The parking lot often fills to capacity on summer weekends, and rangers will close vehicle entry until space becomes available. Plan to arrive before 10 a.m. on weekends for the best availability. Street parking is limited.

Steelhead Beach is a destination for summer fun on the Russian River. Swimming, paddling, sunbathing, picnicking, and barbecuing are favorite activities here during warm months. Fishing, birding, and wildlife viewing are popular activities year-round.

Canoes and kayaks can be launched from the beach year-round while a launch for larger craft is available October through mid-May. The seasonal launch requires an annual permit ($45 recreational or $75 commercial) and includes access to a seasonal launch at Wohler Bridge
