General Information

Description - Lake Red Bluff Recreations Area is located east of the city of Red Bluff in the Sacramento Valley. The Forest service is improving the riparian- or bankside- environment with native plants.

Attractions -

Located in the same area are Camp Discovery, Sycamore Campground and the Lake Red Bluff picnic ground. This area has a major boat launch and a 3.5 mile handicap accessible trail.

Recreation - The Area provides camping, hiking, picnicking, boating, water-skiing and other recreational facilities along a lake created by a diversion dam on the upper Sacramento River.

Climate - The climate on the Mendocino is greatly influenced by elevation. As throughout California, most of the precipitation comes between November and April. This comes in the form of rain at the lower elevations and some wet, heavy snow in the higher elevations. April through October are normally dry, with warm to hot temperatures at the low elevations and moderate temperatures in the higher elevations.

Location - From Red Bluffs travel I-5 and go east on State Hwy. #36 to the first turnoff (about 100 yards) which is Sale Lane. Turn south and travel to end of road (.5 miles) to the picnic ground. Although Lake Red Bluffs Recreation Area is operated by the forest service, it is located east of Mendocino National Forest.
