Pardee Lake Camping is a peaceful, quiet experience, perfect for seniors and families, offering 141 oak-shaded camp sites with picnic tables and fire rings in two separate campgrounds available on a first-come, first-served basis.
The Lakeview campground is closest to the marina area, with a short walk to showers, laundry room café, restrooms and swimming pools (there’s no swimming allowed in the lake), while the Oaks campground is more secluded.
Two ADA, wheelchair-accessible sites are also available. Over 50 RV sites with full hookups come with picnic tables, fire rings and fully electrical, water, and sewer connections. RV Park guests can also enjoy a new group gathering area.
Please remember, this is a no-body contact lake, which means that no swimming, jet skis or wading is allowed. Learn more about Pardee Reservoir’s amenities and attractions. If you’re looking to camp at a lake you can swim in, consider neaby New Hogan or Camanche.
