    Overview

    Overview

    Lower Billy Creek Campground is located on Huntington Lake near the Kaiser Wilderness. The adjacent Billy Creek Guard Station Museum provides historical overviews of Huntington Lake, Native Americans and the Forest Service.

    Every site at Lower Billy Creek offers scenic lake views. The location of this camp makes it possible to discover all the activities and attractions at Huntington Lake, and it's an excellent base for further exploration of the Kaiser Wilderness.

    Natural Features:

    This small campground is nestled among fir and pine trees within the Sierra National Forest on the western slope of the central Sierra Nevada. The forest 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:

    Many hiking trails are in the area, including Rancheria Falls, Indian Pools and Black Point. Hikers and horseback riders can access the 12-mile Kaiser Loop Trail, which connects to a network of trails within the Kaiser Wilderness.

    Huntington Lake offers swimming, sailing, boating, canoeing, kayaking, fishing and water skiing. Additionally, California Land Management sponsors a variety of interpretive programs and nature walks throughout the summer at several locations in the area.

    Facilities:

    The campground has dirt parking spurs, but it can be difficult to maneuver RVs due to tight spaces and the close proximity of the trees. Each site has a picnic table, food storage locker and campfire ring. Vault toilets and drinking water are provided.

    Nearby Attractions:

    The 84-mile Sierra Vista Scenic Byway (Highway 168) makes a great day trip from the Huntington Lake area.
