Hop in the car Lassie, we’re going on a camping trip! You’ll either be stoked or scrooged by the fact that this campground is dog-friendly (we’d like to assume the former). Either way, it’s great to know! Also good to know is that this campground is located right smack in front of a sweet mountain lake, and nearby Bolan Lake Trail #1245 will won’t lead you astray as you summit Bolan Mountain for a five alarm view from the fire lookout. All of the above for $5/night? Book ‘em up! There currently is no conditions report available, so use your best judgement, listen to your knees--whatever you need to do to inform your safe travels to this campground!

The road turns into gravel miles before the campsite. Be ready for any sorts of road conditions, as it's basically a backroad! Don't worry, though. It's worth it!

View from a trail the circumnavigates the lake. An easy, short, and fun hike! Plus the trailhead is right near the campsite! The top of Bolan Lake, around a 3.5 mile round trip hike.
