Planning a visit soon? For detailed information on current restrictions and closures in this National Forest, visit the official USFS Stanislaus National Forest website.
The Stanislaus National Forest is located in the central Sierra Nevada. There you can fish in over 800 miles of rivers and streams, enjoy a comfortable cabin, stay in a campground, or hike into the backcountry seeking pristine solitude. You can swim near a sandy beach or wade into cold clear streams cooling your feet while lost in the beauty of nature, raft the exciting and breath-taking Tuolumne River, or canoe one of the many gorgeous lakes. You can ride a horse, a mountain bike or a snowmobile. Clearly the choice is yours in the special places of the Stanislaus National Forest.
The Stainislaus and 3FIA pay tribute to a beloved member of the community: REMEMBERING BILL ROBERSON
