At an elevation of 5289, this campground features nine camping sites. All campsites include picnic tables and fire rings, but no garbage receptacles. *Remember to “pack it in, pack it out.”

There is one vault toilet and water is available at Clear Springs Forest Camp, approximately 1.5 miles to the west on Forest Service Road 047.

Besides fishing, hiking on the nearby trails, and relaxing at Happy Camp, remember to bring your horseshoes to use at the horseshoe pits or picnic under the historic shelters. The picnic shelters were built in the 1930’s by Civilian Conservation Corps.
