Overview

Honeymoon Flat Campground is located just 8 miles from Bridgeport, California, next to Robinson Creek at an elevation of 7,000 feet. The Twin Lakes area is about 2 miles away, where visitors enjoy boating, fishing, hiking and horseback riding.

Natural Features:

The campground is divided into two loops on either side of Twin Lakes Road. The west loop is partially shaded by Jeffrey and lodgepole pines.

The east loop is much more open, with only a few Jeffrey pines towering over the area. Sagebrush, grasses and summer wildflowers dot the landscape on this loop.

Recreation:

Robinson Creek offers good rainbow trout fishing and can be easily accessed from both loops. Numerous hiking trails are in the vicinity, including the popular Robinson Creek Trail.

Facilities:

The campground contains single and double-family sites equipped with picnic tables, food storage lockers and campfire rings with grills. Vault toilets, drinking water and trash collection are provided. Firewood is available for purchase from the host.

Roads and parking spurs within the loop on the east side of the road are gravel. Most sites on the west loop have paved parking spurs.

Robinson Creek South Campground is nearby, where educational programs are held at its amphitheater on weekends from July 4 through Labor Day.

Nearby Attractions:

Upper and Lower Twin Lakes are nearby, offering beautiful mountain scenery, boating, canoeing and fishing for Kokanee salmon and rainbow and brown trout. The rugged and scenic Hoover Wilderness Area can be accessed from the Twin Lakes area and offers additional trails for hiking and horseback riding.
