We stayed in the Campground close to Florence lake. Fishing is great in the creek. The hikes are perfect. We went to crater lake and enjoyed the three to four hours hike up the trail. We also took the ferry to other side of the lake and went to John Mure Ranch for site visit. Everything was perfect. It is... More

The place is beautiful. The only thing that I was bummed about was the map of the campground that we used to book our reservation was not layed out right. We thought our campsite was on the river but it was on a dried up creek instead. I did take a photo of the actual campground layout for others so... More

Family and friends went to Florence Lake for five nights. We all had a wonderful time. Weather was perfect. 70's day/low 40's night. Campground was well managed with fairly clean facilities. Lets be clear. The campground is rather Spartan and not for the novice camper. The drive in on Kaiser pass single lane road is very challenging and can make... More

We camped at jackass meadows which is at Florence lake.. Once we turned on kaiser pass rd it took us about 2 hrs on a one lane road.. There are areas where you can pull to the side so another car can pass but you are on the edge of the cliff and its scary!! We were very secluded on... More

"Kaiser Pass," the road you'l come in on is an adventure unto itself. You probably won't need 4 wheel drive but it wouldn't hurt to have. The road is not well maintained and in places, gets a bit rough. Large vehicles will have a tough time squeezing past oncoming traffic. There isn't much but be prepared to back up to... More

The road up the Kaiser Pass to get to Jacka55 Meadows (TripAdvisor considers the name of the campground as profanity so I used 5 instead of s) and Florence Lake is a bit scary, but it's worth it. The campground is shaded and some of the campsites are right on the San Joaquin River. The fishing was good as was... More
