This place is small and fairly tight. I stayed in #12 with a small running stream right outside the door. Several folks look like they were camping for a while. The place was close to the road but the noise was not an issue. The grounds were clean and the road gravel. The tricky part is you pay at the boat ramp just down the road not at the camp. My spot had a fresh layer of pine mulch to park on. That made is very aromatic! The little stream probably over flows a little there and this was placed to soak up a muddy place. Old wooden picnic table, which I personally prefer to concrete ones and tired but usable fire ring. The dog appeal was 5 barks! Copper came back muddy and smilin' then laid in the tall cool grass. It was like a doggie day spa. 2 baby ducks were seen in the stream. Overall a great place to stay cheap in the Tahoe area.
