[New Melones Lake: Tuttletown Campground.] You want to camp here. The Gloryhole campground is just that (in my humble opinion). Also a great place to bring the dogs. I'd suggest camping out here in early June or late September/early October if you're looking for solitude. The rangers all rock and will set you up with a great campsite if you take the time to chat it up and let them know what you're after. Great place for everyone: kids, grandparents, dogs, etc. The lake is warm by late spring and it's not hard to find a quiet place to swim if you're willing to hike a little. I've been twice and will definitely go again.
