“Great sites and beautiful lake...”

Reviewed Dec 07, 2015

Overall Rating

Very nice campsites that are large enough for most RVs. if you look at a site map you can see that many are pull through types. I managed to get my 31 foot class A situated with little trouble. As you would expect some sites are more level than others.

Be ready for a 6 mile drive with a fair amount of washboard and ruts. Not impossible if you take it slow. The road is pretty much chip rock.

Well worth the drive as the lake is perfect for paddling a kayak.

And there is an excellent, lengthy hike that takes you by the cinder cone. That also has a hiking trail to the top... pretty amazing. They have a "no pet" sign but I took my pooch just the same... no issues.

This will be dry camping with water available by the flush toilets. There are trees at all sites so solar will be spotty.

Note:

1) The group area can be noisy so check to see if it has been booked and by whom. And pick a spot away from that area.

2) No cell coverage

3) There is another camp area (free?) on the left next to a creek about 2 miles before the Butte Lake Campground. That area will take reasonable sized RVs (<33 feet).
