Ironhorse Campground is on a peninsula in the Glory Hole Recreation Area of New Melones Lake. Visitors to the campground enjoy the close proximity of a marina and boat launch ramp, trails along the shore of the lake, and nearby fish cleaning stations. New Melones is popular for fishing, boating, and water skiing.
Ironhorse Campground has 87 campsites spread across rolling hills. Most can accommodate RVs, trailers, and tents, while 20 campsites are designated as walk-in, tents-only. Each of the walk-in, tents-only sites accommodates up to 4 people. They are located on the tips of two peninsulas, close to the water. No RVs, trailers, or boat are allowed at the walk-in sites. Some campsites have at least partial shade from mature oaks, but others have limited or no shade.
