Sierra Forest Road #11S12 - Paved road access up (from Pine Flat Reservoir) makes this one an easy drive, but don't mind the one lane wooden bridges. Overall, narrow single lane paved road from south side. Dirt Roads access this area from the north (Wishon Reservoir) & nice waterfall view on the way down. This partially paved back road is not for the timid drivers. The lake is a totally bitchin, mid Sierra location for a true weekend away - way away. Best camping months May-October. Sierra storms hit this 4000' elevation lake - mostly in winter months. Seclusion & fishing are the big draw here.

Blackrock Campground is a small & way outta the way. RVs are not allowed back here, due to steep winding, one lane road - along deadly granite cliff. No reservations. Campground on a first come basis. 10 campsites. Vault toilet, picnic tables and campfire rings. Pine forest, oaks, waterfalls, granite cliffs and best, the dirt roads that lead higher into the Sierra Nevada. Dinkey, Wishon, Courtright - to name a few.
This particular small lake campground is a long drive no matter which way you come from. Driving the curvy, one lane, shoreline of Pine Flat Reservoir seems to take hours.
Blackrock California, this place would be a fisherman's dream spot - with access to the main Kings River & Pine Flat Reservoir below, this ideal mid point called Black Rock, plus the upper creeks, stream and lakes further up the mountain. You'll need a good forest road map to explore past this point too. Plenty primitive camping all along these dirt roads, way back up in this canyon of the North Fork of the Kings River. Sawmill Flat Campground is further up Black Rock Road (forest road #11S12).
