Big summer crowds are thinning out at Lake Hemet … meaning some of our prime lake front campsites are still available on August weekends …with the sole exception of Labor Day weekend which is currently sold out.
Lake levels have dropped slightly, but many lakefront camp sites are still close enough to the water to fish right from your campsite.
Fishing not your thing?
Bikes are always a great way to get around at Lake Hemet and close by are a few epic mountain bike trails. Hurkey Creek loop, “The Hub” in Idyllwild are both great trail areas for the more serious mountain bike riders.
For more casual mountain bike riders there are flat, easy to ride forest service roads at nearby Quinn Flats (accessed by Fobes Saddle Road) 3 miles south of the Lake Hemet on highway 74.
Summer fun at Lake Hemet continues well into the months of September and October with warm days, cool crisp nights and fishing for both bass and trout picking up with the shorter days.
If you are booking online, use a laptop or desktop to get full access to our “campsite selection” feature to select your specific site.
