Camping fee increase for EXCLUSIVE USE of entire campground:
Beginning January 1, 2019, reservations made for Exclusive Use of entire campground for Holiday Weekends requires a minimum 2 nights stay.
Beginning June 1, 2019, Exclusive Use of entire campground fee increases from $300 to $350 per night for two or more nights. In addition, the fee for Exclusive Use of entire campground for ONE NIGHT is $400. Reservations made BEFORE June 1, 2019 will not be affected. The increase was necessary because the annual dam fees that MVFA pays to the state has increased by over 45% in the past two years, from $8,000 to over $12,000. Single campsite fee remains at $25 per night and Day Use fee remains at $6 per car of 6 max.
Don't forget the restrictions on trailers and motor homes on Mosquito Road. These vehicles must always use Rock Creek Road.
During fire season beginning July 1, campfires may be restricted by order of the fire department. Campfire restrictions will be indicated by "NO CAMP FIRES" signs at the entry to the park and in the campground. Failure to adhere to campfire restrictions may result in suspension of campground privileges. Unless restrictions are in place, firewood may be pre-ordered with the shopping cart on the "Camping" page. A limited amount of Firewood may also be available for sale at Frank's Diner.
All campfire wood must be kept within the fire rings.
DO NOT STICK LONG BRANCHES AND LIMBS INTO FIRE RINGS, OR YOU MAY BE CITED BY THE FIRE DEPARTMENT.
Finnon Lake Recreation Area is PRIVATE PROPERTY - monitored by MVFA volunteers, the Mosquito Fire Protection District and the El Dorado County Sheriff's Department.
The Finnon Lake perimeter road past the campground is closed to motor vehicles except for emergency. For the safety of hikers and our wildlife, driving vehicles off the main road and driving around barricades is prohibited. Violators are trespassing and subject to arrest.
