“Great campground, 5 stars if it had cell service”

Reviewed Feb 28, 2018

Overall Rating

Sites are asphalt, mostly level though some need more adjusting, side-to-side, than others. Some sites are full hookups (including sewer), others electric & water, and some non-hookup sites. They also have camping cabins, and open (non-specific) camping along the lakefront. No maximum RV length. The campground is well-kept and the sites are neat and clean; electrical boxes are newish and well-maintained.

Sites are on one side of a large lake. Sites 1-15 are nearer the lake on a lower level, sites 16-30 are on a higher level, providing a nice view (something you can’t see from the flat campground map). Not a lot of privacy between sites, but they all have nice shade ramadas that help. Sites 16 & 17 have the best views and the most privacy. There’s an easy-to-access dump station.

Restrooms are super clean, showers have OK water pressure. There are several short hiking trails around the camp, and one longer hike out to Rattlesnake Point ruins along a dirt road. There’s an on-site camp store with a few essentials, including ice and, interestingly, gas and diesel, cheaper than in town(!), which is about 18 miles away.

Alas, alas, there’s no WiFi, and cell service is non-existent. Even with a yagi antenna and booster, we were barely able to pick up a few bars of H+ with AT&T, absolutely nothing with Verizon. The ranger station/camp store has a cell booster that they say helps with Verizon, but it didn’t help me.

“Nice lake park C/G with plenty of space, and well spaced sites with lake views. ”

Reviewed Jan 13, 2015

Well managed and maintained state park C/G. Near town for shopping, plenty of high desert scenery and nice walking trails.

Some long termed campers working at nearby power plant and the rest are either tourists or recreational campers. Not very crowded in the spring.
