American Land and Leisure, a leisure management company, has worked with the agency to operate Brannan Island since 2013 but will end operations in April.

According to the opinion, he doesn’t have the resources to keep the area open and is currently looking for a new park operator.

Brannan Island, known for its waterways that traverse the Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta and its islands and marshes, is home to wildlife and offers recreational activities, such as boating and swimming. Just northeast of San Francisco Bay on Highway 160, visitors could previously make reservations at the park to camp or lodge.

If you had made a reservation at Brannan Island for after April 1, the state reservation system will contact you via email regarding refunds.

Sacramento County has other recreational areas where you can enjoy nature and the outdoors. This includes Folsom Lake State Recreation Area and Colusa-Sacramento River State Recreation Area. Before you go, be sure to research the area and check its hours of operation.
