Southern Monterey County and San Luis Obispo County offer attractions for every age and interest. Campers at Lake San Antonio's North Shore Campgrounds have a wonderful lake before them for fishing and boating.
Lake San Antonio is 22 miles north of Paso Robles and only 7 miles from Lake Nacimiento. The campgrounds at the lake are operated by Monterey County Parks. Visitors to the lake enjoy waterskiing, jet skiing, fishing, swimming, mountain biking, hiking, and eagle watching. A nearby marina has boat rentals.
Lake San Antonio's North Shore Camping is available at McCandless Springs Campground. The shoreline camping area has 18 campsites with full hook-ups, 73 sites with electric and water hook-ups, and others without hook-ups. Dispersed shoreline camping is permitted along a great length of the shore.
