We camped here twice, the first time in mid-May 2015 and again in mid-July 2015. The first time we stayed in Camp (or gate) 2; the site we stayed in was fairly roomy, level and easy to back into. The second time we stayed in Camp 1 in the "group camp site" ( mainly because we made our reservation late and this was all they had). Many of the sites in this location were not easy to back into and the site we were assigned was very unlevel, so much so I couldn't level the trailer using all the tricks I knew. I went to the office, asked for and got an alternate site which was better. Later we walked around Camp (or gate) 1 and many of the sites were fairly unlevel, so consider this if you decide to stay here. The bathrooms are clean, there is a store in Camp 2 and a lake, which is part of the campsite. We saw lots of people who had brought boats, so if water sports are your thing, consider this site. The site is near the Empire Mines state park, the towns of Nevada City and Grass Valley, so there are plenty of things to do nearby. If you go there, I'd recommend camp 2. We camped at Scotts Flat Lake Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Scotts Flat is part of the local irrigation district and a cross between a private campground and a National Park campground. There are no hookups available, but clean showers and a dump station. Too book sites, you have to call the reservation number, which may take a few days for a return phone call. The place is very clean, dogs are allowed, but not in the water and the lake is beautiful. Lots of trees for shade and some privacy. The sites 1-9 down by the lake get crowded and people tend to pack them full or you can stay a short walk away and not quite as busy, but more sites per bathroom. Pretty small beach area, but easy to launch your boat. Great local restaurant right at turn off for casual dining. We camped at Scotts Flat Lake Campground in a Tent Trailer.
