LAKEFRONT VIEWS!!

Clean campground, friendly hosts, all the amenities you could need while enjoying time spent not too far away from the greater Sacramento area. Tons of trails nearby and perfect for boating and water sports! An all around win!

Paved pad for Camper, 5G Cell service, big site w/ huge shade trees.

Loved this site 21. So huge and shady almost all day. A health walk to the lake with a large sandy beach. Lake had a lot of boats on it but mornings and evenings you have it to yourself. Dogs welcome at this campground.
