Oh la la—French Meadows Campground is simply magnifique! This campground offers the best of both worlds; there’s plenty of shade to be found at campsites nestled within a coniferous forest, but if you’re looking to catch some sun chill out on the sandy banks of the French Meadows Reservoir, just a few feet away.
