“Well spaced, full hookup sites”

Reviewed Mar 31, 2019

Overall Rating

So glad we came here for our first shakedown trip with our new rig. Sites are huge and well separated by trees. We are 25’ but could have easily fit a much larger rig in our site (Site 63). Access to the site was easy. Staff was very friendly and the campground is very well kept. 3 min walk from our site to Folsom Lake. You are def... more

Reviewed Feb 22, 2019

Overall Rating

This is a state park, you have to pay to be here, the sheriff and rangers patrol regularly so it is a very safe place to park. It is close to Folsom Lake and the dam but you can't see it from the campsites. First come first serve and reservations accepted it fills up fast. Dry camping is $28 and to plug in is $48, pay showers, firewood... more

“Convenient location, but nothing special - Bird watcher paradise!”

Reviewed Feb 22, 2019

Overall Rating

We stayed here for a couple of nights as a stop-over before visiting Vinnie's Airstream Repair on Monday morning. Opted for a full-hookup site as I was unsure about the non-hookup portions of the campground as some folks had reported low-hanging branches. Some sites were flooded when we arrived, so we were lucky to get an unflooded ... more

“Great location near Beals Point (Folsom Lake)”

Reviewed Mar 25, 2018

Overall Rating

Great location if you like to run your generator passed late hours. No one was on B-11 so we ran it late and played our outdoor entertainment system. This spot is near the roadway but you couldn’t hear nothing when inside the RV and traffic was minimal in the morning. Folsom lake was within a walkable distance. There were some low lyi... more

Was hoping to dry camp at Peninsular Campground on north side of Folsom Lake (reservoir) but they close October 1! Checked my apps and found Beals is open all year so drove another 40 minutes on small winding roads to south side of Lake and pulled in here for two nights. Chose a spot in the RV hookups sites. $46 with senior discount a... more

“Lovely lake, decent site separation, and nicely treed. But mind the low hanging branches and your wallet!”

Reviewed Jul 18, 2017

Overall Rating

Camping options close to Sacramento are very limited. Beals Point Campground on Folsom Lake has one loop with full hookups designated for RVs only, the remainder of the “tent” sites have no hookups. We waited too long to land a spot with hookups, so made reservations for a week in one of the sites without hook-ups. Most of the tent... more

“urban camping”

Reviewed Feb 02, 2017

Overall Rating

This is a nice campground not only close to, but in civilization. We camped in site 12 in the tent loop, and there are 3 or 4 spots that could fit a trailer, but not a large one. Site 12 is not reservable - park workers said it is buffer site, but I never did figure out what that means. It is definitely not level, but we did manage... more

We pulled in on 4th of July and were able to take our pick of a few tent spots that were open. We got a great one, with plenty of shade and space between our neighbors. The bathrooms and coin showers were in okay condition, but considering the chaos that was happening it really wasn't too bad. We went over and checked out the RV s... more

“Natural setting with city conveniences”

Reviewed Mar 19, 2015

Overall Rating

Beals Point offers two options, electric RV sites or non-electric tents sites. We camped in a non-electric site, which vary from back-in, parallel pull-outs, and shared sites. Our spot was large (could accommodate many vehicles); however, there was the challenge of backing down large hill/dip. Many water spigots and trash/recycle ... more

Sites are close, but not parking lot close like some places. Enough trees and separation to give decent privacy. Few sites overall means lower noise. Backside of loop (BP60 & BP62) are alongside busy road so some noise through treeline. If you're into mountain biking there are excellent trails leaving directly from RV loop (great f... more
