This beautiful wooded campground located in the high sierra mountains of
Northern California offers fun and adventure for all ages. We have rental
boats on our beautiful 23 acre lake, swimming, fishing, paint ball course,
hiking and mountain biking are available nearby. For those who like to take
a few risks gambling at BoomTown or Lake Tahoe are both a short drive.
For those who are looking for some R&R you can find a quite place on our lakeâ€™s sandy beach to read a book, go bird watching (Eagles, hawks, geese, woodpeckers, and snowy egrets have all been spotted), or just enjoy the scenery of the Sierra Nevada Mountains.
