“Nice National Forest Service Campground”
Reviewed May 22, 2015
The campground is located beside South Twin Lake. Only the lower numbered sites that are on the east side of the loop have a view of the lake. There are many large Pine trees in the campground. Most sites are partially shaded. There is a restaurant, store, day use area and boat launch for non-motorized boats. There are no RV hookups. A nice trail circles the lake which is about one mile in length.
We stayed at site 17. This is a National Forest Service campground, so the site quality varies significantly. We attempted to setup our travel trailer in site 6 and 8 which have a nice view of the lake, but the sites were not level and were uneven. It was a bit awkward, so we decided to move around the loop to a more level site without ruts. Most of the sites are fairly level with the exception of 6 and 8. All sites are dirt pads with generous spacing between sites. Each site has a picnic table and fire pit. We didn't use the campground bathrooms or showers. The campground is very close to Forest Service road 4260 which is the main road into the area, so there is traffic noise from the road. There was no AT&T cell phone signal but we did have a useable signal with our Verizon hotspot with external antenna and booster.
Just across Forest Service road 4260 is West South Twin Lake campground which is beside Wickiup Reservoir. This is also a Forest Service campground with no RV hookups. Also across Forest Service road 4260 is Twin Lakes RV Park. The RV Park is beside Wickiup Reservoir and has full RV hookups. The RV Park feels more like a campground because of the large trees in the area.
