Loafer Creek

Just completed!! There is now 15 campsites for a HORSE CAMP. Complete with restrooms, tethering and feeding stations near each campsite. And a Horse Washing station that is handicapped accessible.

A camping area with 137 developed family sites is located at Loafer Creek. Each site contains a parking space, table and stove. Piped drinking water and combination building with modern restrooms, hot showers and laundry tubs are nearby. There are no trailer hookups (these are available at Bidwell Canyon), however, trailers can use the sites. Trailer campers are asked to collect their waste water in a container and dispose of it in the waste water drains located at various points throughout the campground. A holding dumping station is available for self-contained trailers. The area's 100 individual picnic sites are turfed and sprinkled regularly to hold down the dust, and a sandy swimming beach is located where Loafer Creek empties into the lake. A large paved parking area and a boat launching ramp complete the facilities here. >

Bidwell Camp

Facilities at Bidwell Canyon include a shoreside marina, complete with fuel dock, boat rental, covered slips, open mooring, boat storage, and pumping station for boat holding tanks. For campers there are trailer facilities complete with hookups, a boat repair shop and seven lane launching ramp.

Lime Saddle

The Lime Saddle area is operated by a concessionaire. Here visitors will find a paved parking area, a three lane boat launching ramp, picnic facilities, and chemical toilets. The marina offers boat docking, gas and oil, fishing and boating supplies, boat rentals and a snack bar.

Boat-In Camp

Several boat-in camps are located around the lake. These campgrounds are identified by signs located at the beach area. These campgrounds can be reached only by boat and camping is allowed only in the designated campsites. Directions to the camp of your choice can be obtained at the park entrance station or launch area. Each camp contains between eighteen and thirty individual campsites. The camps have cleared and leveled spots for pitching tents, pit toilets, garbage cans, a table and a stove at each site. No water is piped to these areas, so bring chemicals to purify the lake water. There are two ways to reach the two most southerly boat-in camps. Craig Saddle, east of the spillway, is located behind an island-like land mass and can be approached from either the Middle or South Fork. Craig Saddle is the only boat-in camp with usable water. Foreman Point can be reached from the southeast from the lake itself or from the North Fork.
