Unbelievable privacy in the Eastern Sierra!

This campground earns 4 stars because of its amazing privacy. First, it's quite an adventurous (read: bumpy) drive to get to it from the nearest paved road. Once you arrive, you'll be amazed at how much space there is between the sites. From most sites, you can scarcely see that there are other campsites around! Yet there are still vault toilets.

Lookout is oddly named; it's tucked deeply enough into the forest that it doesn't have much in the way of a view (though in fall, the numerous aspen are undoubtedly stunning).

This campground is dog friendly, with no one to enforce leash rules (if there are any). Since the separation between sites is so large, this doesn't seem to be much of an issue. Down off the mountain, both human and pooch alike can splash around in the Truckee River to cool off. There's excellent swimming right by the bridge.

  • Really nice support stands for your propane stove!
  • Large pads accommodate even my insanely large tent.
  • The nearby Truckee River offers refreshing swims!
  • Some of the scenery leaving this section of the Forest.
  • Pups and humans both can enjoy the nearby Truckee River.
