“Quiet and relaxing”

Overall Rating

After searching other nearby campgrounds from somewhere to stay we found Beardsley to have open sites, was quiet, and relaxing. The tent sites are lined up in a little gully, but were separated enough that we didn’t feel crowded. Site 13 is by itself and looked like the best, although it is walk up the steps to the site. The trailer sites looked large enough for a big rig. Across from site 13 is a trail down to the lake where there’s a big gnarly old oak that looks really cool.

Below the dam is China Flats day area and was nice for hiking, fishing, and just having fun.

The drive on Hwy 108 through Sonora pass was amazing and still had tons of snow at the top. If Beardsley is not open there are lots of small campgrounds along the highway that are walk up only.

We left the trailer at hone stayed in a tent this trip.

No one seems to know about this place. Great for a quiet, scenic view of the lake. Memorial Day weekend only brought about three campers to this spot, which has room for about 15. T-Mobile did not work but I’m told Verizon would work (camp host has Verizon)
Clean vault toilets, trash service. When water is off the rate is only $10/nt. Good to excellent paved roads to access, although definitely some elevation changes. Significant drop into the lake area from the highway. Big rigs ok at the first six campsites. No hookups. Water available seasonally.
