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. Call (530) 409-5515 for more info.
Beginning May 1, 2019, the Pet Fee changes from $3 per pet per day to a flat rate of $5 per pet per stay.
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 available for sale at Frank's Diner during hours of operation.
All campfire wood must be kept within the fire rings. Do not gather fire-wood from surrounding area. Do not leave large rounds or pieces of wood unburned in the fire rings. STICKING LONG BRANCHES or LIMBS INTO FIRE RINGS, OR LEAVING CAMPFIRES UNATTENDED MAY RESULT IN A CITATION 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 wildlife habitat and closed to motor vehicles except for emergencies. 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.
