Designated Campsites Brochure


Blue Lake is the largest Lake in Indian Heaven. Gifford Peak towers over the lake. Due to this lake's popularity the camping is restricted. Camping closer than 250 feet of Blue Lake and nearby Lake Sahalee Tyee is permitted in designated spots only. Click on brochure image for a campsite map with coordinates.

The Pacific Crest-Thomas Lake Trail Junction and the Pacific Crest-Tombstone Lake Trail Junction are both on the east side of Blue Lake.
