Brightman Flat Campground is nestled on the Stanislaus River, hidden in a conifer forest - a great place to breathe some fresh air and catch a break from the hustle and bustle of urban life.

Each campsite comes equipped with a picnic table and a fire ring. The campground has vault toilets. Bring enough water for cooking and drinking, as potable water is not available. This campground operates on a first-come, first-serve basis. The fee is $15 for a single family site (6 people max), and the campground takes cash only. Nearby Pinecrest and Sonora are great locations to stock up on supplies or grab a quick bite to eat while on the road. 

If you wish to use a stove, grill, or make a campfire, it is recommended to obtain a campfire permit. The permit is free, and more information can be found here. 

Brightman Flat Campground is typically open from May - October.
