Gold Arrow Camp is located in the heart of California’s Sierra National Forest on the shore of Huntington Lake at an altitude of 7,000 feet. Yosemite National Park is 30 miles to the north, and Kings Canyon National Park is 25 miles to the southeast. Gold Arrow Camp is 65 miles northeast of Fresno, California. It takes approximately 1.5 hours to drive from Fresno to the camp.
Staffed charter buses transport campers to and from Gold Arrow Camp with stops in San Francisco, Dublin, Santa Clarita, Los Angeles, Irvine, and Cardiff. Campers also fly to and from Fresno Yosemite Airport and are escorted by camp staff between the airplane and Gold Arrow Camp.
Gold Arrow Camp provides the ideal environment for participation in both wilderness and water activities. The camp operates under a Special Use Permit from the U.S.D.A. Forest Service.
In addition to the main site on Huntington Lake, Gold Arrow Camp also operates an outpost camp on an island in Shaver Lake, about a 20-minute drive away from Huntington Lake. All campers staying two weeks or more will spend 1-2 nights on the island – waterskiing, wakeboarding, and kneeboarding by day and sleeping under a canopy of stars by night.
