The campground, near the Desolation Wilderness, has three unnamed sections - one tent only, one equestrian, and one for tents and RVs (combined). The tent-only section loops through a stand of Lodgepole pine and fir near Wrights Lake. Many camp sites in this section have a view of the lake. Wildflowers and grass provide a pleasing understory, but little privacy. Only a few camp sites tucked in among boulders do have nice privacy. The combined section has three overlapping loops in what was once a meadow but now has a stand of young Lodgepole pine providing shade to most camp sites. This section has several walk-in tent sites, and along with rest of the section, minimal privacy. Close to the campground's amphitheater and Twin Lakes Trailhead, it is a walk to Wrights Lake. The equestrian section, for horse campers only, is a large loop just before the campground's entrance. This section circles a grassy meadow with some camp sites adjacent to South Fork Silver Creek. Lodgepole pine provide some shade. There are no tethers, corrals or watering troughs. Overall, this is an excellent, attractive campground. The lake is a wonderful, quiet place to explore with inflatable rafts, kayakes, canoes, etc. Swimming, although not provided by the Forest Service, is an ongoing activity. Reservations are recommended for tent-only and combined sections. This is bear country; practice safe food storage techniques.
