Baker Campground draws a steady flow of campers, partly because of its proximity to Kennedy Meadows and partly because of its beautiful setting along the Stanislaus River. Located along Highway 108 about 27 miles from Pinecrest, Baker Campground offers 44 campsites. Some of the sites are doubles and 2 are walk-in.
Excellent hikes into the Emigrant Wilderness begin at Kennedy Meadows. Among the popular destinations are Relief Reservoir and Kennedy Lake. Trail rides can be arranged at the Kennedy Meadows Pack Station. For a guide to the best fishing around Kennedy Meadows, see Dave's Sierra Fishing - Kennedy Meadows.
