I've been there dozens of times since the ''60's. I've never heard of a lake anywhere near walking distance. I'd love to know if there truly is. Not visible from any maps I've looked at. Any info would be appreciated... Says Mike

Wild Plum is an excellent place to camp for all ages. Most camp spots are right next to a beautiful rushing river and there is a small lake and waterfall (seasonal) within a 10 minute walk across the river. The lake is deep enough for cliff jumping!! Bathrooms are available, though they are like most campground bathrooms (non flushing).
 
    Black Bears come around now and again, but they're really no problem at all. Beautiful hiking! I love this place Says Sasha

Experience the fresh air in California at its finest at a primitive campground like Wild Plum Campground.

While visiting this area in California it's a wonderful idea to go for a weekend of camping too. Getting to this primitive campground could be quite demanding, but it's well worth it. The great local attractions and the great variety of outdoors
