Come discover the many faces of the South Yuba River. Wander through the history of Bridgeport's covered bridge and wagons, pan for a golden treasure, escape to a hidden swimming hole, roam trails surrounded by wildflowers, and so much more.
Tucked away in scenic and historic Nevada County, South Yuba River State Park has a little something for everybody. The patchwork park boundaries form a “string of pearls” for 20 miles along the river, including four historic bridges, miles of hiking trails, and the nation’s only wheelchair-accessible wilderness trail, the Independence Trail. The river’s beauty and solitude has long inspired the dedication and stewardship of those who know it best. Come experience your state park, and let the river work its magic on you.
Fall Festival is October 27.

Save Our Bridge Committee Forming
With the SYRPA Save Our Bridge (S.O.B.) Campaign underway to repair, restore and reopen the Covered Bridge at Bridgeport, a committee is working to spearhead this effort. The committee includes South Yuba River State Park Association (SYRPA) members led by President Dave Anderson, South Yuba River Citizen’s League (SYRCL) Executive Director Caleb Dardick and Nevada County Regional Chamber of Commerce Executive Director Susan George. The committee meets the first Tuesday of every month at 9:30am at SYRCL Headquarters. The goal is to raise awareness of the plight of the bridge, to put pressure on State Park officials to fund the work needed and to solicit donations to provide matching funds as needed. The S.O.B. Campaign and committee need more dedicated community members to join in the effort to Save Our iconic Covered Bridge. Please consider joining the committee and becoming an active participant. Contact Dave Anderson 530-432-2359, or Doug Moon 530-205-9554.
Visitor Center hours: 11am to 4pm all days from Memorial Day to Labor Day and Thursday to Sunday from Labor Day to Memorial Day.
