We have camped here on two different occasions and definitely will camp here again. The park is well maintained, the staff is very friendly and helpful. Most of the sites are shady and several have great views of the lake. It is a great place for family gatherings as they have RV sites, tent sites and cabins. The restrooms and showers are are clean but there is a charge for the showers. Through no fault of the park the WiFi was down (provider outage) and there is a small fee if you want to use it. This park is a little remote so cell phone coverage for Verizon was a little spotty. The lake provides really great fishing. Early in the season it is high enough to use their boat dock and they have boats for rent. Later in the season the water is really low but fishing from the shore provides really ice rainbow trout. We camped at Five Branches Camper Park in a Motorhome.

This is a very rustic campground, kind of like a National Forest Service campground except without the dust but with the nice addition of having full hookups and lots of trees. They’ve done a good job of graveling the roads to keep the dust down. The lake and river were extremely high making fishing along the lakes shore difficult unless you have a lake site. We were told when driving to the park NOT to go over the dam, that the south entrance to the park was difficult. We came in on the 501 going along the western side of the lake, and it was a very good dirt road, hard packed and not rutted. Later in the week we drove our jeep out through the south entrance of the park, and it was very rocky, steep, and rutted. The inside of our motor home would have looked like a tossed salad. If towing a car, you may want to unhook after coming off the main dirt road because that’s when it gets dusty coming down the last section of the hill. Our car looked like a sugar cookie. We were informed that no one is allowed to use their AC, luckily it wasn’t hot, and there was always a breeze coming off the lake so it didn’t matter. Also, ask them where the electrical box is located. You may need an extension cord since some of the boxes are located on the opposite side of where your power connects to your RV. No problems with the voltage, water (used our regulator), and sewer worked well. Our site (27) was level, and we were able to get our dome satellite in. Verizon cell and Mi-fi wouldn’t come in, even using our antenna and signal booster. Verizon will work along the west side of the lake. The parks wi-fi was very weak at our site, and I had to go to the pavilion to get a good signal. If I could change one thing about the park it would be wi-fi throughout the park. It really was a pain after a while having to tote my laptop up to the pavilion every day. While here the campground was never full. I can imagine it would feel cramped if it was full since there are a lot of sites. This was a really nice relaxing spot, and we never saw one mosquito. We would enjoy staying here again. Nice staff and a lot of happy campers. We camped at Five Branches Camper Park in a Motorhome.

This is a very nice campground situated on the banks of Lake Vallecito and intersecting with the Pine River. We booked a year in advance following last year's visit. This trip we were a little disappointed because the wild flowers and awesome landscaping had declined. Also, there were deep ruts in the roads and at some camp sites with standing stagnant water. It is still a beautiful park, but dropped from a 10 rating to an 8. It is very remote, quiet, but that also means it is a long drive to get any supplies or visit the nearest town. We camped at Five Branches Camper Park in a Fifth Wheel.
