Fishing on Lake McSwain

Lake McSwain Campground

Pack-up the family, come have some fun at Lake McSwain! The Lake McSwain Camping & Recreation area is one of Central California’s best kept secrets. Featuring a marina, general store, and food service. Lake McSwain features tons of great recreational areas and is located just six miles from the town of Snelling. Unlike other lakes, Lake McSwain is an after bay and its water levels are not affected by local water conditions, making it the perfect spot for fishing, swimming, or relaxing family picnics by the water.
