“White Trash.”
Reviewed September 12, 2011

This was once a good camp ground. Key word "Once" It is now a hangout for White Trash. The restrooms are a bio hazard. Toilets over flowing on the floor, even crap on the walls. Party camp ground. Fights and loud music. Band played till midnight. That didn't stop the partying till 3/4 am. Rude people. I had the feeling everyone was looking for a fight. Scary place. Not for familys. I will never, ever go back. I might as well spend the weekend at a prison.

“I love Rollins Lake”
Reviewed September 12, 2008

I Love Rollins Lake!!! Usually the friends go camping. But next time I'm opting for a Vacation Rental. Jacuzzi tub just sounds too good. I found the cutest house, super close to the lake. So I'm saving up and recruiting some friends.
www.rollinslakegetaway.com is where I found that cute little yellow house. Can't wait to go.

“Lovin it”
Reviewed July 25, 2006

Are family had a great time at Rollins Lake, as a kid my family used to come to Rollins Lake because my Grandmother had a cabin in Alta and every day we would hook up our boat and drive to the Lake for the day. I can not believe how many people know about this beautiful lake. I was hoping that it would be a secret, but like any other lake in California it has become one of the best known secrets. We will continue our family tradition because we love it here.

Sincerely,

Loven Life
