This is a small but popular campground just north of the South Twin Resort. Located next to North Twin Lake, this site offers opportunities for fishing in the summer as well as the winter. There is also a little beach at the shallow end of the lake that is great for wading and swimming.
There's an interpretive trail leaving the campground near the water that informs visitors about "dwarf mistletoe" infecting the ponderosa pine trees in the area.
There is a boat launch area within this campground.

There are a few great sites right on the small North Twin Lake. The campground is mostly shaded and rarely is full, but the good sites do disappear early in the weekend, so if you are camping here, you might want to start early in the week. There is an RV dump station just after the entry of the campground toward Gull Point. This lake was created by steam explosions, caused when hot volcanic magma hit groundwater.
