The lakes mentioned here are bad (edited) for vacationing. There are many nicer lakes in this area. Clementine (upper lake for non boating) for example. Lake Theodore is a bass pond, nothing more. Says Chuck
Lake Theodore is good enough to spend more than a day at, Auburn State Recreation Area - Upper Clementine Access is a good local campground. A fishing trip to nearby California School-Fly Fishing is always a glorious idea; a fine location to camp
here at Lake Theodore is Bowman RV Park. Not enough hours in a day to enjoy this location. Near Lake Theodore you stumble on a golf course called Raspberry Hill Public Golf.
