Hogback Island Access


In spite of its name, Hogback Island Access does not have any piggy denizens. Rather, this Delta facility is for people who enjoy fishing, recreational boating, rowing, picnics and barbecues. The expansive parking lot and grassy picnic area slopes down to a handsome lagoon with a dock and two-lane boat launch. This Delta park caters to many types of park visitors and is especially popular in the summer and early fall. Enjoy riverside togetherness at Hogback!
