Gold Lake Campground is located in the Lakes Basin Recreation Area. Located nine miles southwest of Graeagle, California, this recreation area has special geological features. There is breathtaking scenery and over 20 small lakes nearby, most of which are accessible by hiking trails. This area provides a multitude of recreational activities including camping, fishing, boating, hunting, mountain biking, horseback riding, picnicking, hiking, backpacking, swimming, windsurfing and nature study. This campground is located along the shores of Gold Lake at an elevation of 6400 feet. This campground has 37 sites with tables, fire rings, food lockers and toilet facilities. Garbage service is provided. There is no water. They did get about a foot of snow this last weekend, but anticipate it to be gone in the next 2 weeks. The campsites may still be a little damp. In case the weather decides to stay wet and cold we are open to other locations. One suggestion has been Davis Creek county park.
Dogs are welcome. Directions:
Take Highway 89 southeast from Graegle, California for two miles. Proceed south on Gold Lake Highway for 10 miles to Gold Lake. Location
