The Cottonwood Campground, one of many, was very clean, green and quiet. We ran the point-to-point half marathon in the annual Mokelumne Trail Festival, which was staged in a grassy area across from the amphitheater. Gorgeous singletrack course! We bought our firewood from the store, within walking distance and appreciated being able to use the showers on the back of...

RV camping with full hookups is over $50 a night. If you want to fish, there is a fishing permit fee of $5.50 per day (in addition to the CA fishing license). Boats, extra cars, extra people, dogs, etc.... all have an extra fee. Ice at the marina was $9 for a 20 pound bag of ice. If you want...

I recently camped here with my husband and our two children (a 1-year-old and a 4-year-old) from Sunday-Tuesday and we had a great trip! I had never camped here, but after hearing great reviews from other friends and family I wanted to try it out. I'm glad we did and I can't wait to go back! When we arrived to...

First time campers at Lake Camanche. Our son wanted to celebrated his birthday by camping, we stayed 2 nights at the Moccasin campsite site. Great location for views, kids were able to walk down to water for some fun and fishing. Everything was close by the campsite: store, playground, restroom, showers, laundry and cleaning station. We enjoyed every moment, son...

This is my eight time at Lake Camanche South Shore with a campsite in the Monument RV loop. The sites were all recently repaved and in very good condition. We stayed in Site #92 which backed up to the lake and had a large grass area with shade trees behind our RV which was a plus for the kids who...

This is one of the cheaper campgrounds we stayed in in California, and for the price we got the most here out of any of the campgrounds we stayed in in California. There is plenty of space, clean toilets, and a sink for washing up (this is rarer than you'd think). The staff are very nice and the location is...

We stopped by to just look around. We went to the North Shore area. Kinda looking around for more places to kayak. Haven't been here for 30 years. Pretty much the same except the water level is down. The attendant at the gate was kind enough to give us a 30 minute pass to cruise around. Went down the big...
