Fork Campground is hard to miss. Located at the intersection between US-168 and South Lake Road, the campground's location is an ideal base of operations for adventures in the area. Better yet, the confluence of the Middle and South Fork Bishop Creek can be found right outside the campground.

Because of its easy access, the campground tends to be very busy. Keep in mind that it is located in bear country, and bear activity in the area is high. Be sure to properly store food items in campground storage lockers. Many of the campsites lack shade, but some of the sites are shaded by aspen and pine. There are also some sites located near Middle Fork Bishop Creek on the east side of the campground.
