The vibe at Ice House Campground
Drop some Ice House Campground knowledge on us.
If you like boats, boating and boat people, this place if for you. If you like a little bit of quiet, peace and non-belligerent sunburned boozed up bros, keep it moving down the road to any of the hundred other amazing grounds in El Dorado National Forest.
I have camped here as a kid with my parents. Know the place pretty well. Beautiful campground, great trout fishing, and best of all, it's peaceful. Occasionally you might get some other campers near you, but they will not be a bother. Besides, it's not too often at all. Beautiful place to hike wherever you feel like. If you ever get the opportunity, I recommend this place. I know I will be going again.
This was my first time camping at Ice house. We went Sunday-Tuesday During Memorial day Weekend. I thought Sunday night would be packed since the campground was fully booked. I was happy to find the sites were very spread out so it didn't feel crowded at all! We stayed at site 57 the first night and site 55 the next night. Both were a short walk to the water and close to the toilets.
On Monday we took our kayaks out on the lake which was a lot of fun. The water was calm and there was very few people on the water. Later that day a thunder storm rolled in and it rained for about 2 hours so we drove to the nearby Ice House Resort and played pool until the sun came out.
Overall the lake was beautiful and the sites were spacious and clean.
