Collins Lake Campground
Collins Lake is owned and operated by the Browns Valley Irrigation District. The Collins Lake concession offers camping, boating, and other amenities. Collins Lake is located between Marysville and Grass Valley, about 1¼ hour's drive from Sacramento. Fishing, swimming, water skiing and other water activities are popular here. Jet skis are not permitted.
A wide range of campsites are available, some without hook-ups, some lakeside, some with water and electric hook-ups, and others with full hook-ups. First-come, first-served, open camping areas for RVs, trailers, and tents are also available. Rates vary by season and by days of the week, e.g. higher rates on weekends.
Collins Lake also has Group Campsites.
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, firewood should be obtained from the local area of the campground.
Designated Accessible sites are usually reserved for people with disabilities who have a vehicle displaying an accessible parking placard or license plate
