tent, RV and group campsites with convenient lake access.

If you are a nature lover, looking for leisure, or just want

to finally use that gone-fishin' sign, this is the place for you.

Being situated in the heart of the High Sierras means our season dates can vary depending on snow and access,

but with these views we wouldn't have it any other way!

We aim to open the gates June 1st thru October 1st. 


We strive to provide a unique and rustic camp experience catered to your needs. For your convivence our Camp Store/Office is open 9am - 5pm and has many items such as wood, sunscreen, bug spray, towels, fishing accessories and much more.

We can't wait to see you at camp, so make your reservation today!

Our Sites

Our property offers a one-of-a-kind camp experience with plenty of options to fit your needs.  All sites have water hookups (no sewer or electric), and are either waterside or a short walk to the beach.

A quick note on pricing and campsite capacity: we book according to Units.  What is a Unit, you ask?

Let's get into the math:

 One RV Unit = 1 RV + 1 tent + 1 vehicle + 4 people over the age of 12

One Tent Unit = 2 tents (site size permitting) + 1 vehicle + 4 people over the age of 12

There are opportunities to add "Extras" (additional person, vehicle, pet, etc.) to your reservation at the time of booking but if you are interested in going over a sites guest limit, please contact our Bucks Lake Team at for approval,
