Overview

Green Creek Group Campground is located about 12 miles from Bridgeport, California, at an elevation of 7,500 feet. Visitors enjoy fishing on Green Creek and hiking the Green Creek Trail.

Natural Features:

The campground is tucked between Green Creek and a rocky outcropping, among a forest of towering Jeffrey pines, which offer partial shade. Aspens, juniper, sagebrush and summer wildflowers dot the landscape.

Recreation:

Green Creek offers rainbow trout fishing and can be easily accessed from within the campground.

Green Creek Trail, for hiking and horseback riding, can be accessed just outside the campground entrance. It leads to Green Lake and further on to East Lake. Rugged peaks surround both large lakes, where hikers are rewarded with good backcountry fishing and spectacular scenery.

Facilities:

This primitive campground contains two group sites that can accommodate 25 and 30 people, with large picnic tables, campfire circles, grills and food storage lockers. Vault toilets, drinking water and trash collection are provided. Roads and parking spurs are dirt.
