I loved the fishing here. You could tell it has been stocked at the amount of fish that were super easy catching on the fly rod.
Some sites are right on top of each other so drive around and find one that works for you. Many are creekside.
At first the campground will seem small but the more you drive around the more sites you will find.
No water and only pit toilets. The site I stayed in did have what looked to be a man made fire ring and there was a picnic table. I do not recall what site I stayed in. The markers are not all that clear on some sites.
4th of July weekend was warm and a little buggy but this campground is strewn with little streams and one of our favorite places so far. Bathrooms were incredibly clean and trash was empty even on a holiday weekend.
the seven lakes hike is nearby and amazing but difficult. Dog friendly is also a plus.
Baker Creek Campground at first glance was a small campground when just booking it online. Not too many photos or information about it other than bathroom, trash cans, fire rings etc. We showed up around 6 A.M. when it was still dark in the campground. I knew the general area of the campsite, so we drove around with only head lights to guide us. We ended up essentially drive through campsite 33 I believe it was, to get to our campsite 34. So that particular step up was a little different. We we stepped out of the car we could hear a stream on both sides of us, ahhhh we made it. The sound of the stream was lovely. We set up camp and knocked out for a few hours. Waking up in the sunlight was an experience because it was pitch black when we showed up; past our two stream, we hadn't known what was surrounding us. Upon waking up we could see there was a trash can and restroom not too far away. On our West side past the creek was a small hill. To the east on the other side of the stream there was two other campsite. There was rocks in the stream so you could cross with ease. It also helped with the serenity of the stream sound. We went hiking to Big Pine lakes that day. When we returned 5.5 hours later, everything was as we left it, but we had gained some neighbors. It was a little weird that we now had to drive through an occupied campsite to get through to ours, but there was plenty of space to do so. Also, across the stream we gain a gentleman and his dog. This site was a little overgrown and the whole campground itself was a little malnourished. Before leaving the following day we drove through the entire campground to find it was much bigger than we anticipated. There were ponds for fishing and the stream ran through the entire campground. There were spots for RVs. Car/ tent. There was a option for tent/walk-up too. Seems like a pretty popular campground despite its appearance.
Overall we would love to camp there again!
Here is a summary of the campground:

As a Ranger for The Dyrt, I get products to test from time to time - today I am testing TredAgain's Sandals!
These TredAgain Sandals were one's I have been looking forward to reviewing. This is the first time they have come camping with me, but I've been using them daily. First of all, I would like to say that while shopping for them that I really enjoyed they had a selection of colors to choose from, but I am a simple gal so black was the way to go. Second of all, I respect and love what TredAgain is doing as a company for the Earth as a shoe-wear company. Recycling, or as they call it up-cycling , old tires into durable footwear! It speaks to my love for the environment!
Though it was chilly outside this weekend I still rocked my TredAgain's around camp with my stylish sock! They were perfect to walk across the rocks to get the restroom. Since the sandal is the rubber material, I didn't have a doubt skipping across the rocks! Sitting by the fire, they never over heated like some shoes will so that was enjoyable to get the heat from the fire and not have to worry about my sandals. I know I will be taking these sandals on more adventures with me in the future!
Stream line design
Traction on outdoor surfaces
The material strap
Being able to quickly wash them up
The fact they are up-cylced
They make more than just sandals.
Only available online , to what I've seen/read
They do squeak a little when wet
This is a great little campground at the base of the Sierra Nevada Mountains. Each campsite has a table, BBQ and located next to Baker Creek. There is also a lovely pond for fishing and lots of shade. Cost is $14 per night.
