“We stopped only to dump.”

Reviewed Dec 15, 2018

Overall Rating

$20 fee and a VERY UNLEVEL, small, back-in only dump site. Could not empty our tanks because it was so unlevel. We asked and we’re issued a refund, no problem. Staff was very helpful.

“Excellent Park”

Reviewed Nov 29, 2018

Overall Rating

No hookups, but dump station is at exit ($20 fee). Stayed here from 11/26 through 11/28. Cold with off-and-on rain. Super quiet during our stay and we were the only ones in the campground. Takes 15 mins to get to the park from HWY 50. Chain grocery store, fast food, fuel, coffee shops and others are nearby at the HWY exit. Roads ... more

“A beautiful location, but transition from off season to high season was not smooth.”

Reviewed Apr 04, 2018

Overall Rating

A very nice camp ground in a beautiful area, but it's a little pricy for what you get. We made a reservation and were told there was water and non-flush toilets all in operation. When we got there they were still transitioning from the off season to the high season. We were charged the high season rate of $35 for the camp site, but ... more

Stayed here at the end of November, very clean, nice sites, no hook ups. Water was turned off late in the year so bring you own. Some sites can be tight for larger trailers.

“Beautiful lake, very private wooded setting...”

Reviewed Oct 14, 2016

Overall Rating

We were here in the middle of October and the park was very quiet. Staff was awesome, park was super clean. Owned by the local water district. No hookups at sites - dump station and water available. No electric.

Campsite is several miles off nearest highway and then a couple more miles to campsites. Well worth the drive.

“Beautiful lake, clean park with lots of recreation and empty on a Friday night in Jan!”

I guess this spot is really popular during the summers but we had it all to ourselves on a Friday night in January. Really pretty lake with shaded sites very close to the water.
