Easy access to the lake with all the amenities. Family friendly and a great staff. Meeks Bay trail head is a short walk away.

The great thing about the campground is the close access to the beach/lake. It is only about a 2-3 minute walk, depending on which campsite you're walking from. The Meeks Bay trail head is also across the street and about 25 yards down the road. In general, it's a beautiful campground for families/large groups. The sites are sandy and pretty flat. Don't forget to check out the local farmers market (May-Oct, every Thursday, 8-1) http://www.foothillfarmersmarket.com for local fruit, veggies and everything else.

Paddle from Meeks Bay to D.L. Bliss

The water at Meeks Bay is perfectly crystal clear, a mix of different blues and greens – you can see the bottom floor in most places.

Backpack to Crag Lake

Day 1: This trip is a great early season trip while you are waiting for the snow to melt in the high country or it could be a good first backpacking trip because of its proximity to the trailhead.
