OverviewMiddle Meadows Campground offers a quiet place to camp, far from the hustle and bustle of city life. The campground is isolated from other campgrounds and offers a variety of recreational activities in its vicinity. Its scenic location also provides for beautiful sightseeing, birding and wildlife viewing.
Middle Meadows is located in a quiet, grassy meadow with a heavily wooded surrounding. Forests include large cedar, pine and fir trees, with a mixed grass and fern understory. Although the campground has a primitive, undiscovered feel to it, the serene mountain landscape is well worth the long drive from civilization.
Campers at Middle Meadows enjoy the large, open grove for sports, games and other activities, making it an ideal spot for family trips.
The campground offers two walk-in group campsites. The sites can accommodate up to 25 and 50 guests respectively. Each site is equipped with tables, campfire circles and grills. Vault and flush toilets, as well as drinking water, are provided.
Middle Meadows is located adjacent to Long Canyon Creek for fishing and wading. Hell Hole Reservoir is a short drive north. Boat ramps are available at the reservoir.
