Northern California’s Premier Fishing & Camping Destination

Lake Amador Resort has been a family owned and operated business since 1972, and is located in the beautiful Oak-studded foothills of the great Sierra Nevada Mountains. It’s only a short, one hour drive from Sacramento and Stockton, and only two hours from anywhere in the Bay Area.

At our 1300 acre facility we offer a heavily stocked 400 acre lake, with updated dual lane boat launch and a large fishing dock for shore anglers. We also feature a huge campground with hot showers, flush toilets and large shady oak trees as well as a full hookup RV Park. For activities you will find to enjoy TWO  18 hole DISC GOLF courses and a temporary additional 18 hole course in the winter months, cool off at the 1 acre sand beach Swim Pond with a big WATERSLIDE (Open Memorial Day-Labor Day), and even a playground for the kids. If you’re the outdoors type you will love our scenic landscape where hiking, biking and bird watching in the Fall through Spring is absolutely beautiful.

Now you can’t forget the totally awesome Lake Amador Clubhouse where we offer food and fun out of the sun! There you can utilize the FREE WIFI, play pool, horse shoes, and watch our TV. The Clubhouse features a Beer Bar, as well as The Tackle Box Café, where you can get a scrumptious and filling Breakfast and Lunch.

We plant more pounds of trout per acre of water than any other lake in California.
