Shaver Lake, CA

Can anyone recommend a full hook-up campground near Shaver Lake or Huntington Lake, CA? We will be traveling with grand kids so we would like something interesting for them too.

Thanks in advance.

We have stayed at the Edison Campground at Shaver. I think all sites have elec and water and cable if I remember correctly. They also have a number of full hook up sites, but the dump is easy to use there.

Fun for the kids....are you kidding....they have a whole lake. Wonderful place.

Thanks Rich & Cork. I understand they only take reservations by mail or FAX. Did you have any difficulty getting a reservation? Also, can their sites accommodate a 36 ft. MH?

Thanks again,

Camp Edison is a top notch campground. Well run, clean, absolutely gorgeous. Yes it has sites big enough for your rig. My truck and trailer run 53' and I had room for another car. My favorite loop is the Dogwood loop. It was very spacious. It's not the closest to the lake but it was a short walk. The downside was the huge, falling pine cones. No one got hit but there were a few near-misses and I was worried about my kids. Every now and then you'd hear one hit a camper, ka-BOOM! I told them to play close to the trunk of the tree because that seemed to be the safest. I will go back but I'll make them keep their bike helmets on. Kel.

We have stayed at Camp Edison and driven through in the summertime to scout it out.

Here is our 2 cents....might be all it is worth. Camp Edison is a large campground and not one I'd let my children run around without adult supervision at ALL times. Not out of my sight. (Not that kids should run wild without any supervision.) For us it is too crowded and like a contested city.
But if you want to be close to the lake (Shaver) then you have no other choice.

If you are looking for quiet nights and days, hiking trails, a boat to rent on a lake that has a 15mph speed limit, check out Wishon Village. Just one hour from Shaver Lake and full hook ups too! A great place for children and grand children. And you can call for a reservation

Here is our campground review

Huntington is a nice location and there are hookups, maybe not full hookups, at Sierra Summit. We have never stayed there but we do have friends that go there every summer. Lot's to explore in this area.

We live out in our old van. Travel all across this land. Drive until the city lights dissolve into a country sky, me and you - hand in hand.
