“Little bit of paradise ”

Reviewed Nov 06, 2018

Overall Rating

I have been camping here for a while already, the rangers are very friendly and keep the camping very clean and tied.

They have a lot of the sites, many are electric and water and 22 sites full hookup. They have a special rate for more than 7 days that is $18.00 full hookup but you need to call them, online you don’t have this rate.

On weekends are pretty busy, on weekdays is peaceful, very close to the lake, that you are able to fish or just relax at the beach. This is my favorite camping in Central California so far.

“Great quiet lake in the off season”

Reviewed Nov 02, 2018

Overall Rating

We were originally headed to McClure further up but a friend highly suggested this lake and we're glad we stopped in for a few days (Thur-Sat). A mix of sites with full hook-ups (further from lake), elec/water only, or water only (next to the lake). We chose an electric site within sight and walking distance to the lake to launch our kayaks. Very peaceful in the off season but ranger told us the weekend before (pre-Halloween) and the following weekend (Veteran's Day) are nearly full with reservations. Only reason for 4 star vs 5 is they charged $4 for our dog (on top of the $28 for the site)! That's 15% of the site fee! We also had lots of flies at our site.

There is a dump station onsite with 3 lanes. The bathrooms/showers in the C/D/E/F loops were old and not well maintained (woman's shower stall was falling off the wall).

There is a marina store onsite but the hours were reduced in the off season (8:30-2:00 Fri-Sun). We would stay here again but only in the spring or fall/winter as it gets VERY hot here in the summer. We had high 70s in early November.
