Tahoe National Forest Onion Valley Campground

Best Camping Spot Yet!

Came here as a plan B after the road to Bowman had too much snow. This was one of those plan B’s that turned out better than the original!

Only one other group on the opposite end of the campground since it has a north/south side. There aren’t many spots and they are well spaced out. Tables and fire rings in most of them. Vault toilet near the entrance was in surprisingly good condition. The dump spot by the front was obviously not bear/raccoon proof enough and I assumed rangers hadn’t been through in a while. Meadow near the campgrounds is amazing and was perfect for my dog to frolic through. Frogs are noisy at night due to the streams that run nearby. Fire scarring just up the road made for good firewood and a humbling reminder of what a wildfire leaves behind.
