You'll find Packsaddle Campground near the Sierra Buttes and Packer Lake in Sierra City, California. There are 20 single sites to choose from, and while tent camping is most popular here, the campground also works for trailer camping. Equestrian campers have their pick of two sites with a shared corral and room for stock trailers. This busy campground consists of two loops: the first has spacious sites with pine and fir trees providing plenty of shade, and the second loop sits in a heavily forested area overlooking the first loop. Fido can come along for your camping adventure, but if they aren't in your tent, they must be on a leash.
Your spot at Packsaddle will come with a picnic table and a campfire ring, and drinking water is also available at the campground. Some of the campground's other features include self-pay stations, bear-safe food lockers, and a firewood vendor. Within a few miles of the campground, you'll also find fuel and restaurants.
Thanks to a wide variety of activities to enjoy in and around your campsite, you'll never be bored at Packsaddle! Several trailheads are nearby, and hikers can choose from more than 30 miles of trails in the Lakes Basin area. The Deer Lake Trail is a 2.9-mile path that you can trek on foot, bike, or horse. You can also access the Pacific Crest Trail nearby and hike a portion of this 2,650-mile path on foot with your dog on a leash, or on horseback. Anglers can fish for trout in the surrounding lakes, and Gold Lake also has a boat ramp. If you're up to try something different, there are a few spots nearby where you can pan for gold, as well as hunting areas during certain times of the year.
You and your pup will have a delightful time at this dynamic and exciting Californian campground!
