havnt been in awhile but we use to go about 3-4 times a year, go early if you are going (thursday) if u want a good spot! also check the water level it gets low fast...

The way they keep sending all OUR water down to L.A. we might need to drive down there and launch in some of those pools. Even the river and Delta are running low. :|err

your pretty close to sum good water, but how much remains to be seen....ever been to bullards bar resevoir? was up there last weekend to help my dad set up for work and they say they are at 73% full and yes there was alot of water. guess check out water levels before making any plans or if all else fails hit "da river" good luck with your destination

nice and clean, small. Good for low freeboard boats.

but its in the middle of BFE and there are virtually no facilities. There is a small town (i.e. two buildings) ;) outside.

No reservations, get there early for a good spot.

East Park

We went 2 weeks ago, and the water level was fine. It is first come on camping. First time there for me and it was good. The wind did come uo and make it pretty choopy in the afternoon for a flatty, but there were only a few boats at a time on the lake. I'll go again.

Went to Pedro last week and it was pretty low, but plenty of open water. WAY choppy all weekend. Limited time for speed runs for sure.

Have fun!
