Crystal Springs Campground is a perfect location for those who are exploring Carson Pass and Carson Valley. With 17 campsites and ample room at each site, you will not feel cramped. Sleep under the Jeffrey and lodgepole pines, and the aspens in the area add plenty of color in the fall. Fish for your dinner across the street at the west fork of the Carson River, then cook it up on the included grill.

This campground will not take reservations, so arrive early to guarantee your site. Try to select one of the sites along the base of the cliff, as they will be the furthest from the road and offer the most privacy.
