  • Clean area usually. Nice little swimming area and a place to lay out and get some sun. 3 dollars to swim but not bad  more »
  • Rangers are awesome, Shaun and Denise are the best. Clean park has swimming camping and hiking trails as well as fishing. Love it here.  more »

  • They have top notch customer service and the food was absolutely delicious. Definitely will return even though it is so far away from home. Well worth it.
  • I give Lake Sylvia a10. Park staff a 1. I too have been put off by the current park ranger. The man who was there for a long time, Shawn?, now he knew his stuff! He didnt cram 'the RULES' in your face. I worked for State Parks in El Dorado, at the Arboretum. Thousands of folks came through the gates. I had to use my position to enforce 'the rules' a few times over the years, (like no plastic grass during the annual Easter Egg Hunt, bad for the critters and Earth) or safety issues that would arise, i.e. sleet, lightning, etc. However, rudeness was never part of my job.
