Great Campground

We've been camping at Wench Creek for years. The Camp Host is great, always helpful. You have to get up there early to find a spot & more or less you are waiting for someone to vacate their camp spot. Everyone is friendly.

Siteright on the lake (don't remember campsite #).

Quiet and peaceful

The best part of this campground right off the 580 between Reno and Carson City was the sites were well spaced under the mature pines. So quiet and peaceful. The site pad I was in #62 was at a slight angle but #lil_cricket did well.

Worth the Drive

We went on the weekend of Sept. 18 through Sept. 20th, 2021. The drive wasn't as bad as I thought, I actually enjoyed it. The campground was nice, the host is nice as well, not a lot of other people where there so it was fairly private. Our site was by the lake, while it was a beautiful site the…

Great 2 night camping

Beautiful, quite and clean campground. A few minutes walk away from the Fallen Leaf lake with stunning view, where you can do water sport.

Hidden Jewel

Turtle Rock is a hidden jewel. It is well kept and maintained. Showers are provided for a small fee so make sure you have quarters. Toilets are dispersed throughout the campground. There’s a section for tent camping as well as RV camping. No reservations required as I always drive in whenever…

Nice campground

Sweet campground. Quiet and peaceful. There were several sites available on a Saturday night (Smokey skies from Sierra fires may have lessened the demand). Easy access sites. Some more private than others. But beautiful setting all around. Can walk 5 minutes to Silver Lake, and to the private…

Must be smaller rv

The sites are very unlevel and tight for larger rigs, but in the trees. With the water levels low, it’s a steep hill to lake. Overall, beautiful place but tricky for some trailers and don’t recommend trying to park in the dark.

Excellent spot in Tahoe

A great campsite not too far from South Lake Tahoe. While most campsites are on the smaller size, there are a few which can accommodate larger tents. The hosts were very friendly and on the whole, those who camp here are courteous and respectful of others and the site. I highly recommend this…

Beautiful disbursement camping

Had the most beautiful, remote, private site with creek running through it, under the pines. Mosquitoes bad early in summer season. Visited in May, June, July and Aug.
