A National Park Campground in the North Sierras region.
Number of visits: 2
Bathroom: pit • Water: yes
Lovely spot at 7,000'-ish on the south side of a little alpine lake. On the north side is Summit Lake North Campground which costs $2/night more. It has flush toilets and sinks with running water.
It has the shambling, kinda charming disorganization I associate with National Park campgrounds.
Sites are not very level, but there's a lake to swim in and you're in an awesome place!
If there is a level parking pad in this campground I have not found it.
Some are just LOL, but most look level-ish, but in fact you get in there and ... not level.
Still a cool place though.
Off season, which means no water and price reduction.
North Summit is already closed, so South Summit is unusually crowded.
Don't know why I went for South Summit.
I learned later North Summit is well worth the extra $2 (or $1 for seniors :).
