The Campground... and The Road

THE CAMPGROUND

The campground is great. Many sites have lots of space between them, while a few are side-by-side with just a vehicle parking space separating them. Each has a level, wood-bordered dirt/gravel pad set up for a tent - usually placed in as quiet/remote corner of the site as…

Nice experience

Took my wife here for her first backpacking trip. Was over all a great experience. Went at the end of June . The lake is shallow in some areas with white sand . It got a bit windy at night and the mosquitoes were gone by the morning but mosquitoes do love hanging out by the water. Cool spot to stay…

Good location but some sites leave to be desired

More hook up locations for RV sites (50% are on wrong side).

Our site was so small we couldn’t fit in our vehicle after parking the 22’ trailer even though it’s “rated” for 30’ vehicles + 2 cars

Good general location and reasonable access to water

No laundry on site

It was just ok..

First time there and we reserved a spot, site 21 and the door of our camper wasn’t facing our camp. I noticed a few sites like that. It’s pretty tight spaces and not a lot of privacy. We ended up moving to site 4, had more room and our door was facing our camp :)

A beautiful getaway

We had such a great time at Cold Springs Campground! The drive to get there is a little intense (24 miles of steep windy roads that is mostly only one lane so you have to beware of oncoming traffic), but so worth it. You’re surrounded by forest, have a beautiful river running through the area and…

Liked it better than we thought we would

No cell service and you’ll definitely have road noise during the day. However, it quieted substantially for nighttime sleeping hours so we slept fine. There are nice campsites located beside the Little Truckee River if you’re luck enough to get one. Easy hiking trail along the river takes you down…

Convenient location with great amenities

Great location if you want to be near Costco and the capital city.  Great views of the Sierras and the Carson valley.  Sites are narrow, about twice the width of your RV, and separated by chain link fencing.  But all sites are perfectly flat, paved pull-throughs; easy in, easy out parking.  Also…

  • View from porch of campground store.
  • Hawk perched next to my RV window.

Nice Campground

We were able to grab a first come/first serve site on a Thursday afternoon. Ample shade and no leveling needed at site #17. Fire pit and picnic table are below the paved parking pad so if you’re staying a while, you’ll get a bit of a workout going back and forth. Joanne, the camp host, is such an…

Beautiful location

You could ask for a better place to camp with having to backpack in. Site are separated with scrubs to provide a secluded feeling.

Small store to prevent a long drive if you forget something.

Sweet Spot

Easy to see right off the road with plenty of campsites down either side of a nice dirt road. Rocky and steep road access to Scott’s lake, but easy camping on the edge of the valley.

A Little Road Noise.

This RV campground is right off I-80 and you can hear the busy noise from the highway. Putting that aside it is a beautiful little RV resort with lots of mature trees nestled on the very flanks of the mighty Sierra.

Boomtown Bonanza!

What a nice campground! Right off I-80 and close to the Boomtown Casino but oh so peaceful and quiet. This campground has everything for the RV camper. It is also close to the Truckee River and great fishing.
