In a radio interview, John Fogerty said when he was young his parents took him and his brother to a camp at Lodi lake (called Smith lake then) and they hated camping there. So later on they wrote a song about Lodi using their old hate towards the place. Although John Fogerty was only 23 years old at that time, he could see the reverse side of fame and fortune - things you'll never happen to see in a small towns like Lodi, California.

I don't think anything more complicated than this was meant.
