Group Campground Closures

With the exception of Kidd Lake and Bear Valley Group camps, all group camps are currently closed and will remain closed for the 2021 season, due to COVID-19.  Kidd Lake and Bear Valley Group Camps are available for reservations for stays between July 2nd through the Reservation Season Close date.

Family camps are now fully open, including a larger percentage of reservations, but still with plenty of first come first serve sites. Campers will be able to make reservations for stays through the Reservation Season Close date, usually after Labor Day weekend.

Critically dry conditions may affect reservoirs and recreation facilities

California is in its third driest year on record, with the critically dry conditions affecting lakes and reservoirs throughout the state. Please be aware that this will likely impact the PG&E recreation facilities.  Lower lake and reservoir levels can expose previously unseen hazards and therefore requires more caution when recreating and may necessitate the closure of some facilities.  To learn more about river and lake levels, please visit the California Department of Water Resources website, and check back at pge.com/recreation for updates on PG&E recreation facilities.

2022 Campsite Fee Changes

PG&E has not increased fees for most of its managed campsites in over 10 years. To continue to provide clean and well-maintained facilities and customer-based services, PG&E will be increasing its campsite fees in 2022. The increases are based on market assessment of similar types of federal, state, and private campsites located within California.

2022 campsite fees can be found by clicking the Opening & Closing Dates AND FEE SCHEDULE button in the upper right corner of this page.   Fee changes are only occurring at developed recreation sites and not at primitive/dispersed camping areas campsites where operation and maintenance fees are not collected. 

Updated information regarding dates and fee can be reviewed by clicking the "Opening & Closing Dates" link in the upper right corner of this page. 

Please continue to check our website for updated information.
