Upper Eagle Review

Great campground, beautiful pines, with very nice camp hosts. Quiet hours start at 8pm which was fine with us. Park rangers are present and will ticket you if not compliant with placing items/trash in bear boxes, warnings given first though. Lower eagle bathrooms are so much nicer than the ones located to in the upper eagle campground, which were dated and shared, only one of two showers worked during our visit. Lower eagle has single stall showers and bathrooms and are newer. Drove down there twice for showers. Price is 1 token for 3 mins and every token is one dollar. Bundles of wood are $10 (cash only). Our specific spot offered morning shade and no shade in the afternoons, so bring a pop-up canopy. We had plenty of space for two small tents and a camper van. Rubicon trail is nearby and we did twice mainly to get down to the water, lots of private small areas to sunbathe and take a dip. Beware lugging your items is no easy feat because walking uphill in the Tahoe sun can be difficult but can be done if needed. Drive to grocery stores takes 15-20 mins, closest is camp rich gen store which is pricier than average but in a bind the come through. Overall good experience!
