Cache Creek Regional Park
Special to the Express
Cache Creek Canyon Regional Park reopened all of its 45 campground sites and four group sites as of Friday, April 1.
Cache Creek Canyon Regional Park is located approximately six miles north of the town of Rumsey along State Highway 16, providing over 600 acres of natural wilderness. The Regional Park is divided into three use areas: the Cache Creek Upper Park Site, the Cache Creek Middle Campground Park Site, and the Cache Creek Lower Park Site.
The three park use areas offer a range of activities such as white water rafting, rural hiking, kayaking, fishing, and nature walks.
Back in April 2020, when the Yolo County Shelter in Place Order came out, all Yolo county parks closed. Despite parks reopening in May 2020, Cache Creek Campground remained closed. With high restrictions, the campground reopened some of its sites in late June 2020.
In August 2020, the campground had to, once again, fully shut down due to the LNU fires. It remained closed until late September 2020, but then closed for the season only a few days later.
For the 2021 camping season, Cache Creek Campground opened its doors, but once again with limited sites, no group sites and high restrictions.
Earlier this month, Yolo County Supervisor Angel Barajas, residents and county staff helped open the doors to the 2022 camping season that will be open from April 1 to Oct. 10 with no restrictions.
Campers are encouraged to secure a reservation at http://camping.yolocounty.org.
