Lake Amador Resort has been a family owned and operated business since 1972, and is located in the beautiful Oak studded foothills of the Sierras, making great camping near Sacramento and Stockton, and only two hours from anywhere in the Bay Area.
At our 1300 acre facility we offer a heavily stocked 400 acre lake, with updated dual lane boat launch and a large fishing dock for shore anglers. We also feature a huge campground with hot showers, flush toilets and large shady oak trees as well as a full hookup RV Park. For activities you will find to enjoy TWO 18 hole DISC GOLF courses, cool off at the 1 acre sand beach Swim Pond with a big WATERSLIDE and even a playground for the kids. If you’re the outdoors type you will love our scenic landscape where hiking, biking and bird watching in the Fall through Spring is absolutely beautiful.
Now you can’t forget the totally awesome Lake Amador Clubhouse where we offer food and fun out of the sun! There you can utilize the FREE WIFI, play pool, horse shoes, foosball, and watch TV. The Clubhouse features a Beer bar, as well as The Tackle Box Café, where you can get a delicious Breakfast and Lunch. Planning an event? The Clubhouse is a fully furnished building that would be perfect for weddings, reunions, family gatherings or whatever you have planned, just talk to the staff about scheduling your event.
Lake Amador boasts a whopping 50,ooolb yearly trout planting program, from October through Memorial weekend (weather permitting). We plant more pounds of trout per acre of water than any other lake in California. The lake also hosts an abundance of other fish species including: Largemouth Bass, Catfish, Crappie, Blue Gill, Brim, Carp, and shad minnows.
The full hookup rv spots are gravel & very dusty. Whole park is actually. Spots are a little tight for my 37' 5th wheel but it worked out pretty good. Back end of my trailer hung over a big hill. You sit above the full timer rv spots & mostly look at trees. Good sunsets! Lake water level was super low at end of summer & lake is hard to access. Unless you got a boat. Saw deer & wild turkeys. This park is huge. Can drive around & find a good spot to access the lake & go swimming.
The man made pond is nice for the kids. It has a slide they can use. Rv areas are clean. Tent camping is okay!
As disc golfers, of course we love camping here, having 3 courses to choose from. But there is something for everyone in the family here, there is amazing fishing, boating and swimming. The campsites are mostly level with a shared water source every site or two. Restrooms are basic and clean, no shower. There were plenty of campsites to choose from this weekend, but in summer we’ve needed reservations. The wildlife is RIGHT THERE! We saw a tarantula near the tee box on 2. I woke up with 4 deer casually strolling through our campsite, a huge group of turkeys were cruising around the whole weekend.
Fabulous lakeside camping…. We’ve been in March, May, July and September….. July, just too hot but we love being able to just get up and fish… The lake is stocked with Trout, Bass and Catfish. Tackle Box Cafe is really good, weekends only, and the staff is kind and helpful.
Privately owned campground. The water levels drastically change due to it being a privately owned lake. The employees that work there are always really sweet and helpful.
