Alpine Lakes

This is a great glimpse at what the High Sierra lakes further south look like… but better. Dispersed camp sites all over. (Make sure to follow signs and camp appropriately distanced from the lakes)

Beautiful and peaceful

For beauty and solitude alone this is a five star spot. Follow the dirt road into the little valley and soon a beautiful meadow opens up ahead with a small creek running through. Sites are located along the meadow and around a loop in the back portion of the campground where there’s a trail head into the wilderness. Camping here requires some planning ahead as there is no potable water available and only pit toilets but the trade off is the incredible scenery and peaceful surroundings. Keep your eyes open for horses and cattle!

Popular summer spot

Some great variety in this campground which includes walk in tent only sites! It’s a well laid out campground, tent only spots up front ( near the camp host and showers) and a loop around the back with some well separated sites just above the river.
Years ago this spot was a nice little secret but now it’s often packed and can get quite noisy, especially on the weekends.

Beautiful but crowded

Great family campground but if your in search of solitude this is not the spot. Situated across from the campground is the day use area which is very popular and noisy.
Facilities are clean and the campground is beautiful, great walking path too!

Awesome Group Site w/ Lake Access

Awesome group sites entering Stampede Reservoir with close lake access. 4 total group paved sites in the loop with the ability for large groups at each. Large fire pits, multiple picnic tables, charcoal grills, and areas for tents. Water and bathrooms available for each site, though it’s Dry Camping. Host onsite with wood for purchase. Great area for kids to play without the traffic of normal campgrounds.

Nice and quiet and beautiful under the moonlight

We came here because Dardanelle was closed down and we are absolutely grateful for that. This quiet piece of gem sits next to the river which shone so beautiful under the silky moonlight. It is clean and well maintained.

Great place

Beautiful place in the middle of pines. Spots are big, sanitary are clean. Hot showers, drinkin water, no place for dish. Calm and you can see bears!! Hosts are very kind.

Especially Beautiful

Fallen Leaf Lake and its campground were really beautiful and felt remote despite being pretty close to the development of South Lake Tahoe. Our spot (84) was not very private or great for a tent, but it worked for our overnight. The bath house was nice and new/clean. The hosts were super super friendly, but they called it a day pretty early (5?) so we missed out on buying firewood onsite. They did warn us about bears in such an admiring way, it was really sweet. However, we didn't see any bears, just poo about 20 feet from our tent (!). Fire ring, giant table, bear box, water, all as expected.

The lake itself is stunning. Seriously. Dusk was perfectly still and calm, but early morning was also beautiful. Would absolutely stay or visit here again.

Great for anglers!

We camped at Spicer on Labor Day weekend with our 28’ toy hauler (no OHV allowed on site). The campsites have a variety of trees/rocks and many are fairly private. We got one close to the walking trail down to the lake, which took just a couple minutes. The lake is nice but better for fishing than swimming/paddle boarding/kayaking. We did find swimming at the river leading to the lake, and it was only a short hike down. Utica is also a quick 10-15 minute drive and perfect for the activities mentioned.

The camp hosts were pleasant and helpful. The vault toilet bathrooms were clean. No reservations (except group camp, I think), hookups, or America The Beautiful pass discounts (but they do take Golden Age). There is AT&T cell service down by the lake. At the time (early September), there were a lot of bees and we saw some fresh bear poop right behind one of the sites.

Best campsite to be at away from the city

This campsite is quiet and peaceful. The person who is in charge was very welcoming. I enjoyed my stayed there. The place was beautiful where you can just relax and listen to sound of the water flowing throughout the day. I highly recommended this place to anyone who has a small or big group.

Isolated and Perfect

Unsure what everyone is talking about below in regards to "beaches" or "showers", this is right off 108 and as you can see on the map it's nowhere near beaches… I think there is some confusion. Maybe two mill creek campgrounds in Cali? I'll explain my experience. This campground is only 8 DOLLARS A NIGHT Y'ALL. This is because it does NOT have any running water whatsoever. Luckily we packed in enough jugs to be totally fine. Obviously this also accounts for showers. There are no showers. There also isn't a bear box on site. But the host explained bears weren't an issue in that specific area and to follow normal rules of putting it away in the car. It was fine. The host was thorough and caring, thanks Duane! The site was raked up before we got there and was very kept. So were the bathrooms, even though our campsite was pretty far away from it. Our campsite had some large rocks nearby we loved to climb on, you'll see pictured. A small creek nearby that was very very low. We were the only ones in that side of the campground and it was seriously awesome. Lake Donnell has a vista point nearby that is easy to get to, paved and all. Overall, if you're okay without water, this site is beautiful, isolated and cared for. I recommend it! Just be ready to swat away the bees when you eat. 🐝

Woodchuck is gone

I just drove by woodchuck campground and it is no longer open. Boulders have been placed in the entry way and trees have been dropped across the camp sites.

Awesome place

It was an awesome place to camp. It’s rough getting back there but it was well worth the trek back there!

Cozy

Nice bear boxes and bathrooms. Tent sites were big

Tranquility

At the top of the Sierras, El Dorado national forest, tucked in away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. Stunning views, and blue skies, campground is well maintained and accessible. Rvs and tent camping. Shallow lake that warms up a little for kayaking and swimming. Great family lake.

Awesome

The campground is located right next to the creek. I’ve caught a few trout out of it! Quiet area. Bears frequent the area so use the bear boxes and lock up your food! 25ish minutes from loon lake and the rubicon trail.

Beautiful Area - Limited Access

Very heavily wooded campground in a beautiful area. Vault toilets are available along with potable water spigots within a short walk from each site.

Large rigs will not fit in this campground. We reserved a spot that said it would fit a 30’ camper but we could not get our 29’ 5th wheel into the space because of the angle and posts along the loop. I would say that only a handful of spaces could fit a larger rig (10, 20 and 44 had better angles). There are 6”x6” posts buried along the loop that prevent tow vehicles from turning out past the asphalt.

The campground hosts were absolutely wonderful and kept the place immaculate.

Beautiful Serene Campground

Stayed at this Campground in the beginning of August. It was absolutely stunning. Super close to this place called The Pots. We arrived near sundown. Unpacked our gear and then walked to The Pots from our campsites. The views were amazing. The campsite host had fire wood for sale. There were new bathroom facilities installed. There were no showers or sinks. There was a fire pit at every campsite and a picnic table as well. Well worth it! Would definitely come here again.

Logger campgound

Good place to go, the sites that we were in were spread out not to packed which was nice.

Nice find

To be honest our first impression of this place was not the greatest. The sites are fairly close together and there wasn’t a lot of tree coverage in most sites. We used 3 sites for a group (7, 9, 13) 9 and 13 are right across from each other so that worked out nice. 7 was in another loop but kind of backed up to us so it worked out ok. Trukee river runs right by the campground, however if you want to stay in the sites next to it you will have to hike your heat to your site. I believe they were sites 23 to 27. It’s not far but if you have a lot of gear it might be more trouble that it’s worth. The only real negative is that the campground is right off the highway and you get a lot road noise day/night. Overall we had a great trip and the camp host was very friendly! I would definitely recommend this place and we will probably be back.

Great Place for a few days

I really liked this campground. The sites were roomy and not too close to your neighbors. The bathrooms have flush toilets and running water. They are kept very clean. Great location! The back of the campground is the trailhead to Duck Lake Pass. Only a few miles to the town of Mammoth. Only reason it did not get 5 stars is because there are no showers.

Quiet away from the crowd

The road in is an easy drive but the campground road itself is very rocky

Nice spots with warm lake

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!

Great Urban RV Park, best in Reno Area

The Reno area is our home base, we are full time RVers in a 35 foot long fifth wheel.  We come to Sparks Marina RV Park whenever we are in town visiting family, and we typically stay for at least a month or sometimes two months.  We have visited ALL of the RV parks in the vicinity, and in Carson City to the south.  By far this is the best place in the area.  The sites are not at all outdoorsy, it is more of an urban feel, with a concrete pad and fake grass, but each site has a tree which is nice for shade in the hot summers.  The circulation works well and if you have a pull through you have two parking options for your tower/toad vehicle.  The spaces are long enough for the larger rigs, and are wide enough for all of the slides, even on both sides, and for awnings to go out.  Staff here is EXCELLENT.  We are always treated well, and we like how they are always there to help.  The office has some supplies for sale, and the laundry room and bathrooms are the CLEANEST we have ever seen.  Facilities are modern.  Rec room has ping pong, and pool, a large screen tv as well.  There is a small pool and hot tub, which gets a lot of use when open.  They do not allow tents.  They have a pretty robust WiFi system, and all cellular options are available in the area, so internet is not a problem.  Prices are higher than other options but the location is excellent, staff is excellent and they do a good job of security as well.  We feel safe here, and it is always clean.

Right on the lake

Sights are right on the lake and in the shade of the trees most of the day so it doesn’t get too hot.

Amazingly quiet

The sights are well spaced giving you plenty of room. There is a pretty easy hike to a waterfall which is big or small depending on the season. The hot springs is privately owned so it is extra but worth enjoying.
