Pardee Recreation Area is an exceptional place for a camp out, with over 100 sites for tent and RV campers. Two separate campgrounds, Oaks and Lake View, allow a camper a large number of sites to choose from, all with a picnic table and fire ring. Ample shade from the oak trees spread through the campgrounds make for plenty of cool sites. Portable restrooms and shared water spigots are available all throughout the camping areas and flush toilets, showers and laundry facilities are available closer to the marina. Lake View Campground has sites that provide an exquisite view of the water and has twelve short-term full hook-up RV sites. Oaks campground has sites that are a little smaller, but are more secluded and present a camping experience full of nature and closer to the woodsy feeling many look for when visiting the wilderness. 3 ADA sites, two for tent camping and one for RV camping, are also available for reservation.

Pardee Lake Recreation Area has been creating positive memories for visitors since its opening in 1958. Located along the Mokeumne River, Pardee Recreation Area provides stunning views and diverse activities for all visitors, old and young. The park lays in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada Mountain Range of Northern California and is just twelve miles southwest of Jackson. The facility is reachable from Highway 88 or Highway 12 and is right outside the historic town of Sutter Creek. The overwhelming beauty of this recreation area provides for guests a state of peace as they witness the tranquility of geese floating on the water top, excitement as wild turkeys dart across their path, and joy as they interact with the friendly staff. Pardee Recreation Area closes each winter during November - January for its migratory bird season as part of EBMUD's wildlife enhancement program.

From fishing to hiking, Pardee Recreation Area offers an abundance of activities to keep even the most active groups busy over a long weekend. Two swimming pools, several day use areas, boat rentals, fishing and breathtaking hiking trails make this park full of adventure and areas to explore. The park is also home to several friends including wild turkeys, deer, and various fish species. To fuel visitors' adventures, the Lake Pardee Cafe offers tasty breakfast and lunch options and the best 50/50 freeze you'll find. As the center of EBMUD's drinking supply, to comply with state law, personal water crafts, water skiing, and lake swimming are not permitted.
