I just got word from the head of Parks & Recreation at Yuba County, and local guide Lance Gray, about Sycamore Ranch and Hammon Grove Park. Both areas will be opening this Friday! The take out ramp at Sycamore Ranch was not damaged, but there is erosion around it that will need to be addressed in the future. The county is hoping to get the upper loop of the campground open soon, the lower loop still has a significant amount of dried silt on it and they need more time to clean it up. Showers and other plumbing will also take a little more time to update and be functional. Hammon Grove was lightly damaged at the entrance, and the bathrooms will be out of order until further maintenance is completed. Both areas will have porta potties in the meantime. For those who will be floating the river for the first time, including seasoned guides, there will be changes, so look ahead and pick your lines carefully. Also there have been many trees sucked into the river from the two 80k events so be wary of snags under the surface. The future looks bright, be safe out there.
