McGee Creek Campground

Area Status: Open

This 28 unit campground provides an excellent "close-to-the-trailhead" location to camp as a jumping off point for adventures in the McGee Canyon area or as a pleasant sunny location for family camping. Each campsite has a shade pavilion as there are few trees here. The campground is 2 miles from the trailhead and 4 miles from Crowley Lake.
