“Fishing, hiking trails, and access to hot showers under the Jeffrey Pines. Loved it!”

We totally scored getting the best site in the campground (#20), so our experience was colored by the sheer awesomeness of our site. After the epic snow pack the lake was high and although it’s close, you can’t see the reservoir from any of the RV sites. However, there are just a few sites with fantastic views of a smaller lake adjacent to the larger Indian Creek Reservoir. We spent the evenings at our campfire watching through the pines as water birds cavorted across the lake, dusk turned the sky purple pink, and coyotes conducted their nightly sing-along. Moments you just want to capture with perfect clarity to pull out and enjoy over and over again.
Overall the sites in the campground are a mixed bag. There is one loop for tents only and a second loop signed for tents and RV’s. Many of the sites are small and too sloped for any but the smallest rig or car camper. They are also upcharging ($32!) for “double spaces” that are nowhere near large enough for two RV’s.
There is a bathhouse with flush toilets and showers, although during our stay several of the showers were out of order leaving just two functional showers for the entire tent/RV loop. Each site has a picnic table, fire pit, bear box and grills. Boat access to the reservoir is nearby and there are hiking trails leaving from the campground.
We had 2 bars of Verizon 3G unboosted, and managed 2 bars of 4G boosted.
