“I wanted to like this”

Reviewed Mar 02, 2019

The reviews saying the road into the site is crazy are both right and wrong. I have a relatively small 20ft van. Has zero issues with narrowness or curves. It is in poor condition though. I averaged 10mph for about an hour on the road in. I get very little Verizon signal here. Only with booster do I get 4glte occasionally. In and o... more

“Isolated and quiet”

Reviewed Oct 13, 2018

Overall Rating

Even though we were here on a weekend there was only one other (very quiet) camper. As a bonus, the cell signal was strong. When we pulled in (Thursday) I got about 8Mbps down and 1.5Mbps up. Midday Saturday it was a whopping 58Mbps down and 10Mbps up! Add to that the feeling of isolation and plenty of roads to hike/motorcycle made thi... more

“Beautiful Free Campground in the Sierra National Forest”

Reviewed May 13, 2018

Overall Rating

This campground is called Redinger Lake Primitive Campground and is right next to Redinger Dam. There are lights that turn on at night on the dam but they are really dim and didn't hinder us from viewing the night sky. This campground is really easy to get level on, especially if you camp on the concrete slab but the other grassy are... more

“Beautiful campsite right on the lake ”

Reviewed Mar 19, 2018

Overall Rating

Redinger lake is a beautiful campground. The road into it is very narrow and a little steep though. I would not recommend driving any big rig down this way but my 22ft sprinter made it down perfectly. The site itself is a little small. Probably no more than 7 vans could fit in this area comfortably. That being said, it is gorgeous. Yo... more

“DO NOT go if you have a Class A - NOT BIG RIG FRIENDLY!”

Reviewed Nov 24, 2017

Overall Rating

I read that the "roads were sketchy" but this is an understatement. The road winds with sharp turns and a lot of pot holes. DO NOT GO in a class A. Like, just don't. Beautiful place once you get down there... but getting there was a task. We had to go 5 miles an hour... for 3 hours. Once you get on the road you cannot turn around. If y... more

“Great spot to camp”

Reviewed Sep 30, 2016

Overall Rating

Was a great spot to camp on a long lake. Pretty quiet, we were the only campers, and a few people drove by each day. You can get cell and internet reception. There is a big concrete pad you can park on that is level. There are bathrooms and trash bins. The only bad thing about this place was getting there. We have a 28 ft RV and tow a ... more

I camp here in my 30 foot Winnebago. There is a level concrete slab that several RV's could park on and a couple on spots next to the water. The road down in narrow and winding but there are several pull out spots to get out of each others way. ( Don't go if narrow roads scare you) There are pit toilets that are clean (at least in th... more
