Positives: Small and wonderful lake for fishing, kayaking, boating, and swimming. The majority of campsites seemed to be shaded. Lakeside campsites provide fairly easy access to the lake. Wonderful ice cream at the store for cheap! In general, the campground staff was friendly and helpful. Negatives: Camped here during Labor Day weekend (mistake). It was way too crowded. Loud campers with no camping etiquette all around us made for a less than pleasant experience. Only a small handfull of sewer sites throughout the campground for RV'ers. WiFi and cell phone coverage is only available around the store; it does not reach the campsites.
One of our family's favorite RV resorts! We have stayed here multiple times and have never been disappointed. This is a large resort with a lot of activities for families. Hookups are well maintained. Sites are also very level. Easy, scenic walk or bike ride to the ocean and beach, as well as Pismo beach town shops.
Great RV resort conveniently located just across the street from the beach and only 5-10 minutes from Lake Tahoe casinos. Hiking and bike trails are close by. The resort is very clean. Friendly staff. Sites are pretty level and well maintained. A few areas of the park are pretty tight for larger rigs due to the large trees all around, but just take it slow and you will be able to navigate through. Be sure to bring jackets, sweaters, and have a heater because Lake Tahoe is at a high enough elevation that it can get pretty cold at night; especially, during the off-season. The least favorite part of the resort for us is that it is literally on HWY 50, so there is always the sound of vehicle traffic; it can be annoying during the middle of the night with semi-trucks driving by.
An easy drive from the Sacramento area for a quick get-away. I have been coming here since I was a kid. The individual experiences have literally ranged from exceptional to downright miserable; depending on how you camp. Overally, Camanche does not have a lot of shade, even though you can find a few spots that have trees with great canopy. Even though the sites do have full hookups, the sites are primitive and can be slightly un-level. However, not nearly enough to be discouraging. The lake is nice; however, the level has consistently been lowering over the years.
Very clean RV resort and friendly staff. They even assist you when backing into your site. The sites have just enough space to enjoy time sitting outside of your rig without disturbing your neighbors. Not much to do around the immediate area; however, it is only 40 minutes from Santa Cruz Boardwalk, 15-20 minutes from Gilroy. Would definitely stay here again.
