Modern, well-maintained overnighter

Easy day of reservation, with the easy after hours check in. Flat paved sites. Mostly a parking lot style RV park with flat pads and full hook ups. Lots of noise from the interstate, ear plugs necessary. Crossroads area offers lots of travelers amenities such as coffee shops, restaurants and…

Came for the mountain biking, stayed for more

To be honest, I didn't experience much of the campground, but that parts that I did were above my expectations. A friend and I went in March of 2021 to ride the mountain bike trails. I reserved our spots on-line with no knowledge of the layout aside from the PDF map. It turns out I picked a nicely…

Good for overnight RV

I have stayed at this RV park several times as a stop over for the night. It’s not the kind of place I would want to stay at much longer but it does have all the power and water connections that one needs for an RV. Most of the sites I have stayed at have the connections at the center of the site…

Convenient, shady respite

Easy on/off from Hwy. 99. Nice management. Spaces large and lots of shade coverage. Close to hwy but far enough that road noise isn't onerous. Train passes through once at night time, bring earplugs. Clean, tidy, well kept campground.

The staff there were great, very helpful and accommodating. They put us in G loop #19 which was pretty much on a hill and with my 33 foot travel trailer, there was no way for me to get it in there and level. I actually snapped a bolt off my stabilizer trying to back my rig in there, so we told the…

Nice Midweek Getaway

Easy check in and no extra fee for our 3 Aussies! We stayed at site c-1 for 2 nights and found it to be both clean and level.

RV sites have water and 30 amp hookups. Hookups are seemingly on the wrong side of your vehicle in many sites. If you want easy access to the picnic table, you’ll need…

Modesto camping

After going a few times I managed to find a nice spot I try to camp near. I enjoy how close the sites are to the water. Could use more consistent maintenance though. It gets crowded but one can still enjoy the experience.

Turkeys are everywhere 😊

Great campground! Overrun with wild turkeys which beats the human variety. March weekend trip with tons of spaces to choose from. My understanding is come May it gets pretty busy. Hot showers, Electric, water and great views. McSwain (near the ranger station entrance) has dump station, some sites w…

Another great last minute trip

I'm fortunate to be able camp at Lake McClure often because it is not too far from where i live. The campsites were very clean, bathrooms were very clean and well maintained and the cost to camp here at $25 per night is reasonable. We have brought our watercraft here and the people boating around…

Good for the family

We went during the week and we were the only ones there. The Rangers are super nice and the showers were clean. They do have a ton of open space but lack shade and their website needs some updates since they don't represent the campsites very good. the lake was nice and warm and very refreshing.…
