The place was beautiful. Nice lake, well kept property. We didn’t really have any interaction with the host other than a phone call to help with directions. If you’re pulling a trailer, make sure you understand how to get there.

Awesome campground! Had great weather for end of October camping. Absolutely loved the reservoir. We enjoyed paddle boarding and fishing it.
It was difficult to initially book a spot online because there isn’t a map. So I took a picture and attached it to this! Hope it helps someone else out.
The road to get there from Apple Hill was a bit scary. Very windy road and bridge. I wouldn’t recommend trailers or large vehicles take this road. Beautiful drive though. There is another way there around placerville.

I asked if there was electricity and was told yes. No host. Not what I was expecting. Took me one hour to get to campsite. I had no clue there was no water electricity or sewer. No one was there. I left, felt very vulnerable.
