Lewiston Lake: Camping

Making the trip to Lewiston for a few nights of camping is a truly relaxing experience. Smaller crowds than at Shasta or Trinity mean you’ll be free to enjoy the peaceful outdoors. Because Lewiston is a long drive from any stores, it’s important than you bring everything you’ll need for your camping trip with you.

Glamorous Camping (glamping) is now available at one of California’s most scenic settings, the Mary Smith Campground at Lewiston Lake in Shasta-Trinity National Forest.  This campground has been described by the San Francisco Chronicle and Sunset magazine as “the state’s prettiest.” 

Six glamping tents will be available to rent at the Mary Smith Campground.  Glamping combines creature comforts with tent camping.  Mary Smith Campground’s glamping tents are 168 square feet in size and come outfitted with a queen-sized bed with linens, feather down comforter and pillows, rustic peeled-log furniture (Blue Ridge armchairs, bed frame, boot bench, nightstands and café table), fire pit, picnic table and feature a private deck facing the lake, all for $65/night per campsite.
