We only stayed one night, having never been to Yuba Lake we wondered why we hadn't been before. It's so close to Salt Lake City and it has 3 campgrounds. We even managed to get a spot over Memorial Da... read more »

It was nice that water was low because we were able to get a nice, sandy beach, but because it's so low boats cannot get very close to the short. The water was 75F when I went and it was perfect temperature. There was plenty of beach to stake a spot on. It does get crowded on weekends, though. There are 2 main areas to Yuba lake, the east and west end so it's kind of nice to have a little separation to break up over-crowding.
Been here a handful of times and have always had fun. The water is very low right now and it's exposed trash that has been at the bottom for some time. We saw a bundle of old barb wire, rusty pliers, dead fish, nasty shoes and all kinds of trash. Half of the boat ramp did not go down far enough to reach the water. It was $10 per car despite there being trash and dangerous things all over the mud/beach. It was really windy and sand was blowing everywhere
While I hadn't been here for many years my family and I decided trying camping here overnight one weekend at the beginning of August. The nicer campgrounds with grass and kept toilets were full and the man at the window said we were unlikely to find an open spot since they are usually booked four months ahead. He was friendly and suggested we try finding a beach spot. We knew about the beach camping but were unsure due to their not being any restrooms in close proximity to the beach with the water being so low. Nonetheless we decided to try it out. The beach camping is available by capacity so it's up to each party to find a spot. The price is five dollars less than the campgrounds and there are no camp hosts. We were lucky to find a spot with a fire pit and a table. We ended up letting someone else take our table since we had one with us. There were a lot of people side by side along the beach but it's a large area and doesn't feel crowded. The crowd seemed to be a mix of families with kids and pretty much anyone else you'd find out camping. Our neighbors weren't terribly loud at night like it can be sometimes but during the day there was a lot of noise from boats and ATV's. The day long winds made it difficult to produce our own shade and the sun was hot but the wind did help with keeping the heat down. There is a lot of comfy sand and you don't need to wear shoes which is nice. We also thought it was nice not having to stress much about knowing where our kids were as we could see them the whole time from our camp. The wind made it impossible to keep their hats on but luckily they were shellacked with sunscreen. The restrooms were pretty far from our camp and were not very clean such as there being dried feces covering the floor and walls and toilet paper strewn about. Who does this? Luckily we had three outhouses to choose from and another wasn't so bad. Overall we enjoyed our stay here as it welcomed a relaxing atmosphere where we could just be and not have to constantly worry if our kids were being eaten by bears or having to trek to a lake infested with snakes. That's a little extreme, it happens sometimes. We'll consider camping here again. Also, do not park on "black sand". You will get stuck. We were told that the tow fee for that is $500. We only paid $16 for the night and that was fine.
Good camping spots, surprisingly clean bathrooms, large pavilion (if no one else is using it), and a good dock and loading zone for boats. We brought our homemade kayaks here and had a blast.
So windy!!!!! Beach sand got everywhere! Water was nice temp in late July. Boat ramp and facilities are nice. Water level was pretty low which revealed nice beaches.
