Peninsula Campground is found on the east side of Folsom Lake between the north and south forks of the American River. Access to the campground is a round-about drive out Highway 49 to Pilot Hill and then 11 miles west on Rattlesnake Bar Road. When lake levels are high enough for the launch ramp to be in use (above 430 feet) the campground is especially popular with boaters. Visitors to the campground also enjoy hiking and fishing.
Peninsula Campground has 100 campsites. Thirty-four sites are tent-only. The remaining sites can accommodate RVs, trailers, and tents. Some of those sites have non-specific reservations, which means campers are assigned a site upon arrival.
General Camping Information
Opening and closing dates of campgrounds are only estimates, usually dependent on snow conditions. Not all campsites can accommodate trailers or RVs of all lengths. Check carefully on the reservation website when you make your reservation to be sure your vehicle will fit your campsite.
In order to prevent the spread of invasive insects, obtain firewood locally.
Designated Accessible sites are usually reserved for people with disabilities who have a vehicle displaying an accessible parking placard or license plate
