The Florida Campground is 4 miles north of Miller Creek Campground above Lemon reservoir, with 20 shaded campsites. Do not trespass on the private property adjacent to the south side of the campground. A few short pull-thru and back-in sites can accommodate larger RVs. Tent campsites are well-shaded and near the river. There are no individual reservable at Florida Campground. Large groups can reserve the Florida Group Area, just beyond the regular camping area, which accommodates up to 75 people. The group area has 6 double tables, a buffet table, and 4 fire grates. RV parking is limited. Near the campground entrance, the East Florida Road (Forest Rd. 597) winds steeply uphill. The Lost Lake and Stump Lake Trails begin along this road, offering short, easy hikes to backcountry lakes.

Attractions & Considerations
Host on site. Potable water in season, trash pickup in season, vault toilets, tables, fireplaces (firewood available, you gather).
After Labor Day, campground host is no longer on duty and camping fees are deposited in fee tubes. Toilets will remain open. If sites have water and trash service they are full price. otherwise they are half price.
