Brown, Ron Calvert, Don Mittelstaedt, Charlie Moore, Fishmaster Gary Slade, Gary Swager, and guests Jim Andrews and Ted Morrison.

A highlighted map of the lake is also provided as part of this packet.

Directions:
Cameron Park is located in‐between Eldorado Hills and Placerville. From Highway 50, take Exit #34 Cambridge Road. Stay on Cambridge and head north for 2.4 miles; the road winds around a bit and you will encounter several stop signs. The lake will appear on your right‐hand side. Continue towards the
north end of the lake and you’ll see the park entrance on your right. (Note: you may not want to trust Google Maps – I got some weird results when testing this address!)
