    How do I make reservations. Are you busy this time of year?

    • Hi Tom,
      Thanks for asking. We have a ‘Make A Reservation’ button on the Deer Creek campground page. You can click on the button to check availability and make reservations. The summer is generally a busy time (especially on weekends) at Deer Creek and other Huntington Lake campgrounds.

  2. Hi. I am trying to choose between any of the campgrounds surrounding Huntington Lake. Do ANY of the campgrounds have pay-showers available?

    • Hi Shon,
      There are no showers available at any of the Huntington Lake campgrounds.

    • Salvador says:

      Hello! Is the campground currently closed due to Covid? I have a reservation for Memorial weekend!

      • Hi Salvador,
        Deer Creek campground at Huntington Lake is currently closed. However, we are hearing (finger’s crossed) that it, and other USFS campgrounds in California should be opening up later in May. The USFS current order for the Pacific Southwest Region is that closures will remain in effect through May 15, 2020. This means the campground map open soon after that, or they could always extend the order.

  3. Patricia says:

    Are you still closed? received an email for a cancelled day 18th-19th depatrure of this month. But, not for 14th-18th departure. Please clarify.
    Thank you

    • Hi Patricia,
      Deer Creek campground at Huntington Lake is still closed due to Covid-19 restrictions. However, according to the US Forest Service it is tentatively scheduled to reopen June 19th.

  4. Kyle James Beaird says:

    Howdy,

    I recently received an email stating that the Deer Creek campground will be closed from June 19th to June 25th. Two questions:
    1. Does this closure only apply to Deer Creek, or will it affect all camping areas on Huntington Lake?
    2. What is the reason for this closure? There have been zero “forest orders” posted in regard to any date after the 19th, so I am confused as to what the reasoning is for this closure.

    Thank you for your time.
