Outside of Kelseyville, Kelsey Creek is a huge campground surrounded by Clear Lake and the Kelsey Slough. (Which you can walk along on the Kelsey Creek boardwalk trail.)

This is the best place for fishing. Imagine waking up, walking 5 feet and watching the sunrise over Clear Lake while casting your line. There are also cabins and a group campsite on the western end of the campground. Contact the park if you're interested in staying there!

Report from your Shirtless Host on Clear Lake S.P. at Kelsey Creek Camp grounds!
I just spent 10 days in both camp sites 71 and 53 !!
71 and 70 have shade all day long and you can see the lake!
Site 53 has shade all afternoon
and you can see the lake alittle!
Clear lake S.P. has alot of plus and very few bad things any one can say about it !
This is a great park swimming, wild life all over the place fishing , hiking, bike rideing. Boating has a boat ramp. The swimming area is rope off and great for the kids l had a great time at the park!! So bring your family and friends and likes all go camping!!!
If you don't have a boat there is boat rentals near by in Lake Port!
I listed the camp sites l liked in my other review.

perfect campground to break up your trip from SF northward to parks like mendocino, humboldt, or king range. sites are clustered with tables, fire rings, and nearby restrooms+showers. $38/night, reserve online but note this means it fills up on busy weekends

Nice campground. Seen deer beside our site. Seen lots of turtles. Loved our walks. Other campers were nice. Only bad thing is raccoon thieves.
