About Forbes Campground
Forbes Creek Group Campground is located on the southeast shore of Sugar Pine Reservoir in the Tahoe National Forest. Visitors enjoy the area for its fishing, canoeing and hiking opportunities. Natural Features: The 160-acre Sugar Pine Reservoir sits at an elevation of 3,600 feet. A forest of cedar and ponderosa pine covers the campground, which overlooks the reservoir. Summertime temperatures are warm during the day and cool at night. Recreation: Fishing, canoeing, swimming and boating are popular activities on the reservoir. A trail system for walking and non-motorized biking connects the two group sites at the campground, to the lake and nearby boat ramp. The North Fork of the American River is nearby, offering opportunities for additional fishing and swimming. Many miles of hiking, biking and off-road vehicle trails are in the surrounding area. Facilities: The campground offers two group campsites, Madrone and Rocky Ridge. Each site can accommodate up to 50 people and 18 vehicles. Both sites are equipped with a central cooking and picnic area, with a large campfire circle and multiple tables. RVs, trailers and tents are allowed within the campground. An unloading area and accessible parking are available within the campground. ACTIVITIES Biking Boating: Canoeing Fishing Hiking Swimming Site
