At the Bowman Lake Dam, the road continues along the north shore but becomes a primitive road not recommended for low-clearance vehicles. If you want to access the area above Bowman Lake with small trailers/RVs or low-clearance vehicles, roads from the east via Jackson Meadow Reservoir are somewhat better but still remote (see East Slope and Grouse Ridge Maps). To get to Jackson Meadows Reservoir, from Truckee, take Highway 89 north for 17 miles. Turn right (west) off Highway 89 at Little Donner Summit. Follow Jackson Lake Road (Forest Road 07) for 16 miles. The road to Faucherie Lake continues southeast from Jackson Creek Campground, but is not recommended for low clearance vehicles. Drive 3.7 miles south on rough road from Jackson Creek Campground. Fording the creek above the campground is not advisable for anyone during high water.

I’ve been out to this campground on countless years with my family from when I was a young child to now, i think only once or twice did we have to share the grounds with another group! the road in is treacherous and four wheeled vehicles are heavily suggested. There’s is a pristine lake great to paddle out on and great trails to hike out to pools or waterfalls. I believe you need a reservation for the actual site but there’s always areas for thru hiking! Highly recommend if you like camping in lots but still have your own privacy
