Like most COE campgrounds, this one is well off the beaten path. Twenty miles from Chowchilla. Avenue 26 out of town is very rough. Have to run slow! We stayed 8 days over the Labor Day weekend and the place was packed till Monday then we were one of only two people there. It was wonderful! Our site was hard to level the unit but a lot of them were more level. Big site with awning over the big picnic table. Nice fire ring. Our cell service (Verizon) and hotspot worked well. The Volunteers were GREAT! We saw them patrol the park regularly and very friendly. The park is also patrolled by the Sheriffs department. (I was stopped and warned for not using my seat belt.) Morgan, the park Ranger was more then helpful. He spent more then 30 minutes standing in the hot sun telling us about how the water level fluctuates more than 40 feet during the year. No sewer but the dump station was convenient and easy to use. My only complaint is the big scratches down the side of my unit. My RV is 13ft tall and the branches are only 12ft off the ground. Make sure you have all the supplies you need. It is twenty miles to town. We camped at Codorniz Recreation Area Campground COE in a Motorhome.

This campground is well kept. It has some 50 amp sites which is helpful when you stay there in the middle of summer like we did (testing out a new motorhome). There are a few sites with full hook ups. We camped at Codorniz Recreation Area Campground COE in a Motorhome.

This is a beautiful park indeed IF you want to get away from the city and enjoy the great outdoors. Facilities were spotless. All hookups were fine. The price is great. Dump station is easy to use. There is plenty of hiking, walking and fishing to keep you busy. Be prepared for: rough roads going out to the park, no wifi, very sketchy wireless service and active rattlesnakes. Just be prepared. We stayed here for 8 days and enjoyed everyday knowing that you must be vigilant and watch the trail or road in front of you. This campground would be a 10 if the roads were a bit better getting there. Its worth the trip!! We camped at Codorniz Recreation Area Campground COE in a Motorhome.

This is a beautiful campground atop a hill overlooking the lake. The area is rolling hills full of wildflowers and falcon nests. Antenna is good, Wi-Fi is good when it works. AT&T and Verizon signals fluctuate, hotspots are not reliable. There is absolutely no traffic noise. Wildlife abounds with howling coyotes, turkeys, falcons, gophers, bunnies, and tons of birds. The only disruption are the weekenders that descend on the campground and party all night until they leave on Sunday. We camped at Codorniz Recreation Area Campground COE in a Fifth Wheel.

This was a very pleasant campground, but trees and location meant no view of the lake. Had no trouble getting satellite reception, but no cell service at all. I had a full hookup site for the price shown with a senior federal pass. I only spent one night because of the lack of cell service, but would come back again. We camped at Codorniz Recreation Area Campground COE in a Motorhome.

This is a Corp of Engineer campground on Eastman Lake about 20 miles outside of Chowchilla. The rate reflects a dry camping site with a federal senior discount card. We chose the dry camping site since it is one of the few sites that have a view of the lake. Most sites do not. The reservoir is very low, so it is a ways away. The road in is rough, as pointed out by a prior reviewer, but not that bad. Most of the roads in California are in very bad shape now. However, do watch the railroad crossing; it gave us a good bump. As noted, there are hookup sites of varying kinds. When we were there, we had only dozen other campers, so lots of room. Many of the sites are very, very sloped where we would not be able to level. Our Verizon phone worked on and off. The data did not work at all. Most of the sites would not have a problem getting satellite. There is not a lot to do, so go if like the peace and quite and nice dark skies. We will definitely stay here again if in the ares.

This is a very nice COE park BUT the roads in (Avenue 26 and some of Road 29) are horrible!! We will not stay here again only because of them. Once you get onto park property, the roads to and in the campgrounds are good. Now, about the campground...we had an electric/water site only but there are about 5 sites with sewer. We were right across from the bathhouses so there was no problem there. Bathhouses are clean; one shower per side (male/female). No Verizon service until you get back to Chowchilla. Apparently, AT&T is the phone service of choice in this area. There is wifi service at the check-in area. Each campsite has a fire ring and picnic table and many have roofs over the tables. Although most sites have trees, we didn't see any what you would call "shady sites" as we drove through. As I said, we liked this COE park a lot but will not visit again until roads are improved, especially Avenue 26. BTW, Save Mart right at Exit 170, is a lovely grocery store and had delicious mussels!! We camped at Codorniz Recreation Area Campground COE in a Fifth Wheel.

Nice clean park. Helpful people running the park. It is a Corps of Engineers park that exists for one reason: boating on the lake. There are no swimming areas. The campground is basically bare with no shade. There is plenty of space between sites. I did not notice any pull-throughs but there are a -few- full hookup sites. The rest are power and water only. So if you have a boat you'll like it. Otherwise there is nothing to do. There is nothing to do in the area other than that and it doesn't seem to be close to any other attractions. It's too far from Yosemite and Kings Canyon to use as a base. We camped at Codorniz Recreation Area Campground COE in a Motorhome.

Another wonderful COE campground where some of the sites have water and electric though the ones by the lake do not have power. Good price with National Park Senior Pass, though we didn't understand why this COE is more than the others we have stayed in and usually pay $10. The sites are nicely separated, paved, and have good power and water. Lovely walking trails and good bass fishing in the lake if you like to fish. Restrooms were a bit dated but clean. Friendly hosts and ranger. We wish we could have stayed longer, and will return if in the area. We camped at Codorniz Recreation Area Campground COE in a Fifth Wheel.

Staff and camp host were very friendly and helpful. We had to choose another site because the one reserved had been listed incorrectly on the Recreation.gov website as having power (it had none). Rolling hills, views of the lake, clean restrooms and showers. We camped at Codorniz Recreation Area Campground COE in a Motorhome.

One of our best campground. Nature, calm, no noise, wildlife. Rangers are more than kind. He brought us marshmallow for the fire, he show us some spot with his car. We really had very good time. Sites are clean and have lot of space. Perfect place. We will come again. Children friendly. We camped at Codorniz Recreation Area Campground COE in a Motorhome.

I live approximately 30 minutes from Eastman Lake, and this is the campsite I visit the most. There is a lot of wildlife in the area. The rangers and volunteers are very nice and helpful. The campgrounds and restrooms are always clean. There are a lot of hiking trails around the area. We don't camp here as much in the summer months due to the heat, and the need to hike a bit to the water for swimming. There are also rattlesnakes in the summer. Overall though, a great place to camp in the non summer months, even through winter. We camped at Codorniz Recreation Area Campground COE in a Motorhome.

We rate this an primitive "8" . It is a quite campground where you will see deer, bobcat, eagles, and numerous coyote during your stay. We prefer to dry camp in sites 5-7 and 9-11. Most of these have a view of the lake. This is one our favorites in the fall, winter, and spring. Summer is HOT! We camped at Codorniz Recreation Area Campground COE in a Motorhome.

My wife and I like this spot for it's closeness to our home (30 mins.). Beautiful area of rolling foothills, quail and coyotes at night. Peaceful and quiet on all the trips we have gone. Have been there in groups and solo, all have been enjoyable. Gave it an 8 because they need to add more hook-up sites. Decent fishing spot as this is considered a "Trophy Lake" for bass.

Codorniz Campground at Eastman Lake near Chowchilla is a COE campground. There are 66 sites though only a few with full hookups. Sites that provide sewer hookups are close together while other sites are spread out over rolling, oak-studded hills, spaced far apart. What might be called pull-throughs were more of pull-outs along side of road, none with hookups. Interior roads are paved as are the parking pads, most are quite level. Outside area is graveled and consists of a table and combined bbq/fire pit. There is also a metal pole on which a lantern could be hung. Only a few of the sites are directly on the lake shoreline though the lake can be seen from many of the sites. There is a playground for children near the center of the campground. Three restroom facilities with showers with hot water served the campground. Fishing enthusiasts say the lake is a good place to fish. Several TV stations can be accessed via antenna. Definitely a campground and not a resort. Peaceful and quiet and nice for watching and listening to the birds. If were WiFi accessible, would have rated a 8 as a campground. We camped at Codorniz Recreation Area Campground COE in a Motorhome.
