Welcome to McConnell State Recreation Area
The Merced River, after coursing its way through the Yosemite Valley, becomes calm and inviting as it flows through McConnell State Recreation Area. Tower- ing cottonwoods and sycamores offer relief from the dry heat of the central San Joaquin Valley. Where the Merced passes through George J. Hatfield State Recreation Area, visitors are inspired to take advantage of a riparian habitat that offers fishing, swimming, rafting and other water-related activities. The two parks are about 20 miles from each other, and because of their proximity, they share essentially the same ecology.

The native streamside habitat may be observed while rafting or canoeing down the river. The river flows slowly during the summer months, and there are limited access points. Allow plenty of time to relax and enjoy the scenery.
