“Lakefront At Its Finest”
Reviewed Jun 23, 2017
I have to admit I was a bit nervous towing my 30' long trailer into this campground as I knew it was tight but the payoff was more than worth it. The entrance station was unmanned so we made our way to our site about 2 hours before check-in which is 2PM. No problem.
The interior roads are very tight with some gnarly close turns. My wife got out to spot me on a couple and no problem. I was relieved to see some larger rigs than ours on our loop. We were amazed at our site when we arrived. The lake was full so the water was about 15 feet from the trailer. Sweet! We had our own private sandy beach with campfire ring, picnic table and food storage box. We set up the Easy-up and spent most of our time hanging out here and in the cool, clear water while here. It was hot! We had our kayaks so we unloaded them and left them on the beach so we could launch from the site any time we wanted.
Staff were very friendly and informative, and pretty easy going about dogs or whatever. The camp manager came by with his dog to introduce himself. Dogs should be on a lead except when in the water when they can be free, but it's not strictly enforced. There are no RV hookups and pit toilets are the norm. There are an average amount of water faucets and most have threads so you can fill tanks. You will be dry camping here, so bring your solar or generator if staying awhile in your RV. There is a dump station but we did not use it.
The site we were in was close to the highway so there was some road noise, but it was mostly unnoticeable with the water lapping on the shore. Noise from other campers was negligible. There are power boats on the lake, but the campground has a no wake zone for several hundred yards around it. Perfect for kayaking or just floating around and swimming. The lake water was crystal clear.
This is definitely a do-over.

On Tuesday we were just outside of Nevada City and Grass Valley at (Henry) Rollins Lake...a campground called Peninsula Camping & Boating Resort. Pretty campground, no hookups, and a high of about 97...
