The Cache Creek Middle Site is also the Yolo County Campground. The Cache Creek Middle site provides 45 individual camp sites, 4 large group camp sites, 2 restroom buildings, a general store, large turf areas, a playground, numerous picnic tables, a day-use parking area (parking fee required), and rural pedestrian access to Cache Creek all within the beautiful rural setting of the Cache Creek Canyon.  Canyon Peaks reach higher than 2200 feet in elevation while the campground is at approximately elevation 600 leading to a beautiful setting for camping, hiking and picnicking. 

Park hosts reside on site to assist campers with check-in and out and with visitors as needed. The campground store typically sells water, ice, firewood, ice cream and variety of camping supplies, while supplies last.  The campground is a very popular destination and reservations are strongly recommended to ensure a campsite is available.  The Day-Use parking lot at the middle site is full most summer weekends but the Cache Creek Upper and Lower Park sites offer park visitors plenty of day use parking in the Cache Creek Canyon area (day use fee required and is strictly enforced).

All camping sites must be physically occupied by people and camping equipment to be considered occupied.  Campers must be 18 years of age to camp alone, children must be accompanied by an adult.  Hook-ups are not available but there is a central dump station available.  Check out is 11:00am for all camp sites, including group sites.  Stays are allowed up to ten consecutive days, with a 14 day break required before another camping permit will be issued.

Rural pedestrian beach access is available with NO lifeguard on duty.  Most cellular phones do not work at this site and there is no public phone or electrical outlets. The camp site can be over 100 degrees Fahrenheit in the summer day and well below 50 degrees Fahrenheit in the summer evening. By contrast temperatures can also randomly be quite cold during summer day as well so plan accordingly. In early spring and late fall, temperatures can drop to near or below freezing. Potable water is available on site.
