Tuolumne River

Contact Info
19777 Greenley Rd.
Sonora, CA 95370

April to November


Lumsden Road and Cherry Lake Road provide access to the Tuolumne, most of which is located in unroaded areas. Within the Stanislaus National Forest, the River is not highly developed for recreation due to rugged terrain and few access points, yet fishing, hiking, and camping are very popular. The unique recreation feature of the Lower Tuolumne is whitewater boating.

Within the Tuolumne River Recreation Area, camping is restricted to designated sites at Lumsden Campground, Lumsden Bridge Campground and South Fork Campground


Rainbow Trout


April to November
Additional Details:

A valid California state fishing license is needed to fish in the National Forest. Licenses are sold at sporting good outlets in many department and other retail stores. Make sure you pick up a current state fishing regulation guide with your license, for information on fishing times and limits. Contact California Department of Fish and Game for more information.
