Upper Little Truckee Campground, CA-89, Sierraville, CA 96126

This location is NOT Upper Little Truckee Campground, CA-89, Sierraville, CA 96126 that is 62 miles WEST of this TENT / Location. THIS IS JUST THE RIVER and some DIRT. 

This is a dirt patch under the bridge off the highway 80. FREE dirt lot and other sites just off the river. Good for a rest stop and maybe a night or two. THIS IS NOT A TRUE CAMP SITE. It is just a spot to get out of the sun and set along the river. Free camping…

No camp

There is nothing here. Only a dirt road and animal carcasses. Don’t waste your time. It’s a huge dump.

Good overnight

Good spot to stop overnight. A few spots further up river. We stayed here with our 22' pull behind with no problems. Stayed here on our way to and from Yosemite. Good fishing on Truckee River.
