Clear Lake Campground is a small, vintage RV and tent campground, established in the 1950s. Camp right on Cache Creek, the only outlet of Clear Lake. The campground offers fishing, kayaking, and boating right from Camp. A car or boat is required to get to Clear Lake. For lake fishing, Redbud Park, Highlands Park and Austin Park are all within a ten minute drive from Camp. Austin Park also has a playground and swimming beach. The park offers rustic charm with great fishing and bird watching right from your campsite. We have a boat launch for your kayak, canoe or motor boat and we have canoe and kayak rentals. Cool off in the small pool. Challenge your family to a ping pong tournament or corn toss game. Lake County guests enjoy stunning vistas, world-class wines, the largest freshwater lake in California, the cleanest air in the US and endless outdoor activities. Activities include fishing, birding, kayaking, biking, hiking and wine tasting. Our staff have been trained as tourism ambassadors and can help you make the most of your vacation. Travel trailers, campers, tents and RVs are all welcome. Most sites include water, sewer and 30 amp electric. Limited wifi. Campsites are hard packed dirt. We also have 3 partially-furnished canvas bell tents to make your stay even easier! Please note, our small vintage campground is best suited to smaller trailers and motor coaches. Sites range from 25-40 feet long and 18-24 feet wide. Please plan accordingly.

Creekside Back-in Site E/W/S - 40ft
Lisa welcomed us warmly and let us choose our own site. We chose a shaded spot, since it was a warm day. But listening to the bullfrogs along the creek made for a fun evening.

Awful location on a polluted creek
Just ok I went there not knowing about the algae bloom Locals live at the campsite They will encroach on your personal space No grass anywhere

Creekside Back-in Site E/W/S - 40ft
Have to drive 10-30 mins away just to access water for swimming because of the algae in the creek. On-site pool is only about 3 feet deep and is not in the best condition.

Lisa was an amazing host, very friendly & welcoming with clear instructions. The site is well maintained with up to date facilities. Loved being able to rent kayaks for a group of four.
