John Muir Trail: Camping at Lake Virginia

Description

Added by Kristen Bor

This campsite is located at mile 72 of the John Muir Trail.

You'll find an ample supply of warm, sunny campsites here. After a tough climb leading up to this area, a plunge in the cold water and sunbathing on the warm granite surrounding the lake is just what the doctor ordered. This is one of the sites that you want to plan around - even if you arrive at a non-ideal stopping point on your trip, it's worth it to fudge you itinerary slightly and soak this beautiful lake in.

Reviews

I caught my biggest fish on the John Muir Trail at this lake. Huge Goldens! I caught about 8 that were 16 plus inches, and lost one that was about 20 inches. The scenery wasn't bad either.
