This park is located very close to Sutter’s Mill where good was discovered. It also has a white water rafting business on site.
The terrain is steep with mostly smaller sites. Water pressure is excellent. Our site had 30 amp only and I doubt any of them have 50 amp. The power is not good. I had to bypass the surge suppressor because it kept cutting out due to low voltage. Voltage was generally 104-105.
There are very nice tent and yurt sites along the river.
They have a nice shower and there’s decent AT&T service.
I would be very cautious about coming here with a larger RV. Ours is 30’ bumper to bumper. I think 32 would be ok.
Be aware that Garmin nav might take you the wrong way. Apple Maps had it correct though.
Although we did have a water view space, the actual spot was very tight and small. There aren't any actual lines delineating the camping spots - cones are used. We arrived later in the afternoon to find that our cones were moved which made our spot even smaller. No picnic table, fire rings or grills. You'll have to bring your own. (Picnic tables are available, but are not conveniently accessible.)
I am a tent camper and there are some good tent sites here. A bit open so can be windy but pick your site.
Access to the Delta with a boat ramp. Access to fishing all around you. Beyond water sports not a lot to do here but relax. Or go fly a kite.
First camping adventure with family and our new rig. Could not have been better! Smaller campground with 20-some sites. Most are well shaded. Short nature hike from campground to grinding rock. Museum closed (COVID), but Rangers were very helpful and suggested The Black Chasm. Black Chasm is a small, but unique cavern about 5 minutes drive from campground and well worth the visit.
Wicked August heat, BUT there’s the lake!
5 Stars — were it not for the SLOBS who preceded us!!🤔😡 We were a party of six, in 2 adjacent sites nearest the lake, spent the first 30+ minutes policing up ALL manner of trash; some of it appeared to have been there for YEARS, “literally” — no pun intended…
NOTE 1: We were there Tues-Thurs, only 3 - 4 other parties in the WHOLE place. It totally fills up on weekends, so our experience could be mitigated by crowds, partying!
NOTE 2: There is NO overflow parking. So if you have more than 2 vehicles you have to pay for an additional site. We all could have fit in one site but had to buy 2 sites since we had 3 vehicles and a boat/trailer.
Some sites have plenty of shade, some none, which would be killer in the heat! Great, QUIET time. When the lake is down (like now) it’s a bit of a haul to the water — cart/wagon recommended, as well as a shade pop-up AT water’s edge. Great for just floating around, having a beer or 3. Fishing attempted, no prizes….
STUNNING, ever-changing sunsets — pics don’t do justice!
Large sites, picnic table, and substantial fire ring with primitive grill. Ample water stations, only porta-potties. There are group (double) sites, [not currently available with Covid-19 restrictions]. Some sites are reasonably isolated from “neighbors,” some not. Those closest to the water are preferable. About ½ mile walk to the store, longer when the lake-level is higher.
We will DEFINITELY be back, with friends!!! Our party’s booker reports their website was a bit tricky.
We (party of 4) were there primarily because we rented a boat from their Marina. That went well! This is an RV campground & full-complement resort on Bethel Island, San Joaquin River Delta. Many RVers appear to be long-term or full-time residents.
The tent-area was a clearing, fully backed up to the levee, with some shade and a water spigot. Appears to be only 4 “sites,” which are defined by picnic tables, GENEROUSLY spaced, no fire rings AND the Delta is h.o.t.! It’s also on the far edge of the property, so car traffic was MINIMUM — and NO generators were heard, even though the RV section is huge!!!
The rest rooms were in the Marina building, a short walk. We would DEFINITELY return for boating and tenting!!!
Hilltop sites are better for smaller campers. I have an 18’ trailer and sites 126-128 are really nice. They are set into the mountains with trees behind you. The park rangers are very present to keep people in check and the camp host drives by multiple times to keep the bathrooms clean. Jenkinson late is beautiful to kayak or paddleboard on and you can also rent for $20/hr + $10/hr after that. This is a nice campground to stay in and paddling around the lake is wonderful. Plenty of space for social distancing. Also has nice trails to hike to a small waterfall. 9
This is a big campground with everything you need for boating and fishing. They have a big boat launch for easy launching. They closed their boat berths because they were rotting. They have one cabin with electricity. It has a bunk bed And a queen. Bring air mattresses cause they are just wooden frames. Very close to the Sacramento River for a nice cruise.
We were very skeptical of going during the ongoing COVID situation and we were amazed at how well this place was doing to help. Bathrooms smelled like Clorox every morning ( good thing, means they were cleaning often ) staff used mask at all times. The River was not crowded at all and when people did get near by they would respect each other’s boundaries and not crowd up. Our site was perfectly shaded and good sized right on the waterfront. Will definitely be back.
