Great Family Campground

Very clean and well maintained campground. Staff is super friendly and accommodating. Quiet times are reasonable for family ambiance. Would recommend arriving to the lake early before it fills up to the public.

Can be loud

We were right next to the entrance of a hiking trail (#14) so there was a lot of foot traffic & cars early in the morning and throughout the day. There was a large party of maybe 6-8 people next to us that blasted music way into the night. It wasn’t very considerate, but you never know the neighbors you’ll get. There was a deep sink right next to the bathroom which made it easy to do dishes. Good place to stay but I’d prefer driving the extra hour or so to stay at a dispersed spot off Tenmile for free.

Awesome spot!

Free dispersed camping! The site we pulled into was so big and spacious. There was a man made fire ring with plenty of log seating around it. A big boulder and a long torn down tree separated us from a heard of wild cows. It was fun to watch them. It was one of the first spots after pulling off the road so we often got cars driving thru to check out the area. It was very quiet and private. There were several other spots up the path a little more but from what we saw, we liked ours the best!

Lovely, quiet Campground!

Great site! Spacious and clean, with a pretty cool creek that runs along the campground. My kids loved it! My only recommendation would be regular bathroom with a shower and to fill in the pot holes.

False Advertisement!

I am so disappointed and feel cheated with this campground. We drove 4.5 hours to find that this campsite is dead, totally different place than the one in the website and pictures. Everything was dried up, 5-6 campsites were out of order due to electrical problems, Wifi does not work, and pond is dry ! When we got there they said just park any open site, so basically they don’t reserve you a campsite online so its all a surprise until you get there. They were holding spots for people that just reserved that same day. We felt so frustrated and cheated. This campground is more for long term living RV’ers. or for overnight stays. Luz was very nice lady in charge but I would definitely not stay here again.

Quiet and clean

I’ve stayed at Dorabelle twice and enjoyed it both times! The sites are clean and well maintained. The access to the lake is a little walk but not too far and the cove is perfect for relaxing with kids. Highly recommend!


Nice place to take the rv sight's was clean no trash quite at night lot cooler by the river than in town

Beautiful and spacious

This is a walk-in campground designed primarily for the backpackers who use this as a jumping off point for trips. There are campsites spread around the meadow with picnic tables and bear boxes.The campsites are spread well apart under the pines. The parking encircles the large, flat meadow. The area is just gorgeous. It’s a great spot to get away from summer heat at 10,000 feet. Vault toilets, water spigots. Lots of hiking.

Right next to Bishop Creek

Stayed on Sept 2, 2020. Seems all the crowds are gone. Nice campground, with flush toilets, water, fire rings, benches, and bear boxes. Sound of the stream next to the campground is very soothing. Stayed in site 4, good for tent or small RV or trailer as are most sites. Level sights, good separation. Run by Forest Service, $28 a night but accept passes. Just up the road from Intake 2 where the fishing is very good. No cell service.


We’ll go back. Kaiser Pass was a bit of an adrenaline rush. It took 2 hours to drive 18 mikes on a one lane road that is not in good repair. But WORTH it! The campground is nice, walkable and level. The dispersed area is always open, though you need a 4WD to access. The s emery is great. Doris lake is pretty, with several cliffs to jump from ranging all sizes up to 60” feet. The hot springs and mud baths are great!
