Isolation At Last

My girlfriend and I took the kids out in our rigs to find a nice place to camp where we could be in peace from the usual bustle of summer camp traffic. We picked Faucherie as our destination and hit the trails in hopes of finding a spot.

Portions of the trail got a bit rough, but manageable with higher clearance vehicles.

When we arrived, there wasn’t a soup in sight. We wanted to get closer to the lake, but the only camp sites that were available for that were by reservation only and the gate was locked, so we settled on a patch of dirt and rock between some pines on the loop.

We had not planned on freezing temperatures at night so we were limited on blankets at night. We came from 105°F back home to a balmy 55°F day here with frequent winds that increased the chill factor.

During the night, the temperature got down to 30°F. It was rough, but a worthy price to pay for peace and quiet away from summer crowds. The only real perk of the weather conditions meant that we didn’t have much trouble with mosquitos.

We learned that had we arrived a week later, the nights would have been perfect.

Solitude

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

Detail location of campground

Directions

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).<br><br>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.
