“Nice county park with lake and country view”

Reviewed Mar 26, 2017

Overall Rating

We needed a place to stay for a couple of nights outside of Wilton, CA for some repairs on the Airstream. We decided to take a chance on this county/ utility district park.

In addition to the $30 per night, we had to pay an $8 reservation fee.

Each site has water, electric, fire ring and BBQ. The sites are back-in gravel and pretty level. Our site (3) was long enough to keep the truck and 30' trailer hitched. Out our back window was a lake view and out the front was a field country setting view.

All sites are not equal. After walking around the campground, we quickly decided that site 3 was the best. As you go further into the campground, the sites are much closer together. If I were to come back, I'd stay in the first 6 sites.

The campground also has two dog parks.

The campground was full over the weekend. I imagine that this place is a zoo in the summer. Lots of fishing and they rent kayaks. No gas engines allowed on the lake.
