Snuggled in the eastern slopes of the Sierra Nevada between the towns of Woodfords and Markleeville in California, this dog-friendly campground sprawls over 160 acres. The Indian Creek Reservoir’s west bank touches the campground, providing reservoir views to numerous campsites. It is quite popular for fishing and boating.
The campground is in a forest of Jeffrey, ponderosa, and pinyon pines. Though the area’s elevation runs from 5,600 feet to 6,400 feet, the campground is usually quite warm, especially in the summer. You get nice shade for most sites. Make sure Fido is on a leash and attended to at all times.
There are 30 sites here. You can bring RVs or tents with a maximum length of 34 feet. Then you have 10 sites on the walk-in tent loop with parking close by. One group site (for tents only) is available for a maximum of 40 campers. Flush toilets, hot showers, and a paid sanitary dump station are provided. Drinking water is also available. You also get fire rings with grills, picnic tables, and food storage lockers. The day-use area has 4 picnic sites, a large parking lot, a boat ramp and restrooms that also feature flush toilets.
There is plenty of fun stuff you can do, including hiking, mountain biking, bicycling, and picnicking, as well as water-related activities like fishing, sailing, and whitewater rafting. You can also delve into sightseeing, rock collecting, nature study, and wildlife viewing. Just remember this is bear country. Also remember to carry poop bags and clean up after your doggo as you explore the campground. Fishing remains the most popular activity here; both the reservoir and river are stocked with trout.
The campground is also a great place to snap some memorable photos with your pup. You and Fido have the perfect chance to share a frame with the snow-capped peaks, beautiful waterfalls and whooshing streams throughout the landscape.
