Easy lake access

We stayed here the last weekend of June and it was a really warm weekend. Friday was 82 at its highest so it was actually really comfortable since our site was shaded fairly well. Lake jenkinson is right across from our campsite so access was really easy! Saturday we walked over and set up our canopy to cool down by the lake. There are some rentals for water activity and this lake seems very popular for water skiing and tubing! Great way to cool down. Site 33 has an outhouse right at the top of the site so that was convenient! Across from our site was also a water spigot. There are no showers here and during the hot weather that honestly sucks! But moist towelettes work well to just cleanse your body. They sell firewood at the host area for $7 a bundle. Safeway is an 8 minute drive away so you can run there for ice and groceries. There’s a nice perimeter hike around the lake that is pretty shaded also! Overall the campground is awesome. I did wish they had actual restrooms so that we could use a sink. I took my 8 month old son for the first time and it was a great experience for him, especially playing in the lake.
