Is there camping close by?

Here is the link to use for booking camp sites in the nearby National Forest campgrounds https://www.recreation.gov/   The interesting thing is that if you go the the Stanislaus NF site and look at the campgrounds they say they are all first come first serve and no reservations.  This is not true. Most have about half the sites that can be reserved ahead of time.  Among them is a link for SILVERTIP CAMPGROUND which has sights than can be reserved.  LAKE ALPINE is all first-come-first-served camp sights.
