Great spot for shoreline camping

Did a quick overnight trip. Easy to access in any vehicle. If you want to be more secluded keep following the shore line NW, however the more you travel the more ground clearance you’ll need so bring a vehicle with a little off road abilities of you want to be away from the trailers and RVS. Tons…

Fun!

No frills but where else can you camp with burros? Nature Center was great and the staff was helpful. Showers were "meh".

Off season

Not busy this time of year. The weather is a little bit cool for swimming, but it’s a nice place to hang out by the campfire. Great place to get a little bit off road but not really get too off road….

Desert Tortise

Being near the lake is very nice. Our campsite was not level at all. Basically on the side of the hill. We could not reach the water hook up because of this. There are bathrooms and that’s the only amenity. Having two gate codes was frustrating. The map and signs are not very clear or easily…

One of my favorite RV campgrounds.

I camped for 5 nights in the Roadrunner campground of Lake Pleasant.  I had a site overlooking the lake and it was fantastic.  Easy to get my 39' toy hauler in and room enough that I didn't have to unhook and could even put out my rear ramp as a deck.

Great view, easy to back in site (watch for…

Quiet, wildlife and great boondocking

Just a few minutes of travel along a dirt road, plenty of open space midweek. A couple portapots, and ok cell coverage. Lots of signs of wildlife: coyotes, horses, etc. we’d definitely come here again!

Great area for fishing

Nice quiet cove area out in the flatts, great for swiming and fishing. Camped here a few times the bugs aren't to bad and bring a toilet or hike in the bushes, it's usually quiet on this end and the rv and 5th wheels don't make it out this far so nice to have bbq and let the kids swim

Nice drive up lake sites

Gets the job done

We stayed at roadrunner campground. No big complaints. Some of the sites are kind of small but they do have parking areas for your vehicle if it does not fit on your pad with your RV. Bathroom areas have showers but leave much to be desired. If you go on a weekend the line to get into the…
