Camping is life
Very close to the lake, good tent sites

Great forest area, this site is right by Lake Hemet, about a 1 min drive (seriously) but some sites still have burned out area nearby. Bathrooms and showers are fairly good. Fun area and worth it. Lake Hemet is absolutely gorgeous.

Hidden gem

Rangers keep things respectable. Lake is well maintained, good looking place. Nice camping, just do a little research, some spots have great privacy and shade, some less. Great views in the camping area. Stayed with my son, we had a great time. Bonus: No CA fishing license needed! Just the lake permit of $7 per adult. Big fish in this lake. Warning: Beware the Poison Oak. If you’re hitting the trails or fishing the bank, there’s a lot of it (June 2019).
