This is a PG&E lake/campground on the Tahoe National Forest. Car-top launch for kayaks and boats. There is no boat ramp at the lake.
This lake is a quiet getaway, with waterfront access and a warm lake. Short hike in but has picnic tables and bear boxes.
Definitely a gorgeous view all the way around! Lake was very warm and had a epic rope swing if you can find it. The camp spots were a good size and with fire pits and bench tables BUT there isn’t a road to actually drive around the spots, you have to park and walk all your stuff down to your spot. Kinda sucked to do that, but other than that it was great!
This place is great for swimming in the summer as the lake gets really warm. Across the lake is an amazing rope swing not for the faint of heart (its big). You need a floatation device like a blow up with oars to get there. 300 foot walk from cars to campground so bring a dolly/wagon. $15 a night fee. Bring a lot of drinking/dishes water (no spigots, no sinks). No RV sites/hookups. Short drive back down Bowman Lake rd to the yuba river. Cold water but beautiful hiking and something called the emerald pools. Rucker lake rd is a dirt road! AWD recommended but not totally needed
