Overview

Overview

Grasshopper Flat is one of three family campgrounds located in the Lake Davis Recreation Area, which offers a wide variety of outdoor experiences year-round. The campground loops around a hilltop above the lake, providing campsites with sweeping views of the lake's crystal blue water.

Natural Features:

The 4,000-acre Lake Davis was created in 1967 for recreational opportunities, as well as to rejuvenate fish populations in nearby rivers and supply water to the town of Portola. The lake offers 32 miles of shoreline and is surrounded by tall pine trees.

Trees provide ample shade for the campground, however privacy is limited by a lack of understory. The campground is situated at an elevation of 5,900 feet. A variety of wildlife make its home near the campground.

Recreation:

In addition to camping, the area offers a wide variety of popular water-related activities, including fishing, boating and swimming. Numerous fishing access points are located around the perimeter of the lake. Free trout fishing days are hosted by state agencies in June and September.

Mountain biking, hunting and wildlife viewing are also available in the area. During winter months visitors enjoy ice fishing, snowmobiling and cross-country skiing.

Facilities:

There are multiple single-family campsites, as well as one large group site, all equipped with tables and campfire rings with grills. Each site can accommodate up to two vehicles. Flush toilets, coin-operated hot showers and drinking water are provided.

The campground can facilitate both tent and RV camping, and a dump station is provided less than a mile from the site.

Nearby Attractions:

The closest town is Portola, California, which is home to one of the largest railroad museums in the western United States. A state game refuge borders the lake to the east and the south.
