East Lake Campground

Area Status: Open
This area is Open
 

Most sites in this campground are either on the lake or no more than a couple minute walk away. There are opportunities for bird watching, bicycling, sightseeing, and canoeing.  East Lake is a little shadier than the other lakes and is a perfect way to beat the heat of the summer. There are nearby hikes into the lava rock and close by waterfalls.
