Campground Camping

Some of the sites are located on the reservoir and the whole campground is across the road from South Twin. On the South Twin side just across from the entry is the entry to South Twin Lake Campground and South Twin Lake Resort where you can get hot showers (for a fee) and groceries. There is a water system within the campground.  Easy access to both lakes has made this campground a popular one for boaters. The sites are fairly large, but if you have an RV the nearby campgrounds, South Twin and Gull Point may be more easily accessed. The sites here are a little more isolated from one another than the other areas.
