The sprawling waters of Yuba State Park provide a variety of recreation opportunities for visitors. Warm water and sandy beaches, along with nearby off-highway vehicle riding areas, lure visitors during summer months. One of the few state parks with boat-in camping, Yuba is very popular with water recreationers. Two boat ramps, one at Yuba State Park and one at Painted Rocks, provide access for all types of watercraft. Other activities include camping, hiking, picnicking, rock hounding, bird watching, interpretive and junior ranger programs, mountain biking, and waterfowl hunting in season.
