New campground with forest and meadow campsites now available, crowned by Dün Cærrę'g on Little Round Top with panoramic vistas of the High Sierras, including over 50 named peaks, the Great Western Divide, Kings Canyon National Park, Blue Canyon, and the Central Valley. Dün Cærrę'g campsites are 4 miles from Shaver Lake, which offers boat rentals and horseback riding, near seven other lakes in the mid-Sierras, China Peak Mountain Resort (skiing and mountain biking), Tollhouse Rock (rock climbing), groves of Giant Sequoias, Mono Hot Springs, and sits astride the trailhead for countless miles of popular hiking, horsing, and OHV trails in the Sierra National Forest. Foot, motor, horse and buggy campers welcome. Come join us for Alpenglow! Due to extreme fire danger campfires may be disallowed at any time. Please check with your host for today's allowance. If allowed, there's plenty of pickings nearby for your campfire interests. Please burn responsibly. No unattended fires. Although RV spaces exist, RVs towing trailers may find it a little tight. Recommend 60' or less, nevertheless we've had a 69 foot rig land successfully. Dün Cærräïg is literally off the grid. We're known as the orphans of Sierra Cedars, hence refer to our neighborhood as "The Orphanage ". Modern navigation programs, including Google Maps, may mislead you to the incorrect location. Once you book a reservation Hipcamp expands our profile to include detailed directions. Print them out or screenshot them as cell signal is spotty to say the least, and there is no wifi. We've spotted 10 address and name signs at key intersections as you approach the campus. The road into the camp is an old logging dirt road (museums nearby). It is passable, but not perfect. We are adding gravel as we speak, hoping for completion in the near future.

This was a great camp with a super friendly host and close access to lakes, rivers, and trails. Definitely would recommend and plan on staying there again when I'm in the area!

Art was super welcoming and checked in on us each day to share places to explore and things to do. If you’re in to disc golf, head over to China Peak, you won’t be sorry!
The campsite had everything we needed. Great trip!!

These people truly understand what means to be in touch with the outdoors and the campsite they've created was exceptional. We had bon fires under the open skies and made many new friends. I will be back I just don't know when.

David, Bree and Art were such great hosts! My daughter, fur baby and I had such a great time here and exploring around the area. We were looking for something with more privacy and away from the city and we were not disappointed! We stayed at the Toad Hall site and had a perfect view to the Milky Way at night. The swing set was a pleasent surprise that my daughter really enjoyed. It was also nice that we could collect firewood from around the property.

EntranceDün Cærrę'g at Shaver LakeThe Milky Way was amazing from here.Lots of opportunities to explore and hike around the campsite.

Art was super helpful and accommodating once we got there. But getting there is super confusing - I booked day of and my email with directions didn’t download all the way to my phone with the horrible service up there. Luckily we were able to find it after about an hour of searching. It’s a big empty lot with a bunch of sites on it to camp. You’re definitely close to your neighbors so if you’re looking for peace it’s probably not here but everyone was super helpful and so nice at the property. Would definitely recommend if you’re up there.

Btw this was my first time using hipcamps as well.

We LOVED camping here and plan to come back. It was so beautiful and spacious. Clear skies with thousands of stars, beautiful trees to hang hammocks from, and a sunset over the mountains like no other. We had a great time and Dave and his team were so hospitable and friendly! Highly recommend!!

Very nice and private camping with friendly hosts. Easy to access and close to all that the Shaver lake area has to offer.

Dün Çærrï'g was exactly the kind of site I wanted for a quiet get-away. The area is beautiful and surrounded by trees and you feel like you're in a postcard version of what camping in California should be. David was extremely helpful and answered all my questions prior to my arrival. We got lucky in that we were one of only two campsites booked during the weekend so we had a lot of privacy. I suppose it would get louder with all the camp sites occupied, but from what I understand these sites are bigger than what you'd get at a state-run site, so it's still a "win." There are bees flitting during the day but they are harmless and are gone by nightfall.
