Visiting Camp

Seeing our wilderness location in person will help you relate to your camper’s experience and understand how camp operates. Camp tours are scheduled on the first day of each session. Visitors hike into camp separately from campers, so please say your goodbye’s before starting the tour!

Visiting Camp2024 Visitor Days

Please be prepared to hike in, visit, and hike out, and to bring your own water and snacks.

Dates: Sundays, June 16, June 30, July 14, and July 28, 2024.

Time: 2:00 PM

Meeting Place: Loon Lake Boat Launch Ramp

Reservations: Contact camp’s Central Coast Office to reserve a spot on the tour at least three days in advance to ensure that staff are available.

Guided by one of our staff, you will hike into camp, tour the campground, and hike back out to your car. It is a 2.5-mile, 45–60 minute hike each way. Wear comfortable hiking shoes or boots, long pants, long sleeves, and jacket (Sierra weather can be quite changeable, so this is “just in case”). Bring water (potable water is usually available near the Loon Lake boat launch ramp), snacks, sunscreen, and bug repellent. Remember the elevation at Deer Crossing is nearly 6,500 feet!
