Billy Creek Campgrounds
Two campgrounds rest along Billy Creek at the northwestern end of Huntington Lake in the Sierra National Forest. Recently upgraded, Lower Billy Creek Campground is on the lakeshore in a forest of pine and fir trees. Every campsite has a lake view. Upper Billy Creek Campground is just across the road in a forest of pine, fir, and cedar trees. Some sites at the upper campground have lake views, others overlook Billy Creek. Visitors to the area enjoy boating, fishing, hiking, and relaxing in the fresh mountain air.
Lower Billy Creek Campground has 12 sites, all of which can accommodate RVs, trailers, and tents. Upper Billy Creek has 43 campsites. Twelve of them are designated for tents only; the rest can accommodate RVs, trailers, and tents. In the summer, interpretive programs are offered at the Upper Billy Creek amphitheater.
Forest Service Notice: "Upper Billy Creek Campground have been undergoing renovations since 2016. There is a possibility renovation work may be completed in 2017, and the campground would be available for advanced reservations. Please continue to check back for status updates. Thank you for your patience as we work to improve this facility."
Before entering a campsite, campers are asked to check in at the Eastwood CLM office located at the east end of Huntington Lake.
