Clear Lake Campground
Located on the eastern shore of Clear Lake. Wheelchair accessible.
Clear Lake is not a natural lake but a reservoir created and managed under a long-term permit for agricultural irrigation off the Forest. The lake usually becomes increasingly shallow beginning in early July in order to meet these agricultural water rights needs.
