Sunset Campground (Union Valley Reservoir) has 121 campsites and is located next to the reservoir in the El Dorado National Forest. Single, double and triple capacity sites are available. Aptly named, the campground is a fantastic destination for colorful sunset views over the lake.
About half of the campsites are best suited for tents, and the others for tents, trailer and RVs. Park spurs range from 25 to 40 feet for tent sites and 40 to 50 feet for trailer/RV sites. There are also several double sites and one triple site. Each site also has a table, food storage locker (bear box), fire ring and grate.
Campground amenities include drinking water, showers and vault toilets. There’s also a boat ramp, picnic areas, swimming beach and a dump station. Firewood is also available for sale from the camp host.
The main attraction is the beautiful reservoir which offers a variety of water recreation including boating, canoeing, kayaking, fishing, swimming and sailing. Visitors can also enjoy mountain biking or hiking through the towering cedar and Ponderosa pines of Eldorado National Forest. Eldorado includes the famed gold mining territory of the 1800s. Remnants of the days of the California Gold Rush can be found all around the region.
