“Decent campsite and close to Tahoe”

Reviewed 7/15/2020

Overall Rating

This is a decent campsite and is close to Tahoe. Has a water spigot and vault toilets. Three reasons we will not be coming back here:
1. Although there is reasonable Verizon coverage, during high traffic, LTE slows down to a halt. Since I was working during the day, this was an issue.
2. Lots of road noise.
3. No river access.
