Description

The best way to experience Silverwood Lake camping is to set up that tent right by the water, and Mesa Campground makes it easy. This enormous campground encircles the southwest tail of the lake, so you’ll have no excuse not to spend the whole day swimming, boating, fishing or just relaxing by the shore. Wildlife is everywhere, making it easy to forget you’re just a short drive from Los Angeles. Choose from 136 campsites, including seven walk-in sites and multiple group sites. Nearby parking and boat launches make it easy to unload your gear, and there are plenty of wooded trails nearby for when you need a break from the water.
