It's close to my house so I take my dog here all the time. It's a great place for swimming, floating, rock jumping, rafting, gold paning, picnicking, hiking or just getting outside for the day. There's a covered bridge and some historical stuff to check out as well. There's a few trails to choose from, but all end up at the same place. Overall, there's something for every level of outdoor enthusiasts...

I grew up hiking and rafting in Knights Ferry, so to say I know on the back of my hand is an understatement. The hike in Knights Ferry is very easy and short (maybe 2 miles roundtrip?), perfect for anyone of any physical shape and age. Even the raft/float down the Stanislaus is relaxing and mellow, perfect for all ages to enjoy. The best time to visit is in the spring so you can see the rolling green hills, wildflowers, and lighter crowds. The summer is the worst time to visit because the heat can be oppressive and the crowds can be awful because of the hike, rafting, and cliff jumping.

A nice place to visit water is cold as ice. Hot in the summer very cold in the winter. Picnic tables and restrooms. A little museum free of charge. There is some history there.
