    Overview

    Overview

    Mary Smith Campground is located off County Road 105, two miles north of the town of Lewiston, CA. This campground offers excellent fishing and tent camping.

    This campground was picked as one of California's prettiest lake campgrounds in Sunset Magazine. Many of the sites have shore access to Lewiston Lake.

    Natural Features:

    The campsites are tucked into a mixed forest of conifer and deciduous trees, surrounded by abundant wildflowers. Every site offers a view of Lewiston Lake and the surrounding Trinity Alps.

    Lewiston Lake is about five miles long, about 70 feet deep, and sits at an elevation of 1,902 feet. It is a favorite among anglers and paddlers.

    Recreation:

    The area offers excellent opportunities for fishing, kayaking, hiking and wildlife viewing. Pine Cove boat ramp is within four miles, and Fairview launching area on Trinity Lake is nine miles north. Motorized boats are limited to ten miles per hour.

    Rainbow trout are abundant, and brown and brook trout are common. This is a good lake for a float tube and excellent fly fishing. The area offers wonderful wildlife viewing opportunities.

    Facilities:

    There are 11 walk-in campsites and six prime camping unit sites all with on-site fire pits and picnic tables. The prime camping unit sites are all $65/night. The sites offer fair to outstanding privacy. There are both flush and vault toilets, and drinking water is provided.

    With the exception of the large cluster of sites at the campground entrance (prime camping site #'s 2, 3, 4, 5a, 5b, and 9 ADA compliant), the remaining sites are arranged in small groups. No trailers are allowed and there are no parking spurs.

    Prime Camping Unit & Site Amenities:

    Inside: over-sized queen beds with feather down comforters and pillows (linen service provided), two bed-side nightstands, over-sized rugs and a boot bench.
    Outside: front deck equipped with two armchairs and coffee table, fire pit and picnic table.
