The Upper Little Truckee Campground is located on Highway 89, about 12 miles north of Truckee. The campground is situated on the banks of the Little Truckee River, at an elevation of 6,200 feet. A forest of lodgepole pine, aspen and juniper covers the area, offering partial shade. A few sites overlook the river. Fishing for rainbow and brown trout is a popular activity. The surrounding area offers hiking and biking trails. This campground is maintained and operated by the Sierraville Ranger District of the Tahoe National Forest.
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…
There is nothing here. Only a dirt road and animal carcasses. Don’t waste your time. It’s a huge dump.
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.
