    Default Waterfront camping

    What other lakes besides CFW allow camping and boat docking anywhere along the shore and are hotboat friendly?

    I know you can boat camp at Don Pedro, but due to the size of the lake the surface conditions may not allways be friendly. I've taken my Cole there on ocassion, and never had a problem with the LEO's.

    Englebright has boat camping... It's hotboat friendly. The ramps there are so steep and you have to walk a good distance to drop off your truck. Over all its a cool lake. Its about about 45 minutes out of Marysville east. Have fun Jim

    Greenhorn is nice. Long Ravine on Rollins has waterfront tent camping sites and they have slips if you are camping in an RV.

    Although a lot of these lakes have waterfront camping I am not sure you can dock in your boat anywhere along the shore the way CFW allows

    At Long Ravine you can anchor your boat in front of your site in the tent sites. Greenhorn is a nicer set up though. Call them and ask them.

    Default boatamping !

    trucks and trailers in the parking lot,but the water front with the campsite is yours to park boats,Greenhorn side.We had motorhomes on top and tents on the grass and all the lake front for our selves,At one time we had 8 or 10 flats there !Ask Hud here on the boards he and his Bride were there.

    Here is a good lake. Gets choppy late am, early morning. Great lake, won't hustle,you if you play right! Not sure about dock camping. May be at Nac., or South shore

    My thought was no boat ramp just load and unload anywhere along the shore. Our tent is made to fit in the back of the truck bed so keeping it all together would be preferred. Rollins sounds nice though. So, Greenhorn has reserved spots as well as first come first serve shoreline for tents? I am trying to figure a place to go this holiday weekend. Maybe others will want to go too?

    Spent today at Greenhorn without the boat, very nice. If you had a waterfornt site it would work out great. Seems they are booked up for Labor day weekend though. What about Union Valley or Whiskytown Lake?
