Auburn State Recreation Area
Swimming and river touring — River flows and levels are swift and unpredictable, so please use common sense and proper safety equipment. A wide variety of non-motorized boating opportunities can be found on the North and Middle Forks. The river’s swift currents are not for beginners. The North Fork and Middle Fork range from a Class II float to a much more dangerous Class VI portage.
Lake Clementine — Off the Foresthill Road about two miles from Auburn, the lake has a seasonal boat launch ramp, a marina, boat-in campsites, and a day-use swimming area at the upper end of the lake. Call (530) 885-4527 for current boating regulations.
Fishing — The Middle Fork is a good place to catch trout and bass. Fishing on the North Fork is only fair due to low flows during warm summers.
Camping — Three primitive campgrounds have no flush toilets, showers, or drinking water.
Mineral Bar Campground — A narrow, paved road leads to 17 campsites on the east side of the North Fork, off Iowa Hill Road. Campsites are available first-come, first-served.
