Why is most of the River access around Fitch Mountain closed off?

Fitch Mountain river front property is all privately owned. The few places like Camp Rose that may have offered river access in the past are no longer public facilities. The only river access in Healdsburg is at Memorial Beach. Of course, you could always rent or buy a property and have your own beach access. Many of the homes on South Fitch and Redwood Drive have great beach access.

The National River Law states that every navigable river in the US is public land up the the median high water mark. The access may be denied from the road to a specific spot, but if you can get to that spot it is completely legal for you to be there, even right in front of the houses. Look it up.
