Shirttail Campground

30 sites located near a little creek that feeds Sugar Pine Reservoir.

Gorgeous scenery, calm, and relaxing. Swim in the lake or hike on the trail that surrounds it. Set up camp right on a picturesque creek and fall asleep to the sound of running water. Wake up early and take a walk in the brisk morning air to the reservoir where you can swim out to a small island.
