Silver Creek Campground Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"Camping at Silver Creek Campground is like sleeping on the shoulder of a huge beast: the Sierra Nevada, which is a huge hunk of granite thrust from the earth. It is tilted so the western slope is gradual, while the east side rises almost straight up. Silver Creek Campground hangs on like a flea just below the 8,730-foot Ebbetts Pass.

The campground is on a piece of land like the prow of a ship, with the Ebbetts Pass Road running down the center. The north side of the campground has Silver Creek on its flank, the south side Noble Creek. The campsites are well engineered and clean—scoured by the winter and the dry desert air from below."
