Upper Hell Hole Walk/Boat-In Campground

15 boat/hike-in campsites, no trailer sites, tables/benches, stoves/barbecues and restrooms.

Normally, Hell Hole Reservoir is incredibly difficult to reach due to the long winding roads and steep shores. Due to this, Upper Hell Hole is the only campsite set along the water. The drive is worth it though, and once you reach the campsite you’ll have easy access to the pristine waters and absolutely gorgeous views.

  • Hours No reservations, the campground is generally open between May 15th and September15th. These dates are affected by snowfall.
