Collins Lake opens at sunrise all year for lakefront RV hookup & tent camping, fishing, boating, picnics or just enjoying the beach. We're famous for our big bass, trophy trout and monstrous ice cream cones!

We have a 1600 acre lake and recreation area with 12 miles of shoreline, nestled in the beautiful California gold country foothills just over an hour North East of Sacramento between Marysville and Grass Valley.

Our facilities include RV hookups, boat launch, marina and boat rentals, a big sand swimming beach, children's playground, beach volleyball, shady picnic area, general store, laundry and hot showers.

More than 50,000 trout are planted every spring, which means Collins Lake has the largest private planting program North of Sacramento. Thousands of these trout are trophy sized, planted at 3 to 8 pounds and growing even larger. We've built habitat areas for bass, crappie, bluegill and catfish to keep them plentiful and to keep Collins Lake among the best fishing lakes in the Northstate.

Our friendly and professional staff will be happy to assist you with camping reservations, current fishing information and any questions you may have. So come and visit us!
