Summit Lake Campground is located 12 miles south of Manzanita Lake and 17.5 miles north of the Southwest Entrance. The campground contains a north section and a south section. Both have access to Summit Lake and are connected via a short trail along the east shore. Swimming is generally better from the north shore; the south shore is more grassy. South Summit Lake Campground cannot accommodate RVs or trailers (except small tent trailers). Flush toilets are only available North Summit Lake when drinking water is available. Once water is turned off for the season only pit toilets are available in both sections.
The corral is located across the park highway from the North Summit Lake Campground. The facility has two metal stock corrals with water troughs and water is furnished for the horses. There is no potable water so campers must bring their own water or go into the Summit Lake Campground to obtain drinking water. There are two campsites with tables, fire rings and bear lockers available. There is a vault toilet available near the site for the corral users. There is a limit of 8 animals, 10 people, and 6 licensed vehicles. Make a reservation for the Summit Lake Stock Corral or learn more about stock corrals in the park.
