Nestled amongst the wooded conifer forest west of Lake Alpine, this campground is your easy access point to a good time. This place is close to all the fun, family oriented, RV friendly, and s’more ready. Just make sure you pack the bug spray and sunscreen because you’re going to be outside all day. Between taking a swim or fishing in the lake, and hiking or biking the nearby trails, there’s just so much to do. Alpine Lake Campground is the spot! Just make sure you get there before the crowds, because this is a first-come, first-served campground.
