VERY well-maintained family campground, with sometching for everyone!

More family oriented than “upscale,” what struck me was even though it maintains a substantial trout fishery, the surface tempin early June was z74 — PERFECT for swimming, tubing, etc.

Although the lake level is sadly representative of CA drought conditions, fishing was good. We caught 7 rainbows…

Great Spot, very windy

Wonderful spot. Sites were kinda small, but we we able to fit 2. -6 person tents and a 4 person in a row. Wasn’t windy when we got there in the morning, but that night the wind started and almost blew everything away. STAKE down, no matter the weather. Water was super warm, but gets icky in the…

Great little overnight spot

This campground made for a great overnight getaway trip. We went in late may and the weather was perfect for traditional camping activities. The mosquitoes were out in full force so bug spray is a must. There are some nice places to fish that are just a short walk from the campsites and the…

Go to spot

Being close to home doesn't hurt. Love going during the week. Less crowded that way. Good fishing. When the water is up, my favorite spot is 396. I can kayak right from camp.

Quiet and lots of availability

I went camping here for a couple nights in early April. There was basically no one around. This campground is pretty huge. Our site was fairly private, yet right across from the bathroom. Very spacious. We were able to do some hiking and get to the trail from our campsite. Bathrooms were very…

Great family time

Great lake to go camping with a family. Had great swimming and a nice little hiking trail. There are only a few spots so it makes it nice. Hotter during the summer months. Would be nice to camp either spring or fall.

$5, Beautiful if people were responsible

People leave their trash everywhere. People let their dogs run lose, and were loud. I doubt most of these people even paid. Anyways beautiful place if people respected it. Drive was nice, most people do not have cell service. A lady flipped her quad and was life flighted out so.... my quiet weekend…

Stopped for a day and it was great

Stopped there for the night, went from LA to Portland. Our campground was semi flat and big grounds. Bathrooms clean and quick accessible water. The only issue we had was there was no trashcans anywhere close to us and also our campground happened to be by the entrance and by the busy street, so…

Secluded, very basic, lovely

A long way down a dirt road to arrive. Fire pits + bbq grill + picnic table on each of the six or so sites, and a vault toilet at either end of the camp. I went in a Friday night in April and there was only one other couple there.

Beautiful camping area

We went to this campground to hike the San Juan trail and ended up staying the night as well. Such as beautiful campsite. It was a quiet night with not such noise from people. Tons of birds in the area to listen to.

Great campsite off the beaten path

Stayed here for 3 nights with our 2 toddlers and our dog. Lots of shade and some space between campsites. Only the lower loop of sites was open when we stayed here early April. Very dog and kid friendly. There's an easy trail that loops around the lake that's just over a mile long and a place…
