Description

Located in northern California near the Sierra Buttes, Diablo Campground is sandwiched between the Yuba River to the south and Packer Creek to the northeast, making it a perfect fishing getaway. Canines are welcome here, provided they stay on a leash throughout their stay.

A huge trail network is available for campers here in the adjacent Packer Lake region of Tahoe National Forest, with the trailhead for the Pacific Crest Trail being found just outside of the campgrounds themselves. These multiple paths take guests to several different mountainside lakes and streams, perfect for nature spotting or a daytime fishing trip. Due to the sheer amount of trails here, guests are encouraged to visit the Pacific Crest Trail Association's website for an up-to-date trail map in PDF form. If Fido comes along for your forest explorations, make sure that you clean up any messes they might drop as you walk around.

Diablo has 19 total campsites for overnight guests to choose from. Water sources here are scarce, which means overnight visitors will have to purify any water that they collect from the nearby streams. No modern restroom facilities are included here, but there are vault toilets for convenience. There's plenty of room for pop-ups and trailers in case you've come with your motorhome in tow. If you've got your canine with you, make sure they stay in either your tent or camper throughout the evening.  The costs listed here are for overnight stays and are not indicative of park admission costs.

For guests looking to fish, Diablo is located right next to Packer Lake, which offers opportunities to drop a line throughout the summer months. Popular species found here are rainbow and brook trout. These fish are regularly stocked, though management plans regarding fish species are constantly changing. If you're curious about the regulations regarding a specific lake or stream, make sure to visit the Tahoe National Forest's website. Dogs are allowed to accompany anglers, provided they're on a six-foot leash.
