    Whiskeytown Lake Campgrounds

  • Whiskey Creek Group Campground

  • Oak Bottom Campground

  • Brandy Creek Campground

  • whiskeytown Camping in this area seems to be quite abundant. Dirt Roads, to the South of the Lake, cross the dam, and lead way up into a few primitive spots. The best drive in campsites for the rugged type vehicles. Even though the primitive spots aren't next to the Lake, you will be greeted with the big rushing creek climbing down this steep canyon.

    A large RV camp is also situated on the South shore along with OakBottom Campground at the North end. (see below)

    Oak Bottom Campground has walk-in campsites, some right down to waters edge. Park in a number of paved common parking lots. Bring your little wagon and wheeled cooler. Steel bear boxes are provided at this camp for food items. A few camp spots are a bit of a distance from parking areas and the lake area has some hills. Motorhomes have a decent level area to park, and camp. Bare minimum facilities. Bathrooms, boat ramp. Popular with kayakers, mountain bikers and hikers.
