This hidden treasure is a photographer's paradise. The high elevation, primitive campground sits on picturesque and pristine Scott Lake. On clear days, catch stunning views of the snowcapped volcanic peaks of the Three Sisters as they cast their reflection on the serene lake. Be prepared for heavy mosquitoes in July and August. A forest of subalpine fir, mountain hemlock, and bear grass surround the lake.
The campground is next to Benson/Tenas Trailhead and access to the Mt. Washington Wilderness is close by.
Camped here in mid October, not many people around but the view of the three sister mountains were phenomenal!!! Clean campground and nice camp sites
This campsite is the perfect place if you enjoy secluded tent camping in a primitive style but still want the comforts of a fire pit, picnic table and a toilet. The scenery is hard to match. Views of Three Sisters makes for the most breathtaking sunrise and hiking around the lake is beautiful. There is also hiking up to Tenas Lakes or Scott Mountain that makes for a good day trek. It was serene, quiet, picturesque, clean, and free! We paid $5 to park and the walk to our cite was not bad. Get there early to get the best spot; first come first serve.
