Lots of wide open space. Too hot in the summers to camp, but spring and fall is awesome. Camp spots are little to close in my opinion. When the lake is full it has some nice views. Great for fishing, and the lake is pretty big so on the usual day it is not to busy. Roads in good condition, sites are kept up and clean. Shower and bathroom are moderately clean and there is good pressure and hot water. Beware of the few speedster boats. We camped at Glory Hole Rec Area / Big Oak Campground in a Tent.

We stayed at Glory Hole Rec Area / Big Oak Campground for 3 nights while attending the Calavaras County Fair/Frog Jumping weekend. The campground is about 15 minutes from the fairgrounds. The camp sites are fairly good in size (we stayed in site 111) however, there is little to no shade. The weekend we spent there it was over 105 F. and could use a few trees. AC and a good generator allowed us to stay. There are no full hook-up, and water connections are not very friendly for filling your rig. There is a nice new dumping station but, it is closed until sometime in 2009. As of May 2008, the water is very low at the lake and the swimming areas is basically dirt so, there is no place for kids to swim. We camped at Glory Hole Rec Area / Big Oak Campground in a Travel Trailer.

This is a lovely BLM campground at New Melones Lake Recreation Area between Sonora and Angels Camp on Hwy 49. Boat rentals are available for fishing and there are several places from the shore to fish as well - we caught a couple of nice trout. There is a free dump station at the sister campground called Tuttletown Recreation area which is a few miles south on Hwy 49. Camped here in a Class C. We camped at Glory Hole Rec Area / Big Oak Campground in a Motorhome.

This is operated by the US Bureau of Reclamation. New Melones Lake has two recreation areas as the lake spans two counties. The Glory Hole Recreation Area in Calaveras County has two campgrounds Ironhorse and Big Oak. The sites are big and paved. Each has views of the lake and surrounding hills. This is a very popular lake for boating and fishing. It has a large marina and many boats and jet skis for rent. There are also 18 miles of mountain biking trails. We would stay here again. We camped at Glory Hole Rec Area / Big Oak Campground in a Travel Trailer.
