Beautiful, but crowded!

PSP is a great place to stay or spend a day at. There is great lake access, hiking trails, and the Ponderosa's are superb! I like to go to PSP during the "off-season" to avoid the crowds. Heading out in the winter, there are great snowshoeing and Nordic skiing options.

Pretty but crowded

Good location, very close to the city of McCall. Very large and busy campground. Seems like the sites are very close together and none of them are waterfront. Lots of good bike trails. It was also very expensive. Over $100 for two nights in a double occupancy site with water and electric.

Ponde pines all abound

Electricity, showers and on line reservations- beautiful mountain lake and close to town if you want

Full of activities

This area has bike trails, water activities, beaches along the lake, and more. Three loops and a total of 113 sites would seem promising if you are looking for a site. But it was nearly full (3 sites left) on a Monday! Shower houses in each loop. We however found it extremely crowded and chose to go on to somewhere less noisy. We stopped at ice cream alley in McCall for the most delicious ice cream around.

Great sites

Awesome hiking and mountain bike trails right from the camp area. Sites were super clean including bathrooms and showers. Hosts were very nice and polite. By far one of our favorite locations

Very crowded

There are a lot of people camping here. All of the sites are very close it can be a bit of inconvenience but I have had no real problem. It has very nice bathrooms and showers. It is very close to the lake. I drove to the north side of the lake so that I could bring my dog. It is fairly priced.

Awesome experience

We love Ponderosa! Favorite place to camp.

Ponderosa

Ponderosa is in beautiful McCall, Idaho. Close to downtown and the lake. Great hiking trails. Good park for a family. The campsites are right next to one another, so not much privacy there. Bathrooms are close by. If you don't mind be a little tight with campsites, would highly recommend.

Close to civilization

This is definitely a fun spot if you enjoy the family camping community feeling. Hiking trails are really nice and woodsy. The lake is easy to access, and McCall is just the coolest little mountain town. It is basically resort camping. It will take some advanced planning to book a spot.

Great for families!

This is a great site for families-  either in a tent or in a camper. Great bike paths and access to amenities. The beach access is easy and beautiful. Campground is located in McCall- making it easy to go buy groceries or eat out. The breweries there are also great.
