Delta Recreation Studies & maps Delta Politics in 2012:  Transportation in the Delta is changing and outside agencies have been making plans for years now that are just coming to light in the Delta.  To better understand the changes, you might want to note the History of Delta travel-waterway names.

Click on the map below to see larger version and the reference link.  It is interesting to note the "major recreation areas" of the Delta according to DWR in 2010.  What about the Delta Sceenic Loop marinas?  What about all the Bethel Island marinas?  What about the very popular Steamboat Slough gunkhole areas to the north and Snug Harbor to the south?  What about Delta Marina in Rio Vista?
the above map came from:

1959 Legal Delta boundaries determined, including upland and lowland zones, based on 5' contour line.  60,000 acres of waterways, 57,238 navigable acres, 635 linear miles of navigable channels

Recreation in the Delta Is just awesome for people who like to boat, fish, hike, ride bikes or just relax in a rural setting, especially in the North Delta region.  Maps below can be clicked on to see larger versions of each area.   Or go to Page 2 of Recreation-Transportation to see more maps from past documents and studies on this topic.

The Delta has over 1000 miles of shoreline just perfect for family recreation like boating, fishing, swimming and camping.  Most of the articles in the last few years only talk about the water, the levees, the battle over water rights and protecting fish from excess water exports.  What seems to be forgotten are the hundreds of thousands of people who annually enjoy the Delta for family vacations, week end fishing outings, and peaceful driving day trips right in the backyard of both Sacramento and San Francisco Bay.  To get a sense of the number of marina and recreation facilities, please click on Delta region names as proposed by the Delta Protection Commission and other "Delta Vision" groups.  You will see an incomplete list of marina and recreational facilities.  The maps come from Delta Protection Commission and California Dept of Boating and Waterways.  See also Popular Delta Waterways map
