Kings Island (formerly Bra's Island) is an island in the Old River in the south Sacramento-San Joaquin River Delta in San Joaquin County, California, 9.3 miles (15 km) southwest of Stockton. The small 3.5 ha (8.6-acre) island is the smallest of a cluster of delta islands including Eucalyptus Island, Widdows Island, Victoria Island, and Coney Island, adjacent to Clifton Court Forebay. At 3 feet (0.91 m) above sea level with the surrounding waters kept a bay by a levee system, the island is accessible only by the one road from the Clifton Court levee or by boat.
