Love coming here anytime of the year.Not to far out from Modesto Or Riverbank. There is an archery range here which I still need to check it out. Price has gone up compare to past years but I like it due to it location. Certain time of the year it get pretty busy but we always camp on the far end of the campground where there is less people. Good area to use a paddle boat or canoe, water lately isn't that deep. Always see people fishing off shore but I haven't had any luck there. Very peaceful area except for waking up to geese near the campsite but they won't bother you at all. Boys like coming here to relax and go in the water right next to the campsite. There is also a 1 Mile Orienteering Course which is used to train my boys to use a compass. Bow fishing is also allow certain time of the year.

Here is the link to the Orienteering Course
