Trapper Springs Campground near Courtright Reservoir, California

Trapper Springs Campground

PG&E Kings River \ Southern Area

Trapper Springs Campground is in a stunning setting on the west shore of Courtright Reservoir.  Campsites are shaded by towering conifers with granite mountain peaks as a backdrop.  The 8300' elevation provides a cool respite from the summer valley heat.

The campground is generally open from late May through mid-October.  The 70 campsites are relatively flat and good for large RV's, but they do not have lake views.  Each campsite has a table and grill. The campground has vault toilets but no drinking water.  Campers may make reservations for campsites in loops 2 and 3 beginning in early February.  Loop 1 is for first-come-first-served campers.  Follow the link for PG&E Reservations \ Trapper Springs

Courtright Reservoir offers boating, under 10 mph, and fishing.  The area has many hiking opportunities at the nearby John Muir Wilderness and the Dinkey Lakes Wilderness.  Courtright Reservoir is distinguished by the mountain peaks, slopes and valleys along its shores, created by Ice Age glaciers.  You'd swear you were in Yosemite; without the crowds!  Wee-Mee-Kute Fishing access is one mile north of the campground.

This is a new area for American Land & Leisure.  We'll post photos as we get them.  Follow the link for more campgrounds in the beautiful Kings River Watershed
