Fresh mountain air, tall trees and a nearby fishing lake. Ahh—that’s what we call camping. Find all of this and more at Beardsley Dam Campground, just a few short hours away from all that San Francisco busyness. Camp right in the forest and take it easy for a day (or two!). If you’re yearning to explore the nearby area a bit more, you’ve got Beardsley Dam and the Stanislaus Forest right at your feet.
