PLEASE use ‘Wildlife Awareness’ - Bears, cougars, rattlesnakes and other animals have been seen and can inhabit the area. Remember the campground is in a remote forest area and this is their home as well. There have been no known issues reported, BUT your awareness of your surroundings in the forest is all too important.

This website is dedicated to my late wife, who was also my best friend and always encouraged me to keep this website going so folks would know what is going on at Finnon. She lost her battles with cancer in November of 2015. She was a fighter and fought for nearly two years always hoping for the best. Through it all she kept her head up high, kept her humor, and her sense of worth. She will be in my thoughts for the remainder of my time.

The old water tank. Water was pumped from a well to the tank, then gravity would have the piped water flow back to the campground.
Now it is a ‘tee’ area for the disc golf course.
Play a round to find the tank.

At one time there was a very nice write up of Finnon Lake on the National Geographic’s Sierra Nevada Geotourism site. Sadly it is no longer available as a board member that represented the organization that owns the property complained that the write up contained links to Finnonlake.com, this was done in 2012. That person neglected to state that there were also links to that organization’s site as well. National Geographic had the article removed at the behest of that board member, although the groups entire board knew of the article and approved it in 2010. One would think that any “publicity” would be welcome to help promote the lake, guess some folks can’t accept that. By the way it has been three years now and that organization has yet to submit their own article to Nat Geo; why?
