Welcome to Camp Edison

We built Camp Edison in 1963 in a pine forest on the western shores of Shaver Lake, California. It’s been a favorite vacation spot ever since. Our 252 campsites are available to the public and they include electricity. WiFi is also available at an additional cost. We’re open year-round.

Camp Edison has been removing insect infested trees in order to maintain public safety & forest health. Some sites have more sun exposure than currently described in site details.

Reserve Your Campsite Online – or by Email or U.S. Mail

What to See & Do

From hiking and horseback riding to fishing and watersports, there’s plenty to do in the Camp Edison area.


Protect Our Forests: Leave Your Firewood at Home

When you visit Camp Edison, be sure to leave your firewood at home, and either collect or buy firewood here in Shaver Lake. Tree-killing insects and diseases can lurk in firewood and cause new infestations that can have devastating effects to our forests, agriculture, and communities. Beginning January 1, 2015, only locally sourced wood will be allowed into Camp Edison.
