Description Camp Edison Campground is located on the western shores of the pristine Shaver Lake in the mixed conifer forest of the southern Sierra Nevada at an elevation of 5,400 feet. In 1963 the Southern California Edison Company constructed this beautiful 250 acre campground and picnic area. The objective was to share Shaver Lake’s natural resources and recreational opportunities with the general public. Over the years the campground has grown to 252 campsites. Twenty-five sites are open year round for those seeking a winter adventure in the outdoors. This unique campground offers sites with electricity, free cable television in all sites, and limited high-speed WI-FI internet access. There are day use picnic sites, modern bathrooms, showers, Laundromats, and in the summer a marina, stables, and a general store. There are 3 volleyball courts, basketball court, and 2 horseshoe pits for visitors. There are also large group picnic areas that can be reserved. The picnic area and boat ramp are for our camper’s use as well as day use for the general public (with purchase of a parking permit). In 2003 Camp Edison was featured on the cover of Sunset Magazine in the Best Places to Camp issue.
