    We did Berryessa, looking for another lake. Any info on Don Pedro or Lake Nacimiento ?

    We have 2 young kids, so something kid friendly.

    Thanks!

    I don't really remember it being like that there.It has been a couple of years since we went there and we were prolly the loudest group there and that aint sayin much.

    They are both pretty close to Sac.Mellones is just outside Angels Camp and Hogan is in Valley Springs which isnt that far off of Hwy 99 @ Hwy 26.I will be out @ Hogan May 2nd 3rd and 4th with a bunch of others from over on banderlog.com you should come chk it out.

    norcal cat,
    For me, I'd make the trip to Antler's RV Park and Campground at Lake Shasta. It's a really nice campground with lots of things to do for kids. There's a pool, playground, Fri/Sat night movies on the deck, Sunday morning pancake breakfast and a noise curfew that's very well monitored.
    Here's the link to their website-

    Also, here's a link to New Melones-

    FYI on New Hogan. As of last weekend there is only one launch ramp open, or even in the water. Water is not going to improve unless we have one hell of a storm as the lake fills from rain only, no run off. Its a nice lake but very, very crowded on larger weekends - especially with only 1 ramp in use.

    I am only a few miles from Hogan but I agree with Cas and would check Shasta out for a big weekend like that.

    Maybe for the time being, I'll stick with Miller Park here in Sacramento or Knight's Landing when a bunch of folks are going out.

    We have a houseboat on Lake Don Pedro. DP has some nice campgrounds (Fleming Meadows or Blue Oaks) on one end of the lake with hookups or dry camping. Loud stereos and late night parties not allowed.

    Many of the houseboats owners also own hot boats, some pretty nice. The group is very kid/family friendy. It makes a nice place to day camp if you are interested. The invitation is out there. We will be on the water most weekends during the summer. The "Delta Lunch Bunch" has an unofficial trip the weekend of July 25. Memorial day is just around the corner. Better get a campsite if anything is available. Wherever you choose, have a great time.

    PM me if you want more details.
