Bretz Mill Campground is located on scenic Big Creek in Sierra National Forest, with access to Shaver Lake.

Bretz Mill Campground is truly one of a kind - no fee, open year round, first come, first serve. This is a wonderful campground is an oasis for those seeking to picnic, cool off during hot summer days, or explore snowy trails. This is also a great place to spend the night when many campgrounds at higher elevations are hidden under feet of snow in the winter. 

The maximum group size is 6 people per site. Each site is equipped with grills and fire rings. There are bathrooms at the campground.
