I see folks in kayaks on a lake. Is that Grizzly Reservoir? Is it accessible from the campsites at Portal?

Overall Rating

Went here on Labor Day weekend a few years ago, and we were the only people there. It is at the near-end of a pretty rocky/rough road, at least 20 miles from the highway (not necessarily as the crow flies), so I definitely recommend a 4wd vehicle with good clearance. I was in a Subaru Forester.
