In the case of motorcycles, the first two are considered as one vehicle for determining additional vehicle fees. The third and fourth motorcycle would also be considered as one vehicle. No additional vehicle fees are collected for bicycles.

    Overview

    Overview

    Fish Creek Campground is a small, primitive camp offering standard and tent-only sites. The campground is surrounded by mountains and tucked into a shady spot beneath oaks and pines. Sites are located along Fish Creek.

    Natural Features:

    Fish Creek Campground is located in the Bass Lake Ranger District. At an elevation of 3,400 feet, Bass Lake is a very popular area known for its variety of fish, as well as the bald and golden eagles that make their home here.

    The Sierra National Forest, located on the western slope of the central Sierra Nevada, is known for its spectacular mountain scenery and abundant natural resources.

    The terrain includes rolling, oak-covered foothills, heavily forested middle elevation slopes and the starkly beautiful alpine landscape of the High Sierra.

    Recreation:

    Hikers can access the nearby French Trail, a 12.7 mile foot trail that extends from Squaw Dome Trailhead to Logan Meadow Trailhead. Other activities include hunting in designated areas and fishing.

    Facilities:

    Each unit has a picnic table, grill and fire ring. Vault toilets are provided, but campers must bring drinking water.

    Nearby Attractions:

    Nearby Mammoth Pool Reservoir offers a variety of recreational activities, including fishing, boating, hiking and wildlife viewing. Campers can use a pay phone, as well as get gas and supplies at Wagner's Mammoth Pool Resort.

    A popular pastime in the area is to take a drive on the 83-mile Sierra Vista Scenic Byway.
