Rock Creek Lake campground is located in the eastern Sierra Nevada Mountains and is a great area for fishing, hiking, biking, and horseback riding, with scenic views and wildlife. Visitors have access to the breathtaking John Muir Wilderness nearby, with 100 miles of trails to explore. The campsites are nestled in a low hill with aspen and lodgepole pine trees and offer bear-proof lockers and firewood for a fee.



Rock Creek and other waterways in the eastern Sierra Nevada Mountains are known for exceptional trout fishing. A catch from the lake may include brook, brown, rainbow and stocked Alpers trout, while anglers may be treated to golden trout in the backcountry. Power boats on the lake are limited to electric motors only.

The area's majestic scenery and challenging trails are a draw for hikers, mountain bikers and horseback riders. The Tamarack Trail begins in the campground and wanders up to several high-elevation, glacially-carved alpine lakes and ponds.


The campsites are well-spaced along the lake shore, with several tent-only, walk-in sites overlooking the lake. Boat rentals, educational programs, groceries and showers are all nearby. Firewood is available on-site for a fee. Bears inhabit the area, so bear-proof lockers are provided for campers to store food.
