This campsite is on Don Pedro Lake and is good for use if you want to utilize the lake. The campsite itself has a woodsy setting. Each site has a fire pit and bench. The site we had (A8) was relatively private and had lots of shade and protection from the wind. The website is very good and provides pictures and a rating for each site indicating whether there is shade, whether the sites are level, etc. Downside to the campsite are as follows: Marina/general store is about 1.5 miles from the boat launch, 1.25 miles from the campsite which is inconvenient especially if you are towing a boat; hilly and steep in areas -not toddler/kid friendly; no pets and no view of the lake from the campsite. Campsite itself was pretty nice, but the inconvenience of having the boat launch so far from the marina/store and campsite was problematic and inconvenient. We will probably not return for that reason. - tagalongwife

The difference between a privately run campground and a city/county park is obvious when entering the fairground CG. The park is self check-in with no assistance or help. The CG is confusing in its lay out and probably makes sense but not to us. Asphalt roads with all grass sites, the hook-ups are confusing. The grass had not been cut in weeks and lots of deferred maintenance. The location is quiet at night with good access to the city. Because of its location and lack of options in the area we would return. - sjones

This place offers many different types of sites and utility options. We stayed in the area behind the grandstands had 50 amp with water and sewer. The site was fairly level with the open field in front that was rather bumpy to drive through. There are no views of anything, however lots of area to walk a dog. - illini777

Stayed in advance of the Strawberry Music Festival near Tuolumne, arriving on A Wednesday afternoon. First come-first served, envelope system for payment. Full hookups and wonderful water.
The upper RV sites are in shade and pretty level in an open, park-like setting. There were a few other campers nearby, all music festival attendees.
Fine place to camp: easily accessible off the highway and close to town for all our shopping needs in advance of a 4-day music event. - ReggieK

We stayed at the end of September in the Iron Horse campground. Most of the sites (75%) were empty save for a few boaters. The sites are mostly level and very deep (50-60 feet) and there are several pull-through sites. The camp host is very friendly and even offered free firewood. Weather was perfect (low 80s), little or no wind, and no bugs. A few sites have great views of New Melones Lake. Little or no shade anywhere, but not a problem this time of year. - M_i_k_e_y

This is a beautiful and peaceful campground right on the lake. We dry camped here. It is nice if you're self contained. The bathrooms were not available and they had port-a-potties by the restrooms. The water is great for swimming, fishing and boating, although they did have a problem with leaches when we were there, so just something to be aware of. The rangers and camp host are really nice and helpful. Lots of wildlife and beautiful area in California with a convenient store/ gas station at main road and grocery store in Angels Camp couple miles down the road with Redbox rentals and other goodies. - Runluv

Camped in 35' motorhome in site #55. Pros - - Super quiet - can only hear the osprey, turkeys and other wildlife - Our space was level and spacious - space between sites is more than generous - Amazing views of the lake and forested areas. - Camp Host is super helpful - he and his wife work hard to keep the sites clean and all new campers greeted and settled. - Very reasonable cost - Lots of wildlife - from the nearby osprey nest to turkeys, deer and lots of other birds. - Very convenient to Emmett's Pass and Columbia Historic State Park. Cons - - No hookups though water faucets are all over. We don't care as we are self-contained but some may want electric and/or water. - Gina A

The park is clean, friendly, funky gold country historical park but there are a few things that keep me from a better review. Not dog unfriendly but definitly not a dog happy park, very small area to walk and a small poop area. Any longer walks around the park are prohibited to dogs. You can't safely walk down to the State Park, the road is too dangerous. The main issue I have is your DL/ID is photocopied on entry plus you're issued a wifi id code that is unique to your own name and address. I've never been in a park ever that wanted to photocopy my info, plus be personally identifiable to your name/addr for wifi. I was assured it is never used but how do I know for sure? Very unsafe in these times. - Jerry B

Enjoyed this park very much. Very friendly staff and it was a pleasure to stay. Loved the park offering free hotdogs and smores. Move very slowly in park. Very tight turns. - Felix Locum

Family friendly park. Spots are pretty close to each other but we didn't feel cramped, and staff was very helpful in parking our trailer. We felt right at home here, enjoyed the amenities, especially the Friday hot dog/chili. We ended up meeting folks from an RV club who invited us to join them and we had a lot of fun. I would definitely return when staying in this area again. - Off_we_go

This RV Park has gone downhill since our last stay here. Sites are unpaved; ours has had erosion & was so un-level that leveling wasn't possible. There appears to have been no maintenance on the sites themselves for years. Worst of all, our RV club arrived with more than 10 RVs, only to be told upon arrival that on our second day here, power would be shut off throughout the RV park from 9 AM - 5 PM the next day. They had known about this for more than a week, but did NOT advise RVers with reservations that we would be paying for power for an entire day when there would be no power. - jobriant

We had a good time because of the folks we were with. And it was close to Columbia--a very cool place to visit. Also, if you are in the area, make sure you visit Sonora. However, I cannot recommend the park for the following reasons: 1. Very, very, VERY run down. Nothing seemed in good repair. 2. Cable was "out" and there were no plans to repair it since it was too expensive. 3. The owner gave our phone number to another camper because the other camper thought one of our friends broke his tail light when leaving. This was a non kosher move. I had to leave our phone number as part of the check-in process. He had no business giving it out to another--for any reason. 4. Nothing but some folding chairs and an old pool table in the "clubhouse." 5. The only TV that was available was in the laundry room. 6. No fire pits, though that's OK since Calif is full of "no burn" days. 7. Wi Fi was non existent. Had to use my phone's hot spot for internet access. 8. The campground has trees in the middle of the road. They are pretty, but pose obstacles that make it a challenge to navigate around as we attempt to back in. - GilesScott

.Maintenance is lacking in the park. This literally is in a quarry. All dirt sites. Lots of shade trees in bottom section, but few where we stayed. Nice desk folks. Would not stay here again . - Joyce Denke

This is my second time staying here in July 2019. The staff is incredible. When I made my reservation with Jen I also met her when I checked in. I love the showers. They are very clean. I was able to pick the same site that I had before. I look forward to seeing Julie and Caleb again this trip. I just can't say enough good things about this place. - Dennis Russell

Somewhat disappointing. The staff was friendly, but the park needs considerable work. Granted I was there after a large storm hit CA, but even given that, the park is rundown. (It is really a 3.5 star park, not 4. But given that much of the damage to the park was from a recent storm, it did not seem fair to mark them as a 3 even though that is its current condition.) It is NOT a 9.5 or even a 9 as per the Good Sam rating, in my opinion. It is more like an 8 when compared to other parks. Issues this "resort" needs to improve on. #1- They need to hire a Gardner. The grounds are in desperate need of care! ALL of the trees and bushes needed to be trimmed. BE CAREFUL where you drive with your RV or you will hit tree branches. #2- The roads and spaces are horribly damaged from rain. Yet again another park with "dirt and gravel" spaces instead of blacktop or cement. The spaces are very uneven and need fresh gravel! #3- Not BIG RIG friendly. The spaces are extremely narrow. If you have a new RV with huge slide-outs, you will not fit in most spaces. And those that you do, you will NOT be able to have a table alongside your rig. #4- Not dog friendly. No spaces for your canine friend to do his business and no pet bags, like almost every other park, to pickup his business with. #5- No enforcement of trash around full-time RV folks. They have a large number of permanent RV members. Many of those RVs have accumulated considerable "trash" around their RVs which makes the park look "getto" in places. Lastly, there are some positive factors. Friendly staff. Quiet area. They have a horseshoe pit and volleyball net. Also nice small areas for those with tents. (The tent areas seemed to be better kept then the RV spaces... or it could be those areas are just not used much, not sure). Two locations for Sewer connections to accommodate small and larger rigs. In conclusion, it is nice private park for what it is. It is better than many, but also worse then several... therefore I rate it just above average. CAUTION... NOT BIG RIG FRIENDLY. Many spaces too narrow for larger newer RVs. Be sure to relate size of your RV width. The spaces are long enough, but far too narrow!!! - Oregon_Adventure

We were there for a week of baseball games which was right next to rv park. There is grass and shade trees. Very large sites. Water sewer and electric 30 and 50 amp. There are restrooms with showers. Clean. For us it was perfect. We have stayed here before for baseball games. There are no other amenities. The fair grounds are next to campgrounds also. - Littlegrami

The men's bathroom was not clean except for the one day the caretaker cleaned it. It really needed daily cleaning. Park was OK. We were there for little league tournament. The park was right next to the ball fields, so worked for us. Roads were very dusty. There was hardly anyone there. There are some full time live-ins. The sites if full would be close but hardly anyone stays there. I would stay again for a short period. - Littlegrami

$22 Senior rate can't be beat. ($25 regular) Grass sites that needed several boards to level but hookups were easy and I even found some shade. Famous Frog Jumping fairground, lots of Winery's and a quaint old town but the road - Hwy 49 - is not so 'friendly', be Careful. Easy access to Murphy, CA for a day of wine tasting. WiFi is a charge of $10 day but restrooms are fine and has shower. I get several antenna tv stations and phone service is good. Stayed 2 days and found this park very adequate on my way to Yosemite. - SailorGolf

This is a newly constructed park and it still shows. It is very easy to get into and out of the back-in spaces, but they feel a little close together. We were concerned it being a full park, and a casino destination, it would be raucous but it was absolutely quiet after 10pm. It is not directly adjacent to the casino or hotel so it feels like a fully separate RV park. It is a quick walk to the gas station that has tons of groceries/snacks, and even some RV stuff, like the coax cable we forgot to bring. - GSL

Nice new park. Easy to navigate. I had to change sites as the location of sewer was in poor location in back corner of site. Nice casino. Good location near Yosemite. - Danrenowine

Park is laid out perfectly! Large sites, all concrete roadways and sites, with trees interspersed and artificial grass. Very easy for any size rig. There is a beautiful salt water pool and hot tub, gorgeous lodge, and very nice bocce ball court. We found the staff to be very pleasant and helpful also. - thearys

Pine Mountain Lake is an expensive, exclusive retirement/resort community. It seemed obvious that their purpose in having a campground would be to attract friends of property owners & potential new members/owners. Apparently not so! When I made my reservations for May (in January) they insisted I pay in full, by check, not credit card, but then didn't cash the check for 2 months. It took 3 calls before I could get anyone to acknowledge they'd even received it. Upon arrival, the gatekeeper informed me that the campground wasn't part of the lake complex, but was 3 miles on down the road. When we got there, only 3 other sites were occupied & 2 of them not actually inhabited. The site we'd been assigned required a long twisting downhill back-in so we took a different one- no one noticed, there was no 'host' on site. After setting up our trailer, we went to the bathrooms (which seem to be located so as to be as inaccessible as possible from every site in the place) only to discover they had punch-code locks & we didn't have the code. No cell service in the park so we had to drive back to the gate keeper's den to get it. 2 Days later a company truck drove in, gave us a friendly wave & went down & changed the codes without telling us. Again, back to the dreaded gate keeper. No apology for the inconvenience this time either. That night a pleasant young man with a middle-european accent knocked to inquire "Please, how does one acquire the rest-room code?". Obviously it's a closely guarded secret. The park's in a pretty little valley with several creeks through it, but it was a mess. The only "maintenance" that appeared to have been done was to refill the TP & the paper towels in the restroom. The utilities are also on the wrong side for most of the hookup sites There were deer, squirrels, birds & a great nightly 'bat show'. The golf course was very nice, but $65 a round & slopes 133, so be prepared. It's an hour & a half drive to Yosemite Valley. This is a 'never again' place for us because of the (lack of) management issues. We shoulda known when my wife's cousin who lives there asked "Why'd you pick there instead of someplace nicer?". - gs2rt
