Overall Rating

Huge sites with lots of privacy. Spotless vault toilets. Adjacent to beautiful reservoir, no motorized boats allowed, perfect for kayaks, SUPs, swimmers and families! Quiet and family oriented. No hookups. Some parking pads pretty small - 27’ max, many smaller. Sites not level, but mostly fixed with blocks. Dump station down the hill at Sunset Peninsula - $10 to dump. 26 slow winding miles up Ice House Rd from Hwy 50 totally worth it.
