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

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.

Recreation Heaven

Great camp ground with spacious spaces. Accomadates large groups and tent camping. Friendly host and very clean. Stones throw from the boat ramp and Stampede Lake. Only down is the place is a little noisey.

Beautiful area with an even prettier lake!

Lots of young people out late and having fun, suggest going when there isn’t a major Holiday so it’s more peaceful.

Camping at Stampede

We loved camping at Logger Campground bear the Truckee Tahoe area. Put your boat in the water, set up camp, enjoy the long weekend with all sorts of water sports and tree climbing.

camping with tent or RV is available.

Fire pits are taller than I’m used to, so build a bigger fire because the temps drop a lot overnight.

Great Experience

Our visit to Loggerhead campground actually didn't get off to a good start. When we arrived at the campground a pickup truck was parked in our spot. It was late and we couldn't find the owner so we ended up staying outside the park on the road. The manager got things worked out in the morning and refunded our money for the night before.

The campground is very dog and kid friendly. There are spots for tents and campers of all sizes. Stampede Reservoir is great for boating, skiing and swimming. Each campsite has a fire ring and grill. There are water spigots placed at regular intervals. There are some campsites that are next to the lake. It's only an hour from Reno.
