Welcome to Your Parks

The parks hosted by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Sacramento District are a string of lovely jewels set in the sunny valleys of California -- from Black Butte in the north to Success Lake in the south. They offer stunning visual contrast -- golden hills to deep blue waters; sites rich in California history; and natural wonders in every season.

Camping, fishing, boating, hiking, bird-watching and a thousand other special family memories await you. We proudly invite you to come and discover (or rediscover) your USACE Sacramento District Parks.
