  • Camp grounds are great! Clean bathrooms! Beautiful lake! But the noise curfew should be 10pm not 9pm. Had to turn music off at 9pm. Had to be quiet. Was supposed to be a birthday party weekend. This kinda of cut it short for us.
  • What a beautiful place to bring your family and just to get away from the city. Bring your boat, friends and family and swimming trunks. On the way there you can sure you will see tons of scenery. Now depending on the time you can it an be really packed and hard to find parking so choose wisely the time you come. The restrooms were clean and the park is really kept up and there is a small market inside of the park in case you forgot anything (its far away from stores) so make sure to pack tjr essentials. Bring your family she friends and you won't be disappointed.
  • Love, love, love Patagonia Lake. Always clean and the Park Rangers are very helpful. I come from San Diego just to camp at the lake. It's a beautiful getaway. All the natural beauty really revitalizes you from city life. In a short 24 hour period I am completely relaxed. The children play, fish, swim and chase dragon flies. Absolutely amazing. The private beaches (inlets) are what make it a superb family experience 😊.
  • It is definitely worth the 15 dollar entrance fee. The park has beautiful views in all directions. There is camping areas, RV spaces, Cabins you can rent and even a beach. You can even take the dog. The staff are professional and very friendly. Definitely worth a trip.
  • Great place. Beautiful park. Did some volunteer work here to help clean up he paths and trash from the lake. Great staff. Worth a visit. The bird viewing area is beautiful.
