We backpacked up to the high loch levens lake where we found many available campsites. But also a lot of the nice view spots were occupied since we didn’t start our hike up early, we started at 5:30pm. The middle lake is very large and had many beautiful spots to camp. But we headed to the upper…

Small park with RV sites. Many with trees, some without and those get warm during summer months. Manager and park hosts are very friendly.
This campsite has great amenities with restrooms that have a sink and REAL toilets. Very clean. Large secluded site with the forest behind you. Beautiful landscape with a history of hydraulic mining. There’so
a trail to a nearby overlook to see the stripped hillsides. Although I dislike the idea…
Loved being off the grid at this quaint little campground! Lots of water access and hiking trails. Potable water and vault toilets. SUPER quiet at nighttime (thanks to the “no generators running” rule). However, camp host did not enforce the no campfire rule. Of the three nights we stayed, we…
The sites here are super close together so be prepared for that.
The water and electric are at the very back of very looong spaces so you May need an extension, depending on how close you want to be to your neighbor.
When you’re here it’s a great campground. We’re in an okay spot, small and angled funky but still it’s a wonderful place. I love the arcade and ice cream parlor and they sell ice. Everyone is kind and accommodating. The only catch is that your first visit you sit through a 1.5 hour long…
Sites 1-4 are walk in, the rest are drive up. All sites are right on the riverbank. Gold panning is popular here. Quiet campground with the relaxing sound of the river.
It was great besides the bugs and all the wasps

If the first place you think of when you hear “the Sierra Nevada mountains” is Tahoe or Yosemite, I would strongly encourage you to explore points north of Truckee/Tahoe in the Plumas National Forest. And, a great place to stay while exploring the area is Little Bear RV park. This clean, quiet, and…
Poor hookups, no sewer, roads not paved, dusty. Extreme fire hazard with only one way out
The road up was brutal, definitely recommend 4x4. Took us about 40 minutes to get 3 miles on the dirt road that ascends the mountain. The campground itself was CLOSED due to hazardous trees (risk of them falling) so we just drove half a mile past woodchuck and camped in the woods near the road.…
This was a ton of fun both with friends and with my girlfriend (2 different weekends). Easy to find and drive in, lots of availability even during Memorial Day weekend, and there didn't seem to be any bad spots. You can fit 2 cars into most of the parking bays which is nice if you're meeting up…

It is a very nice, little campground. Sites were okay. Not spacious but not too tight either. The lake was warm and it can get a little breezy in the afternoon. Make sure to bring a kayak or SUP board to enjoy the lake. The only con was there were too many duck poop everywhere especially on the…

All in all it was great. Shaded spot fire pit, leftover firewood, clean, electricity, and plenty of room. However the red ant hills made it difficult to find a spot for our tent and it was difficult to get a spot in general with their first come first serve rules.

It was beautiful and it was clean place. The restroom was clean everyday and it provided some ice from machine for free. Will camp there again next time.
