Great secluded campsite next to the reservoir lake. You will be camping under a century old oak tree. We had to pick the carts to move our gear up to the campsite. It was really easy walk 2min from the parking space. If you want quiet nights and in a private secluded camp, this is your site. Bring a stove if you want to cook in the site.

You will love Abuelo camp. It is at a close walk from the lake and you will be camping under a century old oak-tree with Spanish mossAbuelo camp faces south east. Perfectly located to enjoy the milky way at night, leave your rainfly out and sleep under the stars on a warm summer night.Abuelo camp provides enough flat areas for for 2 or 3 tentsSwim or kayak to the floating raft.

We had a great time at Abuelo camp. It was a last minute trip but worked out well. We went kayaking and swimming, grilled out in the communal grill area, and then stared at an amazing night sky from our campsite. Our dogs also loved it!

Abuelo camp is awesome. It's a spacious secluded spot on the way up to the water which is where we spent most of our time. If you're looking for a hike-in spot with great amenities around the property at your disposal, stay here! This spot does get a lot of sun, so come prepared.

Map upon entering the property is so great! Hike up to camp Abuelo Campactivity
