Quiet, small campground with easy access to two lakes and hiking trails. Campers must register at Bishop Lake Campground first. Also, a daily recreation pass is required ($9/ day). If you enter from the east you will need to travel several miles on an unpaved bumpy road.

I am in love with this campground. Our family has already made plans to go there many times next year. It's so peaceful and there are plenty of things to do. You are close to bike trails, walking trails, fishing, and swimming. Cannot wait to go back.
