2 Reviews of El Vado Lake State Park

Was there September 9-11, 2019. Best camping trip so far. Camped away from everyone up the hill Had an Elk come into camp about 15 yards from me. Was so majestic She stood there and looked at me what seemed like a long time

Was awaken by the sounds of Elk boggling. Amazing. Caught several Fish and enjoyed them for dinner. Had such a great time went back in October to celebrate my birthday

Dispersed Lakeside sites

Down HWY 322, there are 3 primitive sites along side the El Vade Lake. Well marked and easy to find. No facilities. First come first serve, but we didn't see a soul the whole weekend. Sites aren't well established, so you will have to clear a spot. Road is pretty rough and narrow. There is a walk to the lake with no paths. Lots of weeds and plants that will stick to you and your pups. Little shade available. Make sure to grab a permit and have cash - cost is $10 a night per car.
