Silver Lake Campground is nestled next to Silver Lake In the Sierra Nevada of California and the scenery of the Ansel Adams Wilderness. This is a great base camp for longer camps and features excellent fishing, boating, hiking, horseback riding and world class photography opportunities. There are some creek side and lake side campsites and the nearby boat ramp allows for fishing boats.

Silver Lake is nestled deep in a valley in the Sierra Nevada in a deep valley at the base of Carson Peak below the Reversed Creek and Rush Creek confluence.

The Silver Lake Resort was originally known as “Carson’s Camp,” and has been famous for quality mountain recreation since 1916. A pack station is located across highway 158 to allow for horse back riding or extended stay expeditions into the high county. There are plenty of trails which open access to the photographic opportunities in The Ansel Adams Wilderness and Yosemite National Park. The Rush Creek Trail interconnects with the Pacific Crest Trail system and the John Muir Trail, and the local backcountry is fabulous.

This campground is located in bear county, so prepare accordingly and camp responsibly. Bear boxes are provided and must be used (typical bear box size 48″x 30″x 36″).
