Camp hosts were great, campsites were close together but lots off trees, the reservoir was lovely (we were there in a heat wave).

“Fine campground, plenty of space, focus seems to be tents and small RV. ”

I really enjoyed the campground, about 1 hr away from I80. Plenty of room between sites, water and pit toilets located throughout campground. Lake apparently popular with fishing and paddle boats. Easy hiking trail around Sugar Pine Reservoir, 5 miles around, but two sections on either side of the dam are challenging. Stay on paved trail for great views, lake access and shaded benches. quiet camping.

There are one or two places around the lake where a stray verizon signal penetrated the forest and updated texts and email.
