Attractions & Considerations

The campground is next to Cimarrona Creek, with views of the meadow and reservoir to the south. It’s only a short walk to fish in the creek.

Williams Creek Reservoir is large and stocked with kokanee salmon and trout.

You’ll find a National Forest boat ramp 1/2 mile north of Williams Creek Campground. Motorized boating is allowed on Williams Creek Reservoir, but water skiing and sail surfboards are prohibited, because the reservoir is restricted to wake-free boating.

Dispersed camping is not allowed within 300 yards of the campground.

One visitor reported, "Most sites are well treed and private; it is near the end of the road, so not much road noise. Can see the reservoir from sites, but it's a good walk, or short drive to get to. I'd rank this one even with Teal...This is more private, but Teal has better views and is closer to the reservoir, so if you want privacy go here, if you prefer better views go to Teal."
