My boyfriend and I spent 45 days at Whitney Reservoir. It was by far the best experience We’ve ever had. Of course on busy weekends there was a little more commotion from other campers and atvs. However everyone was respectful of our space. The sheep seem to run the land 😂 we experienced the water drop almost 30 feet. Fishing was phenomenal. Never skunked. We made a point to revamp, clean, and improve the campsites we visited. The rangers in this area are extremely nice and helpful. I had a just a few pets… 10 turkey vultures, 2 bald eagles, 1 Osprey, 1 woodpecker, 4 deer, 2 Moose, 2 porcupines, mice, lots of chip monks, 1 fox, a couple owls and Coyote. A bear we never saw… and many, many, many unwanted flies. As the water receded the algae bloomed quite a bit and made it a little creepy to swim in. We very much enjoyed watching the moon go through it’s phases and star gazing with zero light pollution. The road is a little bumpy past the Dam but we had a Subaru Tribeca that went everywhere it needed to. We arrived at the end of July and we called it quits when a small hurricane came through and snowed for two days.
Incredible back woods camping. Dirt roads to no where! Loved every minute! We’ll definitely be going back…soon!!
