Beautiful location

First time here at Jackson and we were pleasantly surprised with how beautiful this park is! Not a bad spot anywhere! Spacious , clean, very friendly staff, beautiful walking trail around the park. The views are so beautiful we will definitely come back!

Hard to say, easy to stay

This is one of the most beautiful, secluded little places we've been. Showers and bathroom facility kept clean. A short walk down to the edge of the Stanislaus River and you won't want to leave. Very family friendly.

New Hogan Lake

For the price ($20) it's not bad. Plenty of shade. Nice and pieceful. My only gripe was the shower. Some didn't have enough water pressure and others didn't work at all. Right now the boat ramp at acorn is about half a mile from the water.

Good times

We stayed here for a weekend on a whim in September, and there were a good amount of sites to pick from. We had a view of the lake and some shade at our site, and it was relatively quiet, so we were happy. The lake level was pretty low.

Great park, beware the yellow jackets!

This is a super magical park! Giant trees, great visitor center and junior ranger program, and swimming in the Stanislaus river (cold but refreshing!!)

Beautiful

My daughter and I were on a road trip from Long Beach, CA to Long Beach, WA this April and visited with friends in nearby Murphys. They recommended Big Trees State Park, so we swung by to see if we could nab a spot to camp; sadly, the campground was still closed for maintenance—tree clearing,…

Fishing/camping

We expected a bigger and cleaner area for kids to play in. Unfortunately, the pool area was not to expectations and had a foul smell. My son complained about green mold on the slide. The staff although are friendly and helpful.

Solitary and Smokey

My first time towing my Airstream into a campground and I was glad the place was deserted. Not one single other camper. It got even more smoky the next day. I appreciated the water at the site. The lake really low, like all lakes in Cali.

Love it here

We love how clean it is, and the staff is friendly. The surrounding areas are woodsy and our dogs love the dog park!

Crowded, noisy, and pricy

Water was clean and fresh, sites were fairly clean as well. After those positive things the grounds were sparse and apparently they take reservations because all the posts had reserved signs on them although others say it is first come first serve. We were lucky to get the second to last spot…

Meteor shower camp out

Had a great time here. We had a spot a 20ft from the lake. It was a meteor shower night and it was amazing. I would recommend this place during the cooler months.

Horses! One of the few horse campsites with tons of great trails!

Lots of private sites; takes tents to big RVs. No cement or asphalt-all dirt. “Resort” is a bit of a stretch, this is no fancy “glamping.” Silver Lake, hiking, trails (tons!), kayaking, boating, fishing, swimming with ducks and geese, upper lakes to find. 8000 ft elev. some permanent loops with…

Sun fan camp spot

Amazing location, so close to water. It gets hot in the sun gets intense, make sure to bring shade and you will enjoy every minute. Also bring bug spray, lots of spiders and lots of ants but that is the outdoors, just come prepared
