The Moore Creek Campground sits on the McLeod Arm of Shasta Lake in the Eldorado National Forest near Pioneer, California. There are 12 sites at Moore Creek, and altogether they can accommodate 90 people, which makes this a popular destination for group camping. Some areas of the campground are shaded while others are sunny, and sites accommodate tents, and trailers and RVs up to 16 feet. Your pooch can come along too, but they must always be attended and on a leash. At night, they must be in your tent or RV.
Every campsite at Moore Creek comes equipped with a campfire ring, a grill, a picnic table, tent pads, and paved parking spurs. You'll also find a bear-safe food locker at each site, and they must be used to prevent drawing bears into the campground. The campground also has drinking water and vault toilets, but there are no showers. If you plan to camp in an RV, be advised that there are no hookups and no dump station.
During your stay at Moore Creek, you'll have access to all of the fun activities within the Eldorado National Forest and on Shasta Lake. The lake has more than 365 miles of shoreline, and there are several launch ramps, marinas, and boat rental facilities near the campground, including the Hirz Bay boat launch ramp for $12 a day. A budget-friendly activity to enjoy on especially hot days is taking a free one-hour guided tour of the Shasta Dam. The Shasta Caverns also have dinner cruises and guided tours of the caves.
Your group site at Moore Creek will cost $130 a night, and up to 25 vehicles are permitted at the campground. Campers must book at least a week in advance to receive the access code for the campground, or you risk being locked out of the campground. Group camping always requires reservations, but smaller groups can get walk-in spots when they're available.
