About Tannery

Tannery Gulch Campground offers four loops of sites shaded by a mix of conifer and deciduous trees on the shores of Trinity Lake. Three of the four loops offer scenic lake views.

Campers at Tannery Gulch have access to a wide range of recreational activities, and an on-site amphitheater offers programs during the summer.


Hikers can access the half-mile Trail of the Trees from the campground. Tannery Gulch also features a boat ramp and swim beach that are only open for use by campers at the facility.

Popular activities on Trinity Lake include power and non-motorized boating, fishing, sailing and water skiing. Anglers can cast for catfish, as well as a variety of bass, trout and salmon.


Each site has a paved parking spur, picnic table and fire pit. Some also have bear-proof food lockers. Drinking water and flush toilets are provided.

Tannery Gulch Campground

This is a great camp area, however when we went the Lake was really low. It was still very nice for fishing and kayaking. The camp sites were really nice, some had steps down to the picnic tables, the RV pads were nice and level. The restroom facilities were very clean. Beautiful views of the Trinity Alps. This campground takes a while to drive to, but totally worth it.
