Nearly all of my best friends from high school and their families spent a very fun weekend hanging out and exploring the surroundings of the Fallen Leaf Lake Campground. This fourth installment of Campapalooza did not disappoint!
The highlight of the trip was, of course, a massive bear that we spotted walking back to camp from the Taylor Creek Visitor Center. It had to be be well over 300lbs and was handsomely colored. It was rivaled by the one-winged bald eagle we saw at the visitor center!
Fallen Leaf Campground was quite amazing. Bathrooms, showers, potable water and peace and quiet at night, even with a few bears passing by our tent here and there. The gradients of the road were also perfect for scootering. The campground is HUGE and our sites were spread out, something we'll fix next year by registering for sites 6 month in advance.
