We have been camping at Lake San Antonio for 25 yrs. Best tent camping, lakefront, launch the boat and anchor it right in front of your tent till your ready to leave!!! Best wakeboarding ​and skiing ever.

Summer should be amazing! This is a great lake for boating, swimming and water skiing. The campgrounds are nice too and the place has alot of deer, bald eagles and other wildlife as well I hope it opens soon to be fully operational as it wasn't for a long time because they allowed too much water out from the dam....

This Lake used to be amazing, but the last time we went to visit, it was closed due to California's drought. When it is open, it's fun.

This our favorite place for camping and boating. The lake has been low but it hasn't stopped the kids and their friends from having a great time camping and boating. The camp sites offer full hooks up to dry camping. We arrive on Sunday and staying during the week. The lake is empty and the kids are able to use... More

There is no lake right now. It is like a dry bed with a creek running through it. We used to go to Lake San Antonio several times during the summer to swim, camp, and fish. You can't really do any of it now.

We live nearby Lake San Antonio and were shocked that there was no water in the lake!! The entire park and lake were deserted like a ghost town. We've never seen it like this and hope California gets a generous amount of rainfall this year. I don't know what they'll do for the triathlon Wildflower Festival that is held here... More

My husband is not a camper. Having grown up camping I miss the experience. Extended family and friends were going camping in RVs for the President's day weekend and I decided to rent one of the modular homes on the South shore of the lake so that we could join them. The units were very reasonably priced and quite roomy.... More

Lake San Antone, what I call it, is nothing less than awsome. It's a place where you go with your family and enjoy the outdoors. No news, no tv, no movies. Somewhere you go and do nothing or everything, away from it all. Amenities are at hotels and luxury resorts, my friends, this is camping! Pull up, pitch a tent,... More

Taking the road up from Hwy 1, the winding Nacimiento Road, thus alone is a rememberable trip. We visited with friends -- who camped out at Lake San Antonio -- before going on to King City.
