Campground Description

Campground Description

Contributor

Located within an easy drive of some of the largest ski resorts in Tahoe as well as Truckee and the North Shore, Granite Flat Campground is a great location for those who are eager to explore the many trails and adventures in the area. There are 58 standard, non-electric RV sites and seven tent sites. Though there are few tent sites, they are secluded and very close to the Truckee River.

All seven tent sites are walk-ins, meaning you will need to park a few hundred yards away. The sites that are farthest from the parking area are the recommended spots. While these sites are separated from the main road by a tree line, you will hear occasional traffic at night. However, the proximity of the road is outweighed by the easily accessed river, where you may enjoy fishing or swimming in warm weather. Squaw Valley and Alpine Meadows are both close by, along with the fantastic Five Lakes Trail.
