This tent-only, little cub campsite next to Big Lake Campground offers a quieter, more secluded camping experience and a good chance for wildlife sightings than its more motorized brethren up the shore. Located at the top of the Santiam Pass and surrounded by dense forest of hemlock and fir, sightings of black bears, deer, racoon, cougars and elk are not uncommon. Enjoy all the perks of camping on the lake, easy access to the Patjens Lake Trailhead and Pacific Crest Trail, and all of the basic camping amenities including bathroom facilities and drinking water. Camping this great comes at a price of $21.78 a night so make sure to bring that checkbook (or cash). Check website for closures.
