Two ways to camp here. With hook ups at a site a mile and a half from the water, or without hook ups down by the water with all the other 'campers'. We've done both. Wouldn't suggest hook up area for anything longer than 30'. Roads are tight and trees are low. Definitely need to bring leveling blocks with you. A little quieter here than down below. The parking for campsites is fairly level and paved. Keep in mind you'll be surrounded by tents, trailers, RVs, or even people sleeping in the back of their trucks. This place has been around for a long time and it shows. The showers and bathrooms are beat but functional. There is a store onsite but they charge obscene amounts for the basics ($8 for a 20# bag of ice). Rangers disappear after 11 pm and you're on your own. Weekdays that's not so bad, but Fri- Sun forget it. Avoid the hassle and come in on Sun and pull out by Fri. After 30 years of camping here with a large group of family/friends,I think we'll look elsewhere for our annual event. Bummer... We camped here in a Motorhome.
This campground features beautiful big trees and a wonderful lake. It is not like some lakes. Nacimiento Lake has lots of "fingers' so you can get out away from others into your own cove. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Too many kids with loud music, swearing, playing loud music, walking through the campsites and not being supervised. Many under-aged drinkers, not family oriented at all. Very disappointing. We camped here in a Tent.
