  1. I love your photos and information about the Willow Campground. It looks like a beautiful and peaceful place to camp. I like that it’s primitive and first-come, first-serve, which gives it a more natural and authentic feel. The aspen trees and the creek are so lovely. I’m curious about the fishing opportunities there.

    • Thank you Supraja,
      The South Fork of Bishop Creek near Willow Campground usually has some great fishing. You’ll catch mostly Brown Trout, which number about 1400 fish per mile and average about 8 inches.
