Little bit of green along the river

Probably COVID related but this park is under utilized and under attended. The shower is of if you throw in quarters and close your eyes. It could use some TLC but was a quite place to stop for the night.

Not all spots have shade.

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.

If you like the heat

Don Pedro is a big beautiful reservoir that has plenty of fingers coming off the main body. Perfect for wakeboards! It gets to be around 100-110 degrees though. I like the campground more than the others on the lake because it has a lagoon for the kids with picnic tables, bbq pits and a large grass…

Nice lake for family camping

We were there in July 2020 with a group with many children. We stayed at the full hookup spots H84,88 area. These spots were NOT good for little ones learning to walk. It was very uneven and rocky but spacious with trees and a view of the lake. We stayed Thursday to Sunday. Saturday is crazy at…

Good spot near water

Initial thought was the hill kinda sucked but it was ok, has cut outs on the hill for tents, very close the the water we were on camp sites numbers 20,21. No parking near camp site you have to unload gear and drive ur vehicle about 1/4mile to park. Good spot if you have kayaks to launch from.

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.…

Plenty of campsites

Great place to take the family or a large group. Group sites a very nice. Near by store for any items you forgot to bring. Take my boys here a few time a year. Fishing is always good and the water is perfect just to go boating. Not too crowded plus there is also a swimming lagoon, perfect to go for…
