It’s that time of year for a last good camping trip before the weather turns truly chilly! And what better way to camp than at an area only accessible by boating or hiking?

I mean, fewer people, time on the water, lovely yellow and red trees…ah, sounds like heaven to me=)

Upper Priest Lake happens to be the perfect combination of all of the above and you have several options to choose from. Here’s the run down:

Geisingers Campground: This one offers two campsites at the mouth of Upper Priest Lake where it empties into the Thorofare, right on the east shore. During the summer, it apparently has heavy close-in boat traffic, but during this season, the traffic shouldn’t be so crazy.

Plowboy Campground: Plowboy has four campsites on the southwest shore.

Trapper Creek Campground: If the others are full, Trapper Creek has five campsites on the northeast shore for you to choose from.

And if that’s not enough you have:

Navigation Campground: With four campsites on the northwest shore.

Just a heads up, none of these campgrounds have drinking water available, so make sure to either bring in your own water or bring a way to purify water. However, they do have vault toilets and fire rings. Just be sure to clean the place up for the next person.

Here’s the good stuff, these all have beach area and are fee free on a first-come-first-served basis. So get out there and enjoy while the beautiful weather lasts!
