College Campground

  

Shaded by dense fir and pine trees, College Campground is located on Huntington Lake near the Kaiser Wilderness. The camp features tent-only sites in open, meadow-like spaces or wooded sites among pine and fir trees. Some sites have lake views and each site has a table, fire ring, and grill. Marina and boat launch is nearby or visitors can have the option of mooring their boats nearby some of the sites. College Campground's proximity to the Kaiser Wilderness offers the chance to explore a wide network of hiking trails. This wilderness area is known for its scenic alpine and meadow views. 

Located nearby is the Billy Creek Guard Station museum, providing historical overviews on Huntington Lake, Native Americans and the Forest Service. California Land Management sponsors a variety of interpretive programs throughout the summer at several locations in the Huntington Lake area. Scheduled programs are posted at campgrounds throughout the Huntington Lake basin, and at the Eastwood Visitor Center. Visit the Eastwood visitor center for area information.
