Tiptoe around Sly Creek Campground and you’ll find many secluded beaches and choice fishing spots along the reservoir. Take advantage of amenities like a car-top boat launch and cleaning stations to catch rainbow trout, brown trout and brook. If you have a thing for old post offices, check out one in nearby Strawberry Valley and send some snail mail. It’s been in service since 1855.

Small, not too private camp sites. I've read that you don't want to go looking for peace and quiet as there is off roading nearby (motor bikes) but I went in the off season and it was super quiet. Maybe I got lucky 😜

the reservoir is gorgeous turquoise and blue and very peaceful.
