Any suggestions for NorCal Foothill Lakes?

Would like to take the RV and camp at a lakeshore within a couple hours of the East Bay. I want to be able to launch our waverunner and camp overnight within view of my anchored waverunner and walk to the RV.
Curious if anyone knows what first come first serve lakes allow that type of rv camping, use of a PWC, and also allow dogs?

Hi,


I live in the Foothills of the Sierra Nevada mountains. Have you checked out Rollins Lake? There are 3 sides you can choose from. Long Ravine, orchard springs and greenhorn access. All are run by the NID(Nevada irrigation district). We camped at Long Ravine last Summer and camped at Orchard Springs a few weeks ago. Both have full Hookups and boat launching. Let me know if you need any more info. The long ravine side tends to be busier than the Orchard Springs side.

Oh and I believe spot #258 was the one we had our trailer and it was lake access and beach access within a 30 second walk.

Rollins is nice, we haven't been there in years.

My brother & sister in law like to go to Lake Comanche, in Valley Springs. They bring their dog and wave runner too.

We ended going to New Hogan Lake and had a good time. It was our first time RVing at a lake and it was fairly warm. Figured out that you cant run the microwave and A/C at the same time
We weren't sure what we were getting into so we didnt take the dogs but did take the waverunner. Kind of a small lake but still fun.
Next time gonna try and get a place with hook ups (haven't done that yet) and Rollins Lake sounds like a nice place to try

Commanche sounded expensive when we checked and we did go camping many years ago (about 25 years ago) and didn't like that it had an arcade. Not my idea of getting away

I didn't know it had an arcade.
Yes it IS expensive, but it has the full hook ups. Also the water is much cleaner than Hogan, which has had bacterial problems.
Cammanche is a a bigger lake too.

It's not a favorite of mine personally, but for something close its ok. I prefer to head to Bodega. I need ocean... Lol
