We went there and were fortunate enough to see a herd of deers, birds, squirrels and other animals. There are tables and a lot of space to sit and just enjoy the green area. There is also an area where visitors are allowed to get in the water. Like in many other parks, there was a fee to get in... More

Stayed in San Luis Creek Cmpgrd. Sites nicely spaced with lots of pine trees, but spaces VERY short & all straight back ins, which is not a problem unless you have a long rig then manuerability is extremely tight especially if someone is parked right across from your site. We have a 30foot trailer which barely fit in the space.... More

Great place to let the dogs and kids run. What a nice relaxing area. The campsites are spread out and have fire pits so you can enjoy those s'mores! So grab your camping gear and drive 3 miles out of Santa Nella for a tranquil and quite stop.

We discovered this tranquil, open spaced property, about 8 yrs. ago, after staying in Santa Nella / Los Banos for the night. We have stayed up to 10 days in this area, between trips to Frisco & Carmel.... We have a dog so we're on the alert as to where we can exercise him when we're on the road. This... More

This was our 1st camping trip in 5 years and we had 5 kids between 3-5 yr old, I would say, going there was the best thing we did to take our hesitance of going out with kids OUT. We had a great time, the sites are large, with fire pit, picnic table and ample of space to put tents... More

We stopped on our way through to Yosemite at the Visitors Center up on the hill with ample parking for our RV towing an auto. The staff was very helpful and informative regarding the history of the Reservoir and the variation in a water levels. It is a great place for folks to camp and enjoy the water. It is... More

Liked: Clean, well-spaced, RV campgrounds near (upper and lower) lakes. Some sites near flush toilets, showers and dump stations. Disliked: Rates are too high for a State Park. Could stay at a private RV campground (e.g., KOA) for the same price.

A really good history lesson on the lake and the state water project. As fara as fishing.... I have never fished the reservoir, but, the water level is so up and down, there is no shore plant development... can't be all that goo fishing. The forebay is different . Relatively stable water level attractsa lot of fishermen

We like to get out of town once in awhile and this trip we deceided to go where there is water and out of the city. We loved the Motel 6 and we were surprised how new everything looked. The carpets were clean, walls looked clean and the bathroom was very clean. The bed was comfortable. We will go back!... More
