At the bottom of Fishlake National Forest, we had a great lunch in the small town of Koosharem, where we got welcomed with the sentence: “How do you like it here, where there is nothing?”
Afterwards we drove to the highest campground on this journey. The last summit sign we crossed was well over 9000ft and we still climbed a little until we reached the place between the aspen trees. The Tasha Equestrian Campground is just a couple of miles from Fishlake with stunning mountain views. Even at the beginning of June the spring has not yet really started here at this place, we had some frost the next morning. The campground itself has about a dozen sites with water and two horse corrals each. We didn’t got to ride here since we wanted to go fast to our next adventure.
$10 per night for the site including the corrals.
