Vacation With the Family or Friends at Florence Lake

Welcome to Florence Lake in the heart of the Sierra Nevada
Nestled in the John Muir Wilderness, this is one of the jewels of the Sierra. Isolated, quiet, peaceful, it offers relief from your soul-jarring urban existence. Come join us here at the end of the road.

Typical season June 15th to Sept 15th depending on snow conditions, lake levels, and staffing. Limited services before July 1st and after Labor Day.

You’ll not be stuck in the boonies when you come to Florence Lake. There are facilities and services available that include campgrounds,, picnic area, store, boat rentals, and passenger ferry services to places around the lake, and the main connection to the mid-point of the John Muir Trail, the most popular hiking trail in the United States. Check us out. You’ll be glad you did!

Please note that the campgrounds around Florence Lake are open for campers once Kaiser Pass Road opens for the season. Spaces are available on a first come first serve basis with limited services (camp host, water etc.) until early June when the reservation system kicks in and camp hosts arrive. If you need water you can come to the store here at Florence Lake. To make campsite reservations please call Reserve USA at (877) 444-6777 or go to Reserve USA.

The Florence Lake Ferry Service and Store are available for sale. Click Here for more information concerning this matter. Keep in mind this is a seasonal operation.
