Faser Flat Campground

Fraser Flat Campground is spread in a park-like setting among mature trees along the South Fork of the Stanislaus River, north of Cold Springs on Highway 108. Recently renovated, the campground is adjacent to a day-use area with two fishing piers. Many visitors like to set up their RVs or trailers for extended stays in the pleasant surroundings. Trails along the river lead upstream to Strawberry, giving anglers easy access to miles of river. Pinecrest Lake is only a short drive away.

The 38 first-come, first-served sites are often filled on summer weekends.
