“Smaller, quiet campground in a great location”

Reviewed Jun 14, 2016

Overall Rating

We only stayed here one night, but found it to be very centrally located for exploring the Carson Pass/Hope Valley area; it is also relatively close to South Lake Tahoe (roughly a 20 min drive).

The campground is small (I believe there were only 22 sites), with nicely paved parking pads which were quite long, so they could accommodate slightly longer trailers. Our 16' travel trailer and our pickup fit the parking pad with room to spare. Each site had a newer picnic table, bear storage locker, and campfire pit. The campground host was very friendly.

The only real drawback we noticed were there were quite a few mosquitoes, due to some standing water near the south east end of the campground. This could just be from snow melt, so maybe it wouldn't be an issue later in the season.

The campground is located directly across from the West Fork of the Carson River; apparently there is pretty good fishing in this river if that's something you're interested in. The scenery in this little valley was STUNNING; would definitely recommend this campground to anyone looking for a quieter, smaller place to stay.
