Overview

Rock Creek Campground sits on a large, sandy flat under a grove of oak, pine and cedar trees. The sites are divided into three sections, with Rock Creek running through the middle. One section of the camp sits nearest the access road; the other two sections can be reached via a bridge over Rock Creek. On this side, the largest section is located in closest to the swimming holes and rock water slide in the area.

Recreation

Swimming holes can be found along the creek, and the campground's proximity to Mammoth Pool Reservoir provides even more recreational activities, including fishing, boating and hiking.

Facilities

Each campsite has a picnic table and campfire ring with grill. Parking spurs are paved and dirt-surfaced. Vault toilets and drinking water are provided. Supplies can be purchased at Wagner's Mammoth Pool Resort.
