Spots pretty spread out and amazing views. Will be back for sure! Water and bathrooms available. Firewood for purchase from rangers. Nice little trails within the campground too! Make sure to catch the sunset over emerald bay from the top of the walking trail towards the middle of the campground.
Looks like most people lived here. Good place to stay when needing a rest on the way back from or to the mountains, but it’s not much of a destination stop.
Has all the amenities though! Pool. Bathrooms. Showers. Hookups.
It was a very nice camping location however there is virtually no signage to direct folks to a campsite number- very poor . The roads are paved, but are in horrible condition.
Sites vary in size. Make reservations on recreation.gov and make sure the site you pick is adequate in size for your vehicle. Many sites are pull through, although mine was a bit tight to pull in due to a Joshua tree and vegetation on one side. The site was fairly large and nice picnic table.
Public restrooms' are available and Wi-Fi is available near the main building.
This is a nice location if you want to be close to shopping and also close to the main entrance to the National Park.
Right by kidd lake. More amenities than Long Lake sites, but not quite as remote/pretty
There are several primitive campgrounds to choose from. Some right near the lake. There is a pit toilet, but no water or fire rings. The drive is long and fairly rough. Having a vehicle with some clearance helps. It is possible to get a smaller trailer there but not recommended. The lake is beautiful and try to hike to the waterfalls at the creek at the end of the lake if you can. We’ve never had issues with animals or bugs at Bowman Lake.
So beautiful! The lake is nestled in the mountains. The scenery, fishing and water sports are superb! There are ample campgrounds with spots from tent camping to RV camping. They also have group camping right on the water! If you love mountain lakes, don’t miss this one… and book early!
