Can you guys fill me in on the San Antonio Lake scoop? We were planning a trip to Naci all next week, but based on everything I have been hearing the lake is basically a big mud puddle.

1. Can you fit 40' coaches @ San Antonio
2. What do the camp sites look like
3. How does the lake compare to Naci
4. Can we all park together
5. Do they have BBQ's, Fire Pits etc.

We have 17 people going, (3) 40' motorhomes, and a 30' motorhome. Feedback and/or Pictures please.

Thanks

Great place to camp , we have a 39 ft Providence and have camped there many of times. there is dry camping and full hookups .

Personally we like the dry camping better ,because you can get park right at the waters edge . someone on here just posted some pics from last week. The water looks a little low from their pics but that just makes for better camping down on the lake .

1st come 1st serve so make sure you get there early .

as far as the water being low , I dont think its as a bad as Naci. I cant compare the two lakes as far as camping .My brother inlaw has a house at Naci. so I cant really compare, but I will say is San Anton. is a really cool camping lake plenty of shore line and little fingers to camp in . And you can have your boat only a few feet from walking out of your RV. I would post some pics but I cant find them.

Well......just got some pics from 2 days ago at Naci, lake is super low, there is almost vertical walls going into the lake. And San Antonio has leaches....

Maybe it's a trip to Black Meadow in Havasu, never can go wrong with Havasu.

Any other lakes within a 4-5 hour drive that are big, lots of trees, great camping accomodations for the larger coaches?????? PLEASE HELP ANYONE, post some links, ideas.

The camping at Lake San Antonio is nice cause you are right on the waters edge. If you get there early enough you can get a very nice beach/camp spot. Naci is a better lake but its really low this year. San Antonio has more water but that lake is turning over or something this year cause there is all kinds of algea in the water and there are leeches on the shore its kind of gross. I've been going there for a long time and have never seen the water like it is this year. Naci has decent camp ground but you have to really watch where you are going in the boat. I'm trying to line up as many trips to the river that I can this year and these lakes are local to me. If its a toss up for you to come up here or go to the river by all means go to the river I'll be right behind you. Both of these lakes are really nice when they are full. So if I were you I'd wait to plan a trip up here till there is more water.

You might want to check another lake out, heard it's pretty nasty there right now. I was told the algae is bad, and the bugs are out of hand as well. But the worst was there are A LOT of leeches on the water and mud.

If you're headed up that way, I'd check out Don Pedro. I don't know about the RV accommodations, but it's a great lake.

Thanks guys for all your help and recommendations, we decided to take a road trip up to Tahoe instead. Not taking the boat but maybe we will rent one up there. Never been to Tahoe so should be a good trip.....long drive, but should be nice.

Thanks again everyone.
