Brannan Island State Recreation Area is a maze of waterways through the Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta. This park northeast of San Francisco Bay, has countless islands and marshes with many wildlife habitats and many opportunities for recreation, including boating and swimming. Very limited parking is now available to the public (Main day-use lot and Windy Cove day-use). Once the park has reached its safe parking capacity, the park will be closed to vehicle and pedestrian entry. There are a number of water hydrants throughout the park that provide potable water. The same applies if you have recently purchased a four-wheel drive that has a vehicle access permit.
Permits are not transferable and you must purchase a vehicle access permit under your own name for the vehicle. A penalty of $200 applies for entering a recreation area without a valid vehicle access permit. This amount will increase each financial year from 1 July. To avoid receiving a PIN, ensure you purchase a vehicle access permit before entering the recreation area.
Recreation programs are scheduled year round for both youth and adults. A variety of activities in instructional, competitive and social programs are organized and supervised by the Recreation Department. At Seven Mile Slough and Windy Cove, beaches are off limits to dogs. Dogs are allowed in the picnic area north of the restrooms, along Seven Mile Slough.
Visitors can choose from a scenic short walk over the pedestrian bridge or a bike ride along the more than 60 miles of multi-use trail. Display the permit on the lower left hand side of your vehicle’s windscreen prior to entering the recreation area. Applications for a vehicle access permit fee exemption must be supported by documentary evidence of the applicant’s principal place of residence and vehicle registration. Fee exemptions are not automatically renewed so residents must apply for a fee exemption each year if they hold an annual permit.
