“Great QUIET Campground”

Reviewed Oct 11, 2018

Overall Rating

The name has changed to MARTIS CREEK CAMPGROUND as of 2018. Still the same place as before, just a name change. A COE campground. $20/ night or $10 with the America The Beautiful pass. Nice quiet area even though it is next to the Truckee airport. Private planes and a few smaller jets. Hiking around the area and the Martis Dam al... more

“Unexpected & lovely campground”

Reviewed Sep 20, 2018

Overall Rating

We arrived here tired on a Wednesday night and based on another reviewer's recommendation went straight to spot #7. Soooo perfect! Camp spots are large, private, just the right combo of sun/shade, pines and meadows. We're big geocachers and there were a LOT of them within walking distance from our camp. We were a little concerned about... more

“Stunning views and peaceful setting in the Sierras”

Reviewed Sep 25, 2017

Overall Rating

This was our first Army Corp of Engineers stay and we were impressed by the quality of the park and majesty of the setting in the Sierras. We pulled into the park on a Tuesday on our way to South Lake Tahoe and had our choice of most of the camp sites. We found a terrific one (#7) that was a relatively flat pull-through with great ... more

“Quiet Huge Backyard within minutes of Truckee”

Reviewed May 31, 2017

Overall Rating

We loved our time at the Alpine Meadows Campground just outside of Truckee. The campground is a first come first serve campground. We were there a week or two after it opened for the season and it was never full...though it was filling up quite a bit the Friday before Memorial Day. We picked site 9 to have a pull thru, with some shade ... more

“Amazing views just a few minutes from a recreation paradise”

Reviewed Jul 28, 2016

Overall Rating

This is a truly awesome campground. I am not always generous with 5 star reviews but this place truly deserved it. The space, the views, the peace and the world-class hiking just a few miles away. It is a Corps of Engineers Campground and unlike most of the Forest Service campgrounds in this area it is First Come First Served. Which... more
