Dorabelle Campground

Recently reconstructed (2014) Dorabelle Campground is on the west shore of Shaver Lake in the Sierra National Forest. The campground is about 2 miles from Camp Edison and only ½ mile from the community of Shaver Lake. Shaver Lake is a very popular recreation area with fishing, boating, waterskiing, jet skiing, hiking, swimming, and picnicking.

Dorabelle Campground has 61 campsites. Nineteen of the sites are designated as tent-only; the others can accommodate RVs, trailers, and tents. Many campsites are shaded by mature conifers while others are more open to the sun. Some campsites have views of the lake. Boats can be moored nearby.

There is a minimum 2-night stay on weekends and 3 nights on holiday weekends. Nearly ⅓ of the campsites are wheelchair accessible, but these campsites are open to others if no other campsites are available.
