“Beautiful and secluded”

Overall Rating

Beautiful and quiet campground! Nestled in Tahoe National Forest, I’ve never seen more than half the campsites used at once. Most of the campsites are really shaded and large, several restrooms available, and the reservoir is right there for swimming and fishing (though we’ve been 3+ times and never caught a fish here). Only thing to be aware of is there is no cell service and you are in active bear territory so you need to make sure you lock up your food/personal items in the provided bear boxes.
