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.

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.
