Crags Campground

Crags Campground is one of several campgrounds along Robinson Creek, downstream from Twin Lakes in the Humboldt-Toiyabe National Forest. The campground is fairly exposed, set mostly amidst sage, with only few scattered trees for shade. Other campgrounds in the area of Robinson Creek are more sheltered. However, there are wonderful views of the Sawtooth Ridge from Crags Campground. It can serve as a base for fishing trips to the lakes and streams in the area as well as hiking outings into the Hoover Wilderness.

Supplies are 11 miles away in Bridgeport or less than a mile up the road at Twin Lakes Resort where they have a marina with boat rentals, a store, laundromat and showers, and an RV park.

Crags Campground has 21 standard sites for RVs, trailers, and tents. Five sites are listed under Management, which means they will be assigned upon arrival. Those five sites are all designated as accessible sites, reserved for people with disabilities. Crags Campground also has a Group Site.
