Overview

Overview

Ackerman Campground is a lakeside facility that's a favorite of fishermen. It is located in the beautiful Trinity Lake/Weaverville Area of Shasta-Trinity National Forest, which is part of the Whiskeytown-Shasta-Trinity National Recreation Area.

The campground is open year-round for walk-ins. Reservations are accepted May 21st through September 7th.

Natural Features:

The campground is situated at an elevation of 1,900 feet on the western shore of Lewiston Lake at the base of Trinity Dam. Some deciduous and conifer trees are found around the campground, but it is mostly unshaded.

Cold, crystal-clear Lewiston Lake is roughly 5 miles long and a half-mile wide. It features a mountainous shoreline and a topography that ranges from marshlands to dense forest.

Recreation:

The area offers excellent opportunities for fishing, boating and wildlife viewing. Lewiston Lake is 610 acres and offers good fishing for kokanee salmon, as well as rainbow, brown and brook trout.

There are two accessible boat ramps near this facility. Fairview boat ramp access to Trinity Lake is 3 miles north and Pine Cove boat ramp access to Lewiston Lake is 2 miles south. Motorized boats are limited up to 10 miles per hour.

Lewiston Lake is a popular destination for kayakers. Hikers can enjoy the 2-mile North Lakeshore Trail.

Facilities:

This campground can accommodate trailers and RVs up to 40 feet. Each site is equipped with a picnic table and a campfire ring with grill. The parking spurs are either grass or gravel.

Drinking water is available seasonally, typically from April 1st through October 31st, and flush toilets are provided.
