The 146-acre park, owned and managed by Thousand Trails Management Services, is located on the shores of 3,264-acre Calaveras Lake. The reservoir, owned by CPS Energy, offers fishing, boating and watersport opportunities. The park includes a nature trail, campsites, shaded picnic tables, fishing pier and boat ramp.
In addition to water birds such as great egret, double-crested cormorant, American white pelican, common moorhen, American coot and pied billed grebe, birders may observe loggerhead shrike, marsh wren, crested caracara and Harris' hawk. We have also observed black-crowned night heron and Eastern meadowlark in the late winter/early spring (February - March). Springtime visitors to Calaveras Park are treated to wildflowers such as Indian paintbrush and Texas lupine (bluebonnet).
