General Information

Description - In spite of its name, Hogback Island Access does not have any piggy denizens. Rather, this Delta facility is for people who enjoy fishing, recreational boating, rowing, picnics and barbecues. The expansive parking lot and grassy picnic area slopes down to a handsome lagoon with a dock and two-lane boat launch. This Delta park caters to many types of park visitors and is especially popular in the summer and early fall.

Attractions - Water recreation opportunities center around Hogback's easy access to the Sacramento River. A choice Delta site for launching your boat, eating your lunch, or setting adrift in your personal watercraft, Hogback is easy to find and easier to enjoy.

Fishing is also a popular activity at Hogback. Test your luck among the Delta riffles.

The park is open year-round from sunrise to sunset. Parking fees are collected 365 days a year, even on special event days and on weekends. Self-payment is required if no fee collector is present.

Recreation - People come to Hogback Island to launch their boat, dine outdoors, and try their luck fishing.

Climate - A generally warm, dry climate prevails in the Central Valley; it is hot in the summer, mild in the winter. Precipitation in the region falls mainly from October through April. Winter temperatures tip well below freezing producing frost, however, snow is very rare. Summer temperatures above 100 degrees F are part of the normal pattern.

Location - Take Interstate 5 to Twin Cities Road. Head west on Twin Cities, then left on River Road. In Walnut Grove, cross the bridge and turn left on Highway 160. In the town of Ryde, go west on Highway 220, then turn left on Grand Island Road. The access is then found after a short drive along the levee.
