Woodcamp Campground is located on the west shore of Jackson Meadow Reservoir. It is surrounded by pine and fir trees. Jackson Meadow Reservoir is a gorgeous high elevation lake with good fishing. There are excellent opportunites for boating, canoeing, water skiing, swimming and fishing. Anglers will find rainbow and brown trout. A boat ramp and designated swim beach are located within the recreation area.
A half-mile interpretive nature trail wanders through the campground. A portion of the Pacific Crest Trail meanders along the east side of the lake. Hunting and biking are popular activities in the surrounding area. Snow pack determines when the campground opens.
