Family fun for all ages

Excellent spot for the whole family. Beware, if you are pulling a trailer brush up on your backing up skills. Very tight and narrow. Best time to get in the park is during the day. Not much difference between back in sites versus pull through sites. Very clean facilities. Close to everything. Everyone is nice and friendly. #162 is a good level site for RV.

Friendly

Nice place, clean

Large sites

This lake is a quiet getaway, with waterfront access and a warm lake. Short hike in but has picnic tables and bear boxes.

Views

Takes a rough road to get up to camp. But it has some great views and access to great trails.

Does the job, excellent camp host

This campground was just another quick layover for me.

Sites were well maintained, picnic tables, fire rings and bear boxes.  

Running water, flush toilets and at every spigot there was a gallon jug filled for you to use to extinguish your fires.

Bathrooms were clean and well stocked, the camp host walked around to check the sites and be sure everyone had paid.

Was a nice quite site but I was toward the back part of the campground.  I'm sure if you were toward the front part there would be road noise.

Best of everything...

If you love the mountains and the beach, this is the place to be! This campground is tucked away in the forest. Not far from a local town to gamble if you like but far enough away you’d never know it was there. Once you’ve entered the campsite area there’s plenty of sites to choose from and plenty of room for privacy. Reservations can be made but are not necessary, once settled it’s just a short walk to the lake and it feels like you’re at the beach. Beautiful sandy shores with glacier clear water at the lake. Winters here are just the best. Sunsets are colorful and vibrant and you will not want to leave when you can catch fresh Salmon! Tree top adventures zip-lining is also not far away and it was one of the best trips we’ve made to date! All amenities are here, as needed. Small shop for wood at the entrance, restrooms, fire pits, tables and secured bear lockers. It is incredibly clean and an overall beautiful campground, we can’t wait to go back!

Alpine Lakes

This is a great glimpse at what the High Sierra lakes further south look like… but better. Dispersed camp sites all over. (Make sure to follow signs and camp appropriately distanced from the lakes)

Beautiful and peaceful

For beauty and solitude alone this is a five star spot. Follow the dirt road into the little valley and soon a beautiful meadow opens up ahead with a small creek running through. Sites are located along the meadow and around a loop in the back portion of the campground where there’s a trail head into the wilderness. Camping here requires some planning ahead as there is no potable water available and only pit toilets but the trade off is the incredible scenery and peaceful surroundings. Keep your eyes open for horses and cattle!

Beautiful but crowded

Great family campground but if your in search of solitude this is not the spot. Situated across from the campground is the day use area which is very popular and noisy.
Facilities are clean and the campground is beautiful, great walking path too!
