    Meacham Lake is very beautiful and remote. We recently camped in Meacham Lake West, which is a more primitive, tent only camping area a mile or so removed from the regular campground. In that part of the campground, each site on the water has its own outhouse. You have to park and then walk your gear to your campsite. Some of the sites have very short walks, while others are a bit longer. It was worth the effort. We were rewarded with a beautiful site right at the water's edge. There were a lot of trees providing privacy between sites as well. Our site had a level spot for our large tent. Two smaller tents would have fit also, but I don't know where you would have put two large tents. I loved the round fire pits with adjustable grates. It was much easier to cook on than the fireplace shaped fire pits that we used in other campgrounds. We were on site 175. On the Reserve America site, it looks like it is right next to the boat launch. Don't worry, the boat launch is a mile or more away. The site is very private and the view of the lake, with mountains is lovely. Sites 176 and 177 are similar and not too close. They all have a sandy "beach" which could easily launch a kayak. Other sites that we looked at had tent platforms. I don't think that our 10 by 14 tent would have fit on them, as they looked to be about 12 by 12. Also, you would need some extra cords to stake your tent all the way to the ground. Many of the sites were high up off the Lake, although you could get down to the water level if you are careful. Sites 182, 183 and 184 had a shorter walk than ours did. They were on a hill, so it was a steep climb down to the water. They were covered in pine needles, which was nicer than our muddy (in places) site. For showers, a very large beach and a small playground, you just drive over to the regular campground. There is plenty of camping there for campers, as well as tents. We liked the more remote Meacham Lake West, but if the amenities are important to you, or you have a camper, then the regular campground is nice too. We heard loons calling every evening and morning. We were also delighted that there was no problems with bears. We were actually able to have our cooler right at our site!
