The charming town of Isleton, California (population 840), is located along the Sacramento River in the California Delta. The Delta is a land of rivers, agriculture, boating, fishing, and rich history.  Isleton’s Old Town offers a look at bygone days. The many façade front buildings still remain intact. The town was once referred to as “the Little Paris of the Delta.” Stroll down Old Town and find antiques, arts & crafts, restaurants, and the Isleton Museum.

Isleton is also synonymous with small town USA. As you enter Isleton on State Hwy. 160, you’ll notice people parking in what seems to be the middle of the road. There is also a picnic bench just off the highway in a shaded grassy area. People driving past wave at each other. They know each other by name in the Post Office. Yet, Isleton has much to offer folks looking to get away from the city and still have some fun.

With so much water around, Isleton is bound to attract its share of boaters and fishermen. You can catch striped bass, sturgeon, catfish, black bass and more. You can even trap crawdads! There are numerous marinas here where you can launch a boat, store a boat, haul a boat, or spend the day or night (or a lot of days & nights!). Many people from the San Francisco Bay area, Sacramento or even beyond, keep their boats permanently at one of the local marinas. There is also a privately owned guest dock on the Sacramento River within easy walking distance of town. You can tie up, buy bait, tackle and get some local advice about the “hot” fishing spots, have a scrumptious breakfast, lunch or dinner, or spend some time nosing about Historic Chinatown. There you can find antiques, arts & crafts, restaurants, weekend wine tasting and the Isleton Museum.

So, come give Isleton and its friendly people a visit! We believe you’ll find that you’ll want to come back again and again.

Isleton Chamber of Commerce is a nonprofit established in 1935 to help promote and support the businesses in Isleton and the surrounding Delta. It’s primary goal is to enhance the business climate of the delta by planning and coordinating events to bring thousands of people into the delta. The chamber is now working on a tourist magazine to showcase the entire delta to be distributed to major hotels, chambers of commerce, convention and business bureaus, major tourist businesses and private businesses.

Our major event is the Cajun and Blues Festival. This event established in 2011 to replace the old Crawdad Festival Father’s Day weekend. The Cajun and Blues Festival attracts thousands of people to listen and enjoy the best Cajun and Blues music in Northern California, eat great Louisiana cooking, enjoy the company of great people and explore the great California Delta. Information and photos of this event can be found on the webpage, Check our website for other smaller events to highlight and promote the Delta.
