Spots paved with vault toilets. No dump or hookups but spigots to get water on site. Many spots have access to the river with some nice fly fishing. The campground is right on highway 89 so a bit of road noise.

Parking spots are level but the sites can be a bit sloped. Each space has a fire ring and picnic table.
Pay at the self serve station, so bring cash.

I would recommend for a quick trip or overnight spot.

“Campground too close to highway 89”

Visited campground during the last week of September 2017. The campground itself is laid nicely. The Truckee River flows along the east side of the campground. Fishing is not allowed in the river from campgrounds. Big negative is the road noise from highway 89. Truckee is a short drive and North Lake Tahoe is within 10 miles. Threaded potable water spigots are located through out the campground. There is no dump station. The closest dump station is at the Chevron Gas Station, 12353 Deerfield Dr Truckee, CA 96161 phone (530) 587-6022. It costs $8.88 with fill up, otherwise $10. There are frequent bear sightings at this campground however, we did not see a bear during our stay.
