“Little Privacy, Nice for Fishing”

Reviewed Sep 11, 2017

Overall Rating

We stayed here for two days as a respite spot on our way down to Yosemite. It was 110 degrees while we were there, so the conditions were not idea. We had hoped to rent a pontoon boat, but decided the pool was a better option.

There are a few things to know about this campground that might turn some folks off:

  1. There is no swimming in the lake. It is a no body contact reservoir.
  2. They do not allow out of state boats on the lake, not even inflatable rafts fresh out of the box.
  3. The sites are not particularly level, nor are they very private. Our site felt like the meeting of three sites. You kind of had to talk to people, but at least the people were nice.
  4. There is a cafe, according to the website, but it was "closed for the season" when we were there Labor Day weekend. It was hot and smokey, so maybe the season is, technically, fall and spring.

There area also a few things to be said for this campground:

  1. There are two swimming pools, both small, but with a nice picnic area adjacent.
  2. They stock the lack with fish more often than I have ever seen at any lake in Oregon, and I think catching one's limit would happen quickly.
  3. They do rent boats, both pontoon boats and outboard rowboats, but we found the marina hard to reach and heard from a couple at the pool that they "overbook" boats, so having a reservation is not a guarantee.
  4. It is a very pretty area. If you like rolling grasslands with oaks and wild turkeys, it's quite scenic.
