SoCal Jet Boats returns to Big River for Fathers Day Weekend on June 18th, 2022! Some of our best times and greatest memories of the earlier years were held on this stretch of river. Launch at the Big River Community Beach or other local RV parks. Local bar/restaurant is Dumas Walkers where everyone hangs out in the evenings.

Fair Warning: Local authorities (tribal) are very strict on drinking and driving. Be sober or don't drive!

Facebook Event: https://www.facebook.com/events/453609793062402/

This stretch of river can be unforgiving in some areas. If you are unfamiliar with this area, please drive with caution or follow a fellow boater for direction.

This is the third stop for the SoCal Jet Boats 2022 Summer Tour.

We are so excited to be going back to Big River for Fathers Day Weekend!

The Big River Community Park will be where the majority of people will launch from. The launch ramp is a bit tough as it is directly in the current of the river. If you see someone struggling, please lend a hand. Big River has graciously reduced the launch fee from $25 to $20 for all SoCal Jet Boats members who are going to be launching at the Community Park. The park has been fighting financial difficulties with the CRIT shutdown of the river due to COVID and increasing costs of operations. Brittney and I encourage everyone to donate to the park if possible. We take pride in supporting those who support us. Let's make sure this community stays open and helps take care of each other so we can continue doing what we all love, boating!

The Park has been an important part of the community and has been the site for many weddings, celebrations of life, BBQs, parties and events since 1975! We look forward to having more events here.

Like previous years, we will hang out at the community park for a bit, then make stops at the sand bars up river (water levels permitting) then ultimately spend the day up at "Pee Pee Cove", which is on the CA side of the river, just below the Bluewater Dam.

For those of you who have been around longer, but haven't been to Big River in awhile, unfortunately the Big River Inn and Catfish Cantina are no longer open. The Local Bar and Restaurant Dumas Walker is still open and if you are up for some Karaoke, lets see what you got! This will be a great spot for everyone to hang out in the evening.

All waterway and on-road laws will be enforced. Be aware that the CRIT police patrol the area. Do not drink and drive.

Here is a map of the town of Big River. Circled in RED is the Big River Community Park. The entrance is down the hill from the intersection of Del Rey Drive and Rio Mesa Drive. Circled in YELLOW is the ramp most people use in the park. Parking is limited so please be mindful of others and don't take up a ton of room. Circled in BLUE is Dumas Walkers Bar & Grill. They have food, drinks, and Karaoke. It's where most people will be hanging out in the evenings. Reminder: Tribal police heavily patrols this area and have a zero tolerance for drinking and driving.



Here is a Google Map Pin Drop if you need specific directions directly to the ramp area.

Here is a map of the river between the Big River Community Park (Circled in RED) and the Bluewater Damp (Circled in BLUE)
There are a few sand bars circled in ORANGE (water level permitting) that people hang out at, but mostly everyone heads up to "Pee Pee Cove" which is appropriately circled in YELLOW.
There are several rock bars and shallow areas in Big River (no different than any other section of the river). Please use caution and follow someone if you aren't familiar with the area.

We look forward to seeing you all there!

I hope to make this event with the Baja. It's my first weekend in town. All these warnings about the law is giving me pause.

In all honesty, it's not that bad. You probably wont see a cop all weekend on this part of the river. I just have to put it out there to keep the knuckleheads in check. Looking forward to seeing you out there!
