When we camped here in our 30 ft Class C in early November 2013, we were one of only three campers. I agree, sites are mostly not level and most do not have water and electrical hookup. Through careful maneuvering, I was able to find a relatively level pull-thru avoiding the large rocks guarding the asphalt mentioned in earlier reviews. There is a two hole dump located on the way out of the park with potable water. I'd stay here again even if I couldn't get a site with water and electric. Friendly pistol toting staff met us at the entrance gate! Definitely not for big rigs or rigs with toads. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Beautiful! Would definitely like to visit again. Not "on" the lake but great views, can walk to lake. Kind of nice so all can enjoy, not just those "on". Nice friendly employees, checked on us twice in an evening. At this time of year, was very quiet, had our choice of spots. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We stayed here for a night on our way north. It's about 5 miles off the freeway to the east. It's on a lake, and we got the space #5. It will fit a 40 ft motorhome and a toad. You will have to dump at the entrance as there is not sewer at the sites. As a previous poster noted, the rocks are big and you have to be careful going around them to get to your site. Our biggest problem is most of the sites are not level. Be prepared to jack up your rig to get fairly level. The views of the lake and the surrounding mountains are beautiful. I understand this park is very popular during the summer season. Would pass on this park next time in the area because of the problems of getting level. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We stayed here off-season and had the place to ourselves. It is gorgeous. It has clean and secure restrooms/showers. Not at all what I expected at a State Park. The main reason that I am posting this review is to warn others about the rocks. Before we stayed there, I read a review about the park where someone mentioned that they had to move boulders to get through. I can see this to be true now. The park is pretty tight and the addition of decorative rock to the landscape has made it almost treacherous in spots. Be sure to scout your spot before entering. We had a very close call when trying to park at one spot, and I did end up taking a crowbar to move a gigantic rock out of the way of our tires. The rocks appear to be a barrier of sorts but they can cause a lot of damage. We met the ranger on duty and he was very friendly. The park is a bit of a drive from the highway, 9+ miles, but if you want scenery and recreation, this is your spot! Very nice, clean campground. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Excellent campground! Toilets/showers looked like new and showers were free. Many sites were a bit out of level and some have rocks outlining the site that must be watched out for. Only 1/3 of the sites have hookups. Dump station is right across the street. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
What a gem! Spacious sites with the greenest grass at each site. Cleanest campground, state park or private, we've seen. They even pressure wash the sites after visitors leave! Clean, private restrooms and showers. Utilities sometime on the wrong side but that is a minor inconvenience. I would definitely stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
I have to agree with some of what the previous reviewer says, however, it didn't adversely affect our visit. It is a little Oasis on an otherwise desert lake. A very nice place to stop for the night. Other campgrounds in the area a seriously lacking and this is paradise in comparison so we weren't hyper-critical with the little things. We had electric and water and the dump station is conveniently located on the way out to the highway (I-15). Need a place to stay for the night and even put your feet in the lake: this might be it for you as well. Just be sure to make advance reservations. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
As noted, a neat, well maintained park, but it is tight and very poorly designed. Utilities are backward from the signed traffic pattern, and are on the extreme front or back end of the site. Also, they have recently (while I was there) placed very large rocks (boulders) at the very edges of the pavement, making the pull throughs very difficult for egress and exit because the pads are on a severe arch. I had to move one rock and barely missed another getting in and out. I would not stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Beautiful, clean, well-maintained campground convenient to I-15. Sites are large with gravel parking, tent pad, grill, fire ring, grassy area plus concrete pad with table. We had a long back-n site with room for motor home plus car. Lots of space between sites and lots of trees. Easy access from I-15 via frontage roads but quite far east of interstate for quiet camping. Fishing and boating are quite popular. Small general store and restaurant on site. Would stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Arrived to a pay station and sign saying to fill out fee envelope before entering, but we couldn't fill out until we found a site. We drove through both sides of the park and found a back in site on top of the hill overlooking the lake. There are no showers in our area. The sites are spacious, somewhat level, with a large concrete pad. Sites have W/E only with a nice dump station. We arrived during the week and it was mostly empty. It apparently is full on the weekend, so suggest reservations. Hiking trail down to the lake and around to the boat launch is very nice. Was extremely windy the days we were here. We would return. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
The directions on ReserveAmerica take you to Oasis with a sign pointing down a dirt road to Painted Rocks. Do not take that road because it is about 20 miles long! Go back to the freeway and go to Levan and then go south on 28. We visited after Labor Day so there was no one at either gate to explain this to us. But I am so glad that we found Painted Rocks because it was awesome. All of the sites are very nice with water and 50 amp power. There is a nice dump station and convenient vault toilets. We stayed in site 12 and had a view of the lake. Most sites are level and large with a covered picnic table on a cement pad. The interior roads are wide and easy with a big rig. There are no showers, no trees, no laundry and no playground. But there is plenty of walking, hiking and fishing. The views are magnificent. Since it was late in the season we were the only ones there but I can imagine that in the summer on weekends especially it is very noisy when full. We camped here in a Motorhome.
There are two campgrounds suitable to tents, trailers, and motor homes at Yuba State Park in Utah. It is important not to confuse the Painted Rocks Campground which is on the east side of the lake with the Oasis campground on the west side, as access to the two campgrounds can be confusing for the first time visitor. The Oasis campground is easily accessed via I-5 however to get to Painted Rocks campground from the West entrance you will need to travel 12 miles on a gravel road. I highly suggest using the paved road access to Painted Rocks campground on the East side of the lake but you will have to leave I-5 some distance from the West Entrance to get there. Additional information is readily available through the Utah State Park web site. The sites are well spaced with many providing a nice view of the lake. This park has few trees and virtually no shade. However each site has a covered picnic table providing shelter. Boaters can launch just 1/2 mile down a paved road to the lake. Reservation can be made via the Utah State Park web site or Reserve America which is tied into the State system. The restrooms do not provide "Flush" toilets but are very clean. Of the 77 sites available, 29 are listed as "Partial Hookup" which means 50 amp service if you need it and water. The campground host did mention that if washing cars to wipe immediately as the local water does have a tendency to leave "water marks". We enjoyed our stay. The park is like many other State facilities in that it is normally very busy on weekends but much quieter during the week. There were only 4 other campsites occupied during our first week night visit there. We camped here in a Motorhome.
