Summit Lake is a classic campground split into two parts on either side of Summit Lake. 

The Park Service generally maintains it well.  The campsites are fairly small, but it is not as cramped as Manzanita Lake.

Excellent hikes start at the campground trailheads. 

Tends to have more mosquitos than the other campgrounds in the Park, mostly in July.
