Overview

Codorniz Campground on Eastman Lake is a perfect launchpad for activities like canoeing, birding and hiking. Tucked in the Sierra Nevada foothills, the area attracts abundant wildlife like bobcats, golden eagles, mountain lions, hawks and wood ducks.

Recreation

Eastman Lake is the first designated Trophy Bass Fishery, by the California Department of Fish and Wildlife. Both young and old anglers will find fishing on Eastman lake a satisfying challenge. At the campground, visitors can try their hand at disc golf or challenge a group of friends to a game of volleyball. Horseshoe pits are also available for a little friendly competition.

Facilities

A mix of electric and non-electric campsites are available. Fish cleaning stations are near each boat ramp, and showers are on hand as well. Wireless internet is provided from the campground office and horse camping corrals are available.

Natural Features

The rolling hills around Eastman Lake are surrounded by tall grasses and scattered oak trees, giving way to stunning mountain views.

The lake features 1,780 surface acres, fed by the cool waters of the Chowchilla River.

Nearby Attractions

The Sierra National Forest is a short drive to the east of the campground.
