Foothills fun

Scott’s Flat is just five miles outside of Nevada City. It is run by the Nevada Irrigation District. One of the many man made lakes in the region. There are bath houses, tent sites and no hookup RV sites. It is clean but can become loud with rowdy camping neighbors. A beautiful lake to boat, fish and swim.

Nice place

High enough altitude to stay cool in the summer evenings

Great and Re-done for 2021

Great campground but redone at the end of the 2020 season. They now have back in sites for RV's with different lengths. Check the website closely to make sure you fit!

Wild West

Great little campground

Beautiful views, close to town

Porta potties. Not too many amenities. Just what you need to camp right by the shore. Nothing more, nothing less. Our site wasn’t super flat.

One of my favorite childhood spots

It’s always a little busy on weekends, but filled with fun people. Nice sites with picnic tables, huge flattened areas for the biggest tents, fire pits, rv hookup areas, and a store close by with boat launch.

Beautiful Bowman

There are several primitive campgrounds to choose from. Some right near the lake. There is a pit toilet, but no water or fire rings. The drive is long and fairly rough. Having a vehicle with some clearance helps. It is possible to get a smaller trailer there but not recommended. The lake is beautiful and try to hike to the waterfalls at the creek at the end of the lake if you can. We’ve never had issues with animals or bugs at Bowman Lake.

Mountain Lake Beauty

So beautiful! The lake is nestled in the mountains. The scenery, fishing and water sports are superb! There are ample campgrounds with spots from tent camping to RV camping. They also have group camping right on the water! If you love mountain lakes, don’t miss this one… and book early!

Hidden gem!

My family and I have been going to this campground since I was 10. I am now 30, this year my husband and our 1 year old got to experience it they loved it! It has a spot for every kind of camper from glamping RV style to roughing it. There are bathrooms and water. A creek goes through the middle and is great in the summer for a nice cool down.

Beautiful

This campground is beautiful. I’m bummed about the new management company charging $30 a night. It’s not worth $30 a night for pit toilets. There were campground hosts roaming around but they didn’t seem to be enforcing rules, like only parking on the pavement and the noise curfew. Antelope Lake is always gorgeous though and worth the trip.
