This park is less than a mile off of I-80. It is a fairly new park that has been open only a few years. They have over 100 sites. We stayed in a back-in as that is the PA rate sites. They are 70 feet long, so enough we didn't have to unhook from our 5er when we parked. The roads are all wide paved as well as the pull-thrus. The back-ins are level gravel. There aren't many trees as this is the desert, but they are trying to grow more. Right infront of the park is a Wingers restaurant that has good food. This is an outstanding place to stop for the night as you travel I-80. We camped in a 42 fifth wheel.

Stayed here just one night. Super easy access from the highway. The checkin took only a few seconds and the staff was super friendly and treated us like we were regulars. The park roads are easy to navigate as this is a small park. We had a pull through that was narrow but no issues. One highlight of this park is the wifi....it is the fastest we have ever had. 25-30mbs. I wish all parks were like this. This is a great place to stop through and we will be back. We camped here in a 42' fifth wheel.

This was our first time staying at the Lake Minden TTs. Check-in was super fast and easy with the attendant already having our paperwork prepped. We found a nice site in Section D. All the sites in this section are angled so very easy to back in. This section is 30 amp and with water and the power is very smooth even during mid day with A/Cs running. All the individuals we interacted with were very friendly which is something we have grown use to at TTs parks. It does get hot as there doesn't seem to be much mid-day breezes. The lake in the middle of the park is a nice size and we kayaked on it a few times. Overall, the park is a good place to come to just rest as it is about 18 miles north of Sacramento. We will be back when passing through this area.

This is a very nice CG. The sites have the widest pads I have seen. This park is off the main road so it is very quiet except the wind that always blows. The Sacramento River is just across the road and is beautiful. The only bad thing as stated before is the last 2 miles of road into the park. It is very bump and narrow. If you go very slow it works. We will stay here again.

This is a nice campground. We just stopped for the night, but would like to spend a weekend here. Sites are level and well spaced. The power output is clean. The staff heats the water so the ground pipes stay unfrozen. This area gets much colder than the local area because of its location in the valley. Not an issue for us. The access road in is fine, but was snow covered, so be prepared in the winter months. The only down side is that their bath house is closed during the winter. Would stay here again.

Camped over a 3 day weekend. The full hookup loop is the only one open in the winter. The park is very clean. The water is clean and the power was very stable. We hiked many of the trails and throughout the other loops. There are lots of deer and other wildlife to see in the park. You have to drive from the CG to the entrance of lighthouse trail. There is a great town just before you get to the park that has some great seafood. The road into the park is narrow and curvy but no problem if you take it slow. Will be back again for sure
