Where to Camp Lakeside in California

By

From the granite peaks of the Sierra Nevada to the remote scenery of the Marble Mountains, there's nothing quite like lakeside camping.

California campers are spoiled when it comes to beautiful campsite. Exhibit A: this list of alpine lakes where you can lay your head.


With plenty of snow in the High Sierra this season, you might want to stick to lower elevations until later in the summer, but everything beneath 7,000 feet should be good to go by the end of June.

Whether you prefer to pull up to your lakeside camping spot in your car, go for a quick overnight in the backcountry, or spend days at a time in the wilderness, these lakes sites are just the ticket for a refreshing experience outdoors.
