Camp Wishon

General Info

Camp Wishon Cove, on the southern shore of Bass Lake in the Sierra National Forest, is PSEA’s largest and southernmost camp and the only one that has RV and tent sites in addition to cabins.

At 3500 feet, midsummer days are warm, and most nights are cool.  The lake offers great fishing for bass and other species, and the summer water temperature of 80 degrees is ideal for water activities.  Ski boats, jet skis, kayaks, and SUPs are available for rent nearby.   Wishon Cove is also one of two PSEA camps that are open year-round (the other is Camp Del Monte).  Winter fun includes snow shoeing, star gazing, and in Yosemite National Park, a scenic 45-minutes away, you can enjoy ice skating, a snow park, and skiing at Badger Pass.

Water Sports Advisory

Several water bodies in the southwestern United States, including California, have become infested with the non-native Quagga mussel in recent years. This species is very invasive and, once introduced, can proliferate rapidly. The spread of these mussels is very damaging to the native ecosystem and ultimately causes significant harm to water collection and distribution systems, including power generation facilities. Fortunately, they are not currently known to exist in any PG&E reservoirs. The biggest risk factor for the spread of this species is bringing watercraft or water-related equipment from infested waters. If you are planning to bring a boat or other water-borne equipment to a PSEA facility, find out more about how you can help prevent the spread of this species by going to the Department of Fish and Game website at https://wildlife.ca.gov/Conservation/Invasives/Quagga-Mussels.
