Doe Point Campground & Day Use


Area Status: Open
Doe Point Campground sign.

This remote and picturesque campground is in the midst of old-growth forest and adjacent to Fish Lake, offering some of the best fishing in the area. A boat launch for Fish Lake (speed limit 10 mph) is located at adjacent Fish Lake Campground, and many amenities are offered at nearby Fish Lake Resort. Numerous hiking trails are within easy access, including the Fish Lake, High Lakes, Brown Mountain, and the famous Pacific Crest Trail, as well as the Sky Lakes Wilderness and Mt. McLaughlin Trail systems. Additional campgrounds nearby include Fish Lake Resort, the adjacent Fish Lake Campground and North Fork Campgrounds on either side of Doe Point. Willow Prairie, Whiskey Springs and Fourbit Ford Campgrounds are several miles away, off County Road 821

This campground is located on the northern shores of Fish Lake. Some sites have a lake view, and there is plenty of shade from the fir and pine trees for those hot afternoons.  Fish Lake is a reservoir used for irrigation, possibly resulting in low water levels in August and September.
