Woodward is our family go to place to camp in the summer heat. Lots of campsites with room for tents or RVs. Fire pits and picnic tables at each site. Plenty of bathrooms, some with showers. Usually somewhat clean. Water feels good when it's 100+ degrees outside. Good prices. And you can bring your dogs.
This is one of the best for the money campground. Very clean, everything is working, exept the Wi-Fi ! Every space is very clean with planty space between them. Also they have 30 and 50 Amps at every site. Large open view to Sacramento River.
We stayed at site 97. It was downhill from the road so it made it a little more private. The bathrooms had showers, flush toilets and running water, and we're pretty clean. We were able to rent a boat for tuning on the lake, which made the trip.
Not a whole lot of people when I visited in March— pros and cons to having the campground to myself. A lot of privacy but almost a little to much privacy as a woman. Set up my tent near a couple as I was bike packing down US 1 for some protection. Fire wood available but I was able to find some left over from people’s campsites that went unused.
We camped out for 2 nights in spot 96 in the height of summer and just before all the fires started. New Melones was not a top destination but it was close to a very special place for us, Natural Bridges. Also, at the time of booking it was one of the few campgrounds accepting new reservations in this age of COVID. We selected spot 96 as it was the furthest from any other spot (situated on a bend and the only site on that part of the road for a while). It was something like 107 when we were setting up the tent and most of the day time but on the lake itself, the temperature was perfect. One thing to be aware of, most of the drive in camp sites, including ours, had absolutely no shade (including nowhere to hang a hammock).
- The view was amazing
- The tent spot was level and clear of big rocks
- All the campers abided by quiet time
- It was so dark that I was able to do some great astrophotography
- The location was a great step off point for adventure in Gold Country
- The last campers in our spot left garbage everywhere. We filled up a large garbage bag before we could setup camp.
- Some bathrooms were closed but port-o-potties were there instead (as if somehow that is more clean???)
- The bathrooms that were open were disgusting
- No camp host onsite while we were there
We don’t have a boat but the boat launch was pretty busy all day and the day use spots were packed.
All in all, Tuttletown wouldn’t be our first choice but we would go back - probably later in the season since we aren’t there for boating.
I was debating on 3 or 4 stars. Showing up in 107 heat and wanting to set up a tent but having to clean up that much garbage was a huge turn off and having bathrooms closed with no notice was also a disappointment. I know these things aren’t normal but more notice on facilities and finding ways to get this cleaned up first would be a start.
Cute small campsites, kind of close to your neighbor. Not a lot of bugs which is always a plus when your near water, we went mid October and the weather wasn’t too hot or too cold. They have flushing toilets and coin operated showers with is nice, but the toilet situation near our campsite was questionable (site 62). Your not as close to the water as you would think looking at the map you need to drive a few minutes to the parking lot. But we found a nice private spot to dunk in the water. No electrical hook up. In some spots the hook ups are far, other sites they have them every few feet.
Near 39 is nice
