“Quiet spot out of the Tahoe hustle, small and tight”
NOTE: We googled in, and it directed via an aggressive off-road route, we arrived to see a Prius and realized there was a totally paved road in. I can't remember if we had service, but download offline maps or check Gaia. I believe we took a left onto the rough road, and if we'd stayed on pavement we'd have gotten there faster.
Small lake, tight spots all on a slope facing the water. It was Memorial Day weekend and we were able to get a spot on the water. People were all friendly, you would have a hard time avoiding conversation here :) Lots of day use folks with kayaks and through hikers. It was beautiful and a great place to spend a night. The frogs were chirping til late, wasn't buggy - wished we'd had a kayak or something, we would have stayed longer to enjoy.
