Beautiful get away

Santa Cruz Island is a beautiful place to get away. We practically had the campground to ourselves. The campground is in good shape. There are yellow jackets swarming each water spigot but they don’t prevent you from filling up and they go away at night. It was very windy; lots of dirt blew into our tent at night. Bathrooms were okay… still give it 5 stars and can’t wait to come back!

Great campsite

Spacious campsites with soft dirt/gravel that makes tent camping pretty comfy. Bathrooms were in good shape. The camp store is a close walk and has everything you would need. Stunning views of Lassen Peak from the lake.

Favorite campground to date

Visited Grandstaff Campgroud in May 2017. I’ve done a decent amount of camping and this is by far my favorite. Beautiful scenery in every direction. Clean facilities. Can’t wait to come back some day.


The campsite was on a slant but not that bad. Bathrooms were clean, check in was seamless. Felt lucky to snag a reservation here!

Good location

Host was nice. Campsites are small and there is lots of road noise. But overall, good location if you’re exploring North Lake Tahoe.

Will come back

Great location just a short drive to the entrance of Yosemite. Great for families aka lots of kids. Clean facilities. Campsites are close to each other but overall it was fine.
