Spent only one night at the Sunflower Meadows campground area of the El Dorado State Park, but was able to find a very level spot, so we didn't need to unhook. Campsite was well maintained.
This area has 1,000 campsites from primitive to full hook ups, which is what we paid for. The lake was extremely high and rising, so we choose not to park in one of the campsites near and in the water, as our pictures will show. The campsite we choose had no shade, and if we had neighbors they would have been fairly close. Did have a nice picnic table, and fire ring.
Restrooms were terrible!! No door to keep out bugs and critters, but there were stall doors. Restrooms were full of bugs, and not clean.

Solid place to overnight or stay short-term. Watch out for the vehicle and processing fee.
