“Big lake right off of I-80 in the sierra Nevada mountains”

This campground is for tent or small trailers. Bigger Rv's can stay overnight at the lake parking lot. The camp host is locating on the right as you enter the lakeside parking lot. Most of the campsites are not level & its fairly tight to negotiate you trailer into a spot

We stayed in #10 which was in the shade 90% of the day, but it has a small parking spot. I would check campsite photos.com to see the sites for yourself before you reserve a spot.

The lake is great but there is no trail to get around the lake, its all boulders & branches. See my picture & you'll see what i mean. Didn't even get a bite fishing from the shore but did see plenty of fishermen on boats.

You will also hear the occasional train passing by, the tracks are about a 1/4 mile away. I was able to make a call on verizon & was able to surf the web from our campsite. The trash bin is by the lake which is about a 15 minute walk , so we'd drive down our trash :~( I'd stay here again, nice but not over the top.

“Beautiful lake, tricky campsite access”

Reviewed Jul 30, 2017

Overall Rating

Lake Spaulding is owned by PG&E. We scouted the campground but did not stay here because there is no cell service on either Verizon or AT&T. The campground is suited to very small rigs and trailers due to a narrow twisty road and trees growing close to the edge of the road. There were 3 RVs camping in the boat trailer parking area (in spite of signs that said no camping allowed) and there appeared to be a campground host here as well. I would check with the host before setting up here.

There are all sorts of day use, boat ramp and pet fees in addition to the campground rate - check attached photo.
