Wide open and peaceful

Up on the foothills, this expansive campground is in a nice, peaceful setting. Exposed to the elements, it was quite windy with no shade the 2 days we stayed there, except for the nice little shelters on each site. Most of the sites are by reservation only but one loop is first-come. Wonderful…

Hidden Gem

We drove down and back up Green Creek Rd for about 2 hours to find the perfect spot. We settled on the second space as it’s pretty tucked back and offers a front row seat to the creek. The road was windy and very bumpy. At times, the bottom of my sedan was brushing against some bushes. This is…

Everything in one

This was by far my favorite camping! Besides the lake being a one minute walk from your site they also had super clean restrooms with running water. The view of the lake is amazing! The drive up was nice too. The fishing was amazing!! Everyone with a license caught fish! There’s convenience stores…

Beautiful Location

Our stay at Paradise Shores couldn't have been better. We first heard about Paradise Shores from some new friends and their recommendation didn't disappointed.

When we arrived a small storm was just coming in and when we woke up we had about 3" of fresh snow and were in a winter wonderland next…

Perfect Hot Springs Stop

This is a great place to stop in for some relaxing hot springs. The water in the springs we went to was actually super warm. We got there later in the evening and it was difficult to find a spot with the crowds, so try to time it right. The hot springs were easy enough to get to even at night, as…

Bear loop space 2

Short trip in from the highway. Stayed in the bear loop. Camping is very close to one another. Needed a place to rest from a day of long driving. Toilets are not in each loop so it is a hike/drive. Each space had a bear box, and table- don’t remember for certain if there were fire pits but I think…

Pinecrest campground

Pinecrest was an amazing place at the edge of the Stanislaus national forest. The community is great, the campground and bathrooms were very well maintained. It was a 10min walk to the lake. If you’re into fishing, there are trout in the area with some nice fishing spots labeled on the paper map.…

The best home base for spring skiing

This is my go to spot for missions to Mammoth! Whether setting up shop for a few days or rolling in late before an early start, I always camp here, although I would suggest driving an AWD vehicle.

Beautiful !

The campgrounds are beautiful and well maintained! The bathrooms are the cleanest I’ve ever seen at a campground and down by the lake is beautiful! Highly recommend!

I didn't stay. Can't believe it has 5 stars!

I guess if you stayed on the water it might be nice but the campground itself was pretty bad. 1st they have blocked any phone signal so even with my WeBoost I could not work from here. 2nd the flies were horrible. 3rd my site was across from overflowing trash can. 4th the hookups are on the wrong…

Good but busy

This place was the busiest of the hot springs in the area. There is so much public land here that we ended up finding a super secluded spot off of hot creek which is even better than a hot spring IMO.
