Mokelumne River Access Closed Through July 4
sj parks

With the Mokelumne River expected to remain at 2500 CFS (cubic feet per second) for the foreseeable future, access to the river will remain closed through the July 4 holiday, San Joaquin County Parks officials have announced.

The river’s closure has meant all recreational usage including river rafting from the Mokelumne River Day Use Area to the county’s own Stillman Magee Regional Park will remain closed through July 7. The park remains closed along with Woodbridge Wilderness Area.

State and county officials have continued to monitor local rivers and waterways since winter storms caused record snowfall and sparked flood concerns. Day-use and boat launching at Dos Reis Regional Park, which borders the San Joaquin River, remains closed at this time, along with Mossdale Crossing Regional Park.

Park officials will continue to assess all facilities as flood concerns subside and reopen these parks once conditions improve. There is no estimated reopening date at this time.

For the latest conditions and closures, residents can visit the county’s Office of Emergency Services (OES) page at For more information on park closures and reopening status, visit the county parks website at, Facebook or Instagram pages.
