    • Hi Elaine,
      You’ll need to contact ReserveCalifornia as they handle all reservations for Crags and other California State Parks. Their number is 800-444-7275.

  2. Pamela Campbell says:

    Does anyone know if you can reserve sites on the matterhorn loop at Crags Campground? Or is it First Come? Thank you

  3. Erin Denson says:

    Hi, I wanted to ask if I have a reservation for sun July 18th will I be first for first available for following week July 19th-25th? Please contact me to let me know.

    • Hi Erin,
      You should be one of the first in line for first-come, first-serve campsites (starting July 19th), since you have a reserved campsite July 18th. I recommend walking the campground the afternoon/evening of July 18th to see which first-come, first-serve campsites will open on July 19th. Hopefully there will be some that become available for you.

    Hi,
    We know that generally there is a 14 day limit stay. My question is does this hold true for double or triple sites where the second camper or third camper begins their stay after the first camper takes the site. In other words, is the second camper entitled to occupy the double or triple site for 14 days after their arrival if they take over and being paying for the site? If so, would the first camper be able to stay a few more days after they had been there 14 days.

    I know the idea of a 14 day limit is to allow others to have a chance for sites and prevent people homesteading a camp site. But in a double where a camper comes in week after the first camper, that site would occupied and not open to a stranger anyway. Thank you for your time and considering this question/comment.

    • Hi James,
      If a particular campground (like Crags) has a 14-day limit stay per campsite – that 14-day limit is for the original reservation holder. The 14-day limit is valid on any type of campsite (single, double or triple, unless otherwise noted in the campground rules). The original reservation holder can designate another person on the reservation and that person can continue staying at the site should the original reservation holder leave. The campsite must be continuously occupied. If vacated (no people/equipment/vehicles, etc.), the camp host/ranger will (probably) tag it as available and placed back in the reservation pool.

      • James Long says:

        Thank you for your response. I’m primarily referring to Matterhorn Loop, first-come, fist-serve. So for clarification, the original camper pays 10 nights for a double. A second camper joins the first camper after 10 nights. The second camper puts the site in their name and pays for 7 nights. Can the first camper stay in the double through the end of the second camper’s 7 night paid stay?

    • That sounds like it may work, but I recommend calling the campground/ranger’s district office to confirm: 760 932-7092.
      CampsitePhotos is not associated with the campgrounds listed on our site. We provide the photos of each campsite and offer campsite availability alerts. Hope it works out for you!

  6. We will be in Site 13 in the Sawtooth Loop. Does this site have a hook up for water for an RV? If not, is there a place in the Campground where we can fill with water? THANK YOU!

    • Hi Eric,
      Campsite #13 or any of the other sites do not have water hookups. There is potable (drinking) water at the campground, but not sure if you are allowed to fill up your RV/trailer water tank.
