About Coronado/Lakeview

Located on a hill overlooking Parker Canyon Lake, campsites are spread among a stand of oaks and junipers. From the campground it is just a short walk to the lakeshore or a short drive to the boat launch ramp, fishing pier, paved parking areas and paved walkways, all of which are accessible to persons with disabilities. Parker Canyon Lake and Lakeview Campground are generally less crowded than similar areas that are more easily accessible. On some days you can hike the entire 5-mile trail around the lake and have only the resident wildlife for company. This trail has several viewing areas complete with benches and interpretive signs. Two of the viewing areas are barrier-free. It is an excellent place to view the waterfowl that either live at the lake or use it as a stopover on their seasonal migration. Bald eagles and osprey are also frequently sighted here, as are Coues white-tailed deer and an occasional extended family of coatimundi, those long-tailed, long-nosed southwestern cousins of the raccoon. Note: Black bears are common in the area. This campground is accessible to persons with disabilities.

Excellent family site

This is a great campsite for tent or campers. It has great access to the lake and the fish are almost always biting. Bring the kids bikes so they can explore a bit and enjoy the sunsets.

Nice and quiet

This USDA Forest Service campground is a very nice one. Nicely laid out sites, well maintained bathrooms. It’s easy to walk to the lake from the lowest tent sites. We stayed here in fall, and imagine it’s heavily used in summer. There’s a great trail around the lake. $20 as of November 2020.

Less busy then Patagonia Lake

We had a great time here over the weekend. The sites are large and spaced out. Each space has a fire pit and picnic table. There is water available but it’s located next to the pit toilets, not at the individual sites.

You can see the lake from the sites, but we had to walk about 1/2 mile to get to the water. We did catch 3 trouts, so it was worth it.

Over half of the spaces were occupied on a Saturday in February. Several large and loud groups as well.

Beautiful lake view!

Beautiful sunsets in the fishing isn't half-bad either!!

Family Camping

We regularly camp here with our cub scout pack and their families. Nice and well maintained sites, accessible bathrooms, and great rangers.

Watch out for skunks!

We loved this campgrounds accessability to water! After camping in the desert for a few days it was nice to let my dog swim around and to dip my feet in the many lakes this campground is close to. The sites were big and perfect for hanging hammocks. Our camp neighbors- although close were mostly in their RVs- and didn't bother us tenters. The one thing was we had an influx of skunks while enjoying our nightly fire! There were about five of them all invading our area and we (four adults and two dogs) were all on the picnic table trying to be as still and as quiet as we could. It must have been a really funny sight-- but we were really not about getting sprayed! Toilets are typical pit- but the host was awesome and put some air fresheners all around. It was an awesome place to rest our heads for the night!
