You’ll get baked all weekend long…by the sun at this majestic lake. You really can’t beat this glassy beauty. And did we mention you are next to Desolation Wilderness? Go do some serious exploring and dance among the poppin’ wildflowers. This campground offers plenty of space for large groups, so you can gather the whole gang here for camp vibes."

We came here on the suggestion of rangers when we failed to find an open space at the neighbouring lakes before the 4th of July rush, and they were spot on about it being worth the drive. Quite a few spots were open and we snagged #4 & 14, both of which were close to bathrooms and 14 having a water spigot next to it. We had a slight view of the lake from #4 and views of the boulders from #14; #4 is a pretty decent sized space which can easily accommodate at least 4 or 5 tents. All the sites came with a table, bear box, fire ring, and freestanding grill; OK amount of space between sites. Skeeters & flies ate us alive but relief was found in the lake. Water was clear, shallow (3 ft?), and a great temp. Can't wait to head back!
