Auburn State Recreation Area

Auburn State Recreation Area

Dogs on leash are allowed everywhere within 35,000-acre Auburn State Recreation Area except at Lake Clementine.

The park (which is 20 miles long on the North and Middle Forks of the American River) is situated south of Interstate 80, stretching from Auburn to Colfax. The main access is from Auburn, either on Highway 49 or the Auburn-Foresthill Road.

Auburn State Recreation Area is made up of mainly federal lands. California State Parks administers the area under a managing partnership with the U.S. Bureau of Reclamation.

Major recreational uses include hiking, swimming, boating, fishing, camping, mountain biking, gold panning and off-highway motorcycle riding.

One of the more popular trails is the Western States Trail, which hosts the Tevis Cup Endurance Ride and Western States 100 Endurance Run each summer.
