The San Joaquin River Gorge
The San Joaquin River Gorge is open to the public year-round. The fall and winter is a great time to visit as the cooler temperatures can offer a more enjoyable experience. The Gorge is managed by the Bureau of Land Management and offers fishing, camping, swimming, nature study, horseback riding, hiking and mountain biking trails. Permits are required for large group camping, but at this time there’s no fee for the individual camp sites. There are also corrals available for horses, but they are popular so call ahead to the BLM to reserve them. Other popular activities sponsored by BLM include guided nature walks, simulated archaeological digs, Native American basketry and acorn processing, gold rush and geology programs. Call the Gorge BLM office for more info on these at (559) 855-3492 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
