Overall Rating

We always seem to find ourselves camping on reservoirs for nice places to get some peace and quite during the work week. Lake E.V. Spence lived up to the promise and was a perfect place to stay for the week. Access is not hard and the roads in (varying from gravel to paved) were in fine shape for any rig. After entering the Recreation Area there is a split in the road; right takes you to the group shelter and plenty of primitive camping, left takes you to the RV park, marina, boat launch, and more primitive camping. The right fork area is slightly more secluded but has slightly rougher roads to get into the camp sites. We opted for easy and went to the left but still felt plenty secluded over there.

When entering, the sign states a $5 per vehicle day use fee. Upon our arrival on a Sunday we found the marina closed thru Tuesday and the self pay station out of slips, making paying fairly difficult. We waited until they opened again that Wednesday to go pay, but there still seemed to be a bit of confusion over whether the fee applies to primitive campers, a sign in the marina calls it a "lake use fee". Regardless, camping here is either free or $5 per day.

We had a really nice quiet week here with a handful of fisherman coming by each day to use the boat launch, everyone extremely friendly. I don't know any details about the RV Park behind the marina, but there is a free RV dump (no water, just the sewer) on the road in to the Recreation Area before you get to everything.

There are other places on the reservoir that have primitive camping, the website for this listing outlines them as well as it is all managed by the water authority.

Killer Verizon internet and some good OTA TV signals are icing on the cake.
