Camp Edison at Shaver Lake staying open along with both marinas at the lake.

Camp Edison is a private campground operated by Southern California Edison. Forestry Campgrounds are closing. Going to Camp Edison next week and received an email from them confirming this.

The Drought is bad here but the timing of the closures is bad too as I'm sure all the campgrounds were booked in advance.

Hey look, a crosstown rival. (I grew up down the road in LCF.)

I've only camped at Shaver once, but it was pretty dramatic even when conditions were good. Didn't a bunch of people get stuck up there during the fires last summer? I don't think I'd want to be there right now.

By contrast, we were there two summers ago for the Fourth of July when so many of the trails were closed because there was still too much snow. We had a blast roosting each other in the snow on the open trails. We also cleared all the trees we could clear ourselves to open up more trails. It was quite a week.

And how about that story from a week or so ago where the woman accidentally put her RZR in gear and drove off Baldy? That's the stuff of nightmares.

Good luck this weekend, and stay safe!

Arizona had closed all forests in July due to fires. This included 4th of July weekend. They had nearly all roads into the forests blocked with forest service, police and others stationed at the road entrances. Even the small dirt forest service roads had someone stationed there to block. Could get thru only if you could prove you lived there. Private campgrounds were opened but nearly all had a no open flame policy. AZ has had quite a bit of monsoon rains lately so they lifted the bans in most areas. Hope CA gets some rain as well.

The people trapped last year were at Mammoth Pool reservoir during the creek fire which started north of Shaver Lake along "big creek" road.They only had one way out and were cut off by the fire. The tree mortality problem due to bark beetles the last several years really made that fire bad up to about the 7000 foot elevation.

Camp Edison is just up the road from Shaver Lake town on Highway 168. Been going there since the seventies nearly every year. That is a gem of a campground with power to every site and marina access to the lake. Like everything the prices keep going up, but it sure beats the lack of amenities at many of our state campgrounds. Just looking at the picnic tables at some our state campgrounds gets my blood boilin!

Funny thing about the latest closures: Went to Castaic lake yesterday boating and fishing which was open but Pyramid Lake just up the 5 is closed because its in Forestry land though the fire danger would be equal. Kinda hard to start a brush fire on the lake. Feel sorry for all the families canceling their trips this weekend.
