Had a great time here - terrific proximity to lake & decent sized camping sites. Nearby Portola, & easy drive from the Reno area.
Lots of generators in use during the day (the only reason I can’t give it 5 stars, since we were tent camping) , but all seemed to abide by hours posted for operation.
Already have reservations for this summer!
So beautiful! The lake is nestled in the mountains. The scenery, fishing and water sports are superb! There are ample campgrounds with spots from tent camping to RV camping. They also have group camping right on the water! If you love mountain lakes, don’t miss this one… and book early!
This campground is beautiful. I’m bummed about the new management company charging $30 a night. It’s not worth $30 a night for pit toilets. There were campground hosts roaming around but they didn’t seem to be enforcing rules, like only parking on the pavement and the noise curfew. Antelope Lake is always gorgeous though and worth the trip.
Great campground with hook ups for our travel trailer. Spaces are pretty close together and small, but we got lucky and didn’t have anyone around us (likely due to bad air quality). If you kayak this is a great place to camp, it’s right next to the lake. Portable toilets were kept pretty clean. They do have showers. Located right outside the town of Chester.
It was packed over Labor Day weekend, but the spots are spread out enough. Get a spot closer to the water since there is more shade and the river can drown out some of the noise of the highway. I don't recall any showers, and the bathrooms are pretty basic pit toilets. You're just down the street from groceries and Truckee though.
Be sure to bring tubes or something to float down the river! The water was cool and the best way to beat the heat.
Clean and quite. The sites are spread out and offer a lot of privacy. Full hookups $35, water and electric $30. Dry camp $20. On the south shore of Eagle Lake. No fires or Charcoal at this time. Would come back again. Stayed 3 nights.
Really neat sites run next to the Truckee River. The sites are clean and well kept. Bathrooms do not have sinks, showers or any running water, only port-a-potties. We went in October 2020 and the early mornings can be quite cold. The temp dropped down into the 30’s between 4-9am, so be prepared, however it warms up quite quick, by 11am it was around 70 degrees. The traffic off the freeway is pretty loud, but the river drowns it out.
The site volunteer manager “Steve” was not very friendly, so be sure to check for updated information on the message board when you arrive, because he will call the rangers on you.
This state park has enough sites that are spread apart enough to give some distance. Not all of them but enough if you choose wisely. We also loved the fact that there was a creek that goes through the area with a nicely maintained path and foot bridges alongside. Conveniently located a few minutes from Truckee which has everything you would need from gas, restaurants, hardware store and even a DMV. The lake itself is also a nice touch to be able to swim or fish.
