The picture attached is really misleading. It's nowhere near the lake. It's actually 30 minutes up a winding dirt road. I was never sent directions on how to get there. Google Maps points you to the Kelty Meadow Office, which shows it's 5 minutes or so from Bass lake. But you don't go to the office. There are no "superb views of the surrounding forest and mountains." You are simply tucked up in the woods. There is no running water. The camp host is aggressive. We got there late because of the lack of directions and there was no sheet with names/campsites so we just picked one. The camp host woke me up at 7 am to tell me i was in the wrong spot... but didn't have to move. Just on a power trip. Hipcamp, please change the photo.
