I tent camped here for 4 days w my family and 3 dogs in September during labor day weekend. It was a nice really decent size campsite with plenty of space and privacy from the surrounding campsites. The only negative experience was the irritating noise from the RV generators all night long, and the guy who wouldn't give up the bongo playing and go to bed. The camp host was helpful and friendly. I would stay here again, but not during a holiday weekend.
East lake is our favorite of the two lakes on newberry volcano. The campsites are nice and big, bathrooms are ok, and it has a better swimming area for kids and family then paulina does. There's a store and a resort on the lake. Lots of hiking trails. It was packed though only downside.
Camped for the august meteor shower. Were right on the beach. So lovely. Would make this my happy place
