About South Fork Group (Ca)

Overview

South Fork is the largest group campground in the Crystal Basin Recreation Area, nestled in the vast expanse of the Eldorado National Forest. The remote location affords visitors a true outdoor camping experience.

Recreation

With the South Fork of the Rubicon River located within walking distance, the group camp provides excellent fishing, swimming and other water sports and activities.

Facilities

While the campground can be used as a single group site that can accommodate up to 125 guests, it can also be reserved as multiple single-family sites.
A group cooking area with food preparation tables and double grills is available, as well as campfire rings with grills at each site. Vault toilets are provided, however, drinking water is not available at the campground. Visitors can boil stream water or fill up at nearby boat ramps. A parking area is also available.

Natural Features

Situated at an elevation of 5,200 feet, the campground sits between the Union Valley Reservoir and Loon Lake.

It is also just minutes away from Gerle Creek Reservoir, a serene mountain lake where motorized boating is prohibited in order to preserve a peaceful and quiet atmosphere for visitors.

Nearby Attractions

Swimming and non-motorized boating are available at Gerle Creek Reservoir, 5 miles north of the campground.
