Super friendly Rangers greeted us and had us in, in 5 min or so. We booked last minute so we had to hop to 2 different sites. The loop 1-50 is the nicest (we had site 14) if you can book it early enough. We also stayed in site 99 which wasn't bad by any stretch. All sites have no hookups and there is no dump station (Like most CA State Parks). Restrooms were pretty clean and showers need quarters. We have a solar panel and a good battery so we were fine for our water pump, a small fan and charging devices the whole stay. AT&T and Verizon were very usable at both sites. Noise is a mixed bag with some people being clueless about their dogs and kids noise level.

Stopped overnight en route to Eastern NV on I85. Lovely shaded campsites most with space for privacy. A few have enough sun for solar. Plenty of empty sites first come first served here in the end of September. Gas and convenience store at exit. Short hike to scenic Donner Lake. You can hear highway from a distance but quiet inside my trailer. I would come back in warmer weather to explore the lake.
