Nice big trees, well maintained. Great setting out in the Martis Valley. smaller campground does not feel crowded. Very clean. Nice trails nearby. Fishing in Martis Creek Reservoir.
Reservable sites, larger campground. Showers, trails, Visitor's Center and Museum, great access to Donner lake, boat rental concessions right there. Ranger programs. This is a really fun family campground suitable for tents or trailers/RVs. You can swim, picnic, boat, see eagles hunting, close to Truckee. So many things to do in the area. Close to Lake Tahoe. Fun Cycling too.
This is a nice little campground to stay in while passing through. For longer stays I prefer sites that are off the beaten path and not right on the highway. Pros: easy river access for fishing, nicely wooded.
