Great mid week camping, get a shady spot. Party place on the weekend

We loved this place. Checked in when almost full and had a spot in the sun. It gets hot during the day but the lake is right there to cool off in. Has shower house with running water and flush toilets butno showers? $28 per night, pay attendant if they ever come by. Kernsville is a nice town nearby…

  • Checked in Sat night
  • Chillin at the lake
  • Site empties out Sunday afternoon.

The Forest comprises about 1.1 million acres, and elevations range from about 1,000 to 12,000 feet, creating precipitous canyons and mountain streams with spectacular waterfalls, such as Salmon Creek Falls near Fairview and Grizzly Falls on the Kings River.
