This is one of those campgrounds that attracts both adventurous hikers eager to clamber up Slide Mountain as well as local families and community leaders. It’s a great stop over on a trip through the eastern Sierra.
Camped here with a friend back in april, it was super cold, but a great spot.
Ok - Pretty great spot. Breezed in, set up on the tent only loop, and enjoyed the rest of the night. Twenty five buckeroo seems to be the going rate and I've certainly spent more on less.
Flushie toilets, bear lockers, easy access to Reno/Tahoe.
Freeway noise noticeable, but not objectionable if you're a city baby like me.
Great campground, lots of spots for both tent and RV. Easy access right off the freeway but tucked into trees so you don't hear any road noise. Nice hiking trails, clean restrooms and very nice staff. Well maintained! I camp here one week a month while I work in Tahoe and it's open year around. First come first serve!
The fees are pretty based on the honor system. $20 a night., $5 for an extra vehicle and 7 people max per site. There is both tent and trailer camping. They have bathrooms and showers.
This is one of my fav hiking locations in Nevada! I love the variety. There are different levels of hikes from easy to more difficult. There are lots of trees with excellent shade and you can't beat the views of Washoe Valley when you get to the top.
Since this campground is on an incline, one is protected from the Washoe Valley winds. The campsites are well marked and have a parking space. Only one car is allowed per space, so if a group is going to take multiple campsites, only one car per parking pad, the rest have to park down by the main entrance. Many hiking trails here. The pond still has not recovered from the drought. The bathrooms have flush toilets. There are two group campgrounds, one walk-in tent only and a RV only. One downside, now that the new I-580 has been built, there is some freeway noise at night.
