1 Park near Nicolaus, California
May 2015 - $1.00
This is a pretty lake location. It is nestled in a quiet area. The camp ground surrounds the private lake, which I am guessing is actually an irrigation pond.
There are rv and dry camping tent sites here.
There are two rv areas. The one at the back side of the lake is nice, and was completely full when I got here at 6 pm on a Friday.
The front area has tiny RV spaces. The parking conditions reminded me of an RV storage area. A number of campers have expanded into 2 spaces.
I actually pulled into a space backwards (front in) so that I wouldn't be so close I could reach out and touch my neighbor from my main door.
I have a 24 foot conversion Van with no slides. I can pull in just about anywhere. While I was on a walk past the office I saw a gentleman with a big motorhome who had driven the park unable to find a space he could fit in.
i am here for one Friday night as an overnight stop on a long trip. I would not recommend this park, at least not on a busy weekend, unless one gets here mid week to secure a nice spot.
I camped here on a Thousand Trails membership. - StormRunner

Rate was a member rate. This campground is all about the lake and on any given day there are several people fishing and swimming. The other draw is nearby Sacramento. Downtown is about 30 minutes away and the airport is even closer. There are two primary campgrounds. One is the old, original campground. It is tight with, basically, two RVs sharing a spot big enough to be one small campsite. Not only are the conditions crowded, but several rental cabins have been put on the spots nearest the lake. This section, right by the entry has not one, but two activity buildings, a weekend restaurant, mini-golf, has full hookup sites, and a laundry. There are also signs posted everywhere that electrical voltage is low in that section. The other RV campground is on the far corner of the property (there are also a couple of tenting areas). This campground is the mirror reverse of the other campground. There are no amenities aside from the restrooms. The sites are somewhat larger, they are only water/electric, and the electric works fine (although it is also only 30 amps). Coming and going from this area of the campground is a bit tedious because the road is one way around the lake and the speed limit is 5 mph. That may not sound like much but after a while it gets tiresome to creep in and out for every trip. We had a full scale Verizon 4G cell and data signal. The campground is surrounded by walnut groves and farmland and for years the lake has been a draw to folks wanting to get out of the city. - nazpaz
