The Mokelumne River Day Use Area is located 15 miles east of Lodi off Highway 12 and at the base of Camanche Dam. It is situated along a mile long stretch of the river downstream from the fish hatchery. The area is open to hiking, birding, fishing, wading, rafting and picnicking.
Take a light morning hike along the lower Mokelumne River as it spills from Camanche Dam. Birding experts Liz West and Joanne Katanic will share their knowledge about the local landscape and help you scout 35+ species including bluebirds, night herons, several woodpecker species, mergansers, Osprey and other raptors. As an added treat, keep an eye out for spawning salmon as they complete their journey from the Pacific Ocean!
