Overall Rating

Stayed here a week in the Fall of 2016 and again in August of 2017. There are approximately 50 camp sites, many with long parking areas good for trailers. The sites are widely spaced so even if you have a neighbor, you have privacy. The star gazing here is excellent as Ackerman is far from Redding.

The bathrooms, showers and water supply were uncertain. The camphost admitted there had been problems with the well. We drank our own water.

Some reports mention bees. We had traps and had no problems.

The path down to the lake is easy enough but we did not catch fish.

Access to Ackerman is good wide pavement all the way to the campground.

I read in another review that the loops may have tight enough turns to limit the length of an RV such that the camper had to back their rig out. I am not sure about that. On my visit I had a truck pulling a modest cargo trailer so there were no problems. On my second trip, I was pullilng a 27 foot trailer and made it around the North loop OK - although I admit I went in the reverse (clockwise) direction since that worked out to be a little more forgiving.
