Never been camping and this was our first trip. Happy that we got to experience this place as it is nice. The view from the ground is for sure beautiful and very nice. There is a general store that sells many things and they are very fair with the prices. There is a little boat access only beach that looks so beautiful on the left side of the lake ( after you exit the launch area ). Only thing is that the water is very murky and muddy.

This lake is in a perfect location,it's right before the major climb to Tahoe on interstate 80.Just make right off the freeway if your coming from the bay area at the Colfax sign and follow the sign's all the way to Rollins.Nice boat ramp should have 4x4 to launch boat's. Go the North, because the water is cooler and clean and it is peaceful up that way . A great lake one day or one season with your ski boat!

The lake itself was beautiful! Our double lakeside camp site was not so great. Entire site was on a slope which made it scary with the kids. Had to hike down the hill to get to the water which is understandable with the lake level but still very unsafe. Water was a dirty brown several feet before it was blue. Nice fire pit & decent restrooms. Did not visit the showers. Campground supplied large trash bags & came by to collect garbage each day which was very nice. Water tap near our site was great. Went to the day use area and stayed about 5 minutes! Very dry, deserted, and not swimmer friendly. Store was very small & we had to leave & drive several miles to purchase our needs. Price was ok & employees were nice. Would definitely return to the lake but most likely not Peninsula Campground.

We love Rollins Lake, especially during the week when it's not busy. Weekends can be quite crowded on the water. From Citrus Heights, we can be on the water in an hour. The scenery around the lake is beautiful. The launch facilities are adequate. There's nowhere we'd rather be in the summer!
