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 :).
