great day of recreation, we stop by the ice cream shop in Knights Ferry for a wonderful treat. This is our favorite place to spend a nice sunny day.
Stop in at the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Information Center for information andmaps on where to camp and fish on the Stan. Cast for big rainbow trout in the rapids, riffles, and deep pools between Goodwin Dam and Oakdale. Try for bass and catfish below Orange Blossom Bridge. Rabid river rafters put in above Knights Ferry for 4 miles of surging whitewater. Canoes and lighter-weight craft should stick to the river below Knights Ferry.The 355-foot-long covered bridge is the longest west of the Mississippi, crossingthe river near an old gristmill.
Closed to vehicles, this is a scenic spot for photos. The park here has pretty picnic areas with barbecues. At the northeast end of the bridge, a hiking trail leads to sandy beaches and to swimming and fishing holes.
