Three dozen campgrounds, plus thousands of acres of dispersed camping, makes Alpine County a favorite with campers. A range of facilities are available, from primitive sites along a rushing stream to lakeside campgrounds with swimming, fishing, and boating.
With elevations ranging from 5,000 to 8,000 feet, campgrounds are clustered around Lake Alpine and the Highway 4 Corridor on the west, and at Caples Lake, Hope Valley and Markleeville on the east.
Undeveloped, or dispersed, sites are found in a variety of locations around Alpine County. Popular spots include Centerville Flats, Wolf Creek Meadows, Pacific Valley, and a variety of locations in Hope, Faith & Charity Valleys.
