We parked in the Cliffs paved lot with water & 30 amp electric which worked okay, as did Verizon. Restrooms were a short walk near the clean & inviting pool. Corn hole boards were outside the lodge for playing at will. The pool was about 80 degrees. The entry road has a few potholes which can be maneuvered around. The staff was generally friendly and helpful. The laundry is closed on Monday and Tuesday. We like the more rustic areas, and have camped there before near the lake, but wanted to avoid dust as not all obey the 5mph speed limit. We are Thousand Trails members and the cost reflects our annual dues. - Bud H

The entrance road was very rough with potholes. Upon checking in, we were directed to an area that larger rigs usually use. It was a paved parking lot with water and electric connections inconsistently placed around the perimeter! Our connections were on the opposite side of where they should have been. We were lucky! The park ran out of sites and rigs that came in later were in the lodge parking lot with no hookups! Speaking of the lodge, it smelled badly and was non-inviting. We later went for a walk and there is a lovely area in the woods along the lake. The road was a little rough, but there were plenty of big rigs in there. We decided to walk along the path that was lakeside. We got a little way and it was barricaded off, so we couldn't walk to the lake access from this area! This park is in need of some TLC. It is the worst Thousand Trails park in which we have stayed. The camp store has expensive ice cream bars, a few drinks and ice. There are no stores or restaurants close by. Make sure to use exit 160 when getting off 80. See Snowflower website for directions. - Susan L27

This is a beautiful campground with lots of large pine trees. The campground is first come first serve so you literately drive around to find an open site which can be a little challenging given how narrow and winding the roads are. You also could end up with having to camp in an asphalt parking lot if no spaces are open. The lake is great and fun to swim. We really enjoyed the campground, but the sites can be difficult to back in larger trailers. - Dme2golf

I've stayed here before and it was OK. I want to like this campground because it looks good "on paper" - clean, very quiet, forested setting, close to Truckee and the freeway (but no freeway noise), inexpensive laundry. The problem is the design of the park - you share your driveway with another camper, with utilities between you. But that means on the other side, you have to share your patio with another camper (great if you are traveling with someone else). Even worse, the sites are inconsistent. We had a sunny, narrow, asphalt and gravel patio, while other people had shady, large patios, with a lawn, shrubs, and even flowers. Sites 120-127 get blasted with sun from 11 am to sunset and are surrounded by asphalt and gravel. If you get a 30 amp site, you are not allowed to use A/C or space heaters because it will blow the campground circuit. They claim to be upgrading that soon. The campground has new owners and service seems to be lacking. I wanted to book a 15 day stay, but oddly, they limited me to a 14 day stay with no explanation (and it doesn't even make sense to have that restriction.) I didn't like my sunny, gravel and asphalt site and asked if I could move sites (even if I had to wait a week or so). They said no because the campground was fully booked every night. So over the two weeks I stayed there, I noticed lots of empty sites that I could have been placed in. You'd think they'd prioritize a camper who was staying two weeks instead of an overnight camper. So I don't think I'd be staying here again, unless it was an overnight stay. - bendoregonrv

Good, clean park for overnight. Narrow, KOA-type sites, but good shade and paved access roads. Outstanding K-9 park, former baseball field. - Bill Kelly

We stayed here 5 years ago- and it's even better. Very clean well run park. Huge dog parks. Tall trees all around. Smells great! They lost a star because the sites are so close. I could pass a cup of coffee threw my window to the rig next to us. Less then 1/2 the sites have 50 amps. - Tredguy

Great CG along the Truckee river. Best spots are near the river yet even those have considerable road noise. But along the road highway 89 it far worse. Paved pads and drives. Still a place we will go to agin. Just a mile to Truckee. - Bobcat1

Nice park located right on the Truckee River.
Very close to the freeway so highway noise is present.
Park was very clean.
Camp Host was very cordial. - Fyrflie1

Park is located directly on the Truckee River. About half of the sites have river access. Bathrooms are pit toilets but were very clean. Park is located very close to Highway 89 and road noise can be heard at all times of the day. No shower facilities. Camp Hosts were very friendly and helpful. - fyrflie

We stayed here because we wanted to see the Perseid meteor shower and the park is at 6000 feet. The camp sites are large, plenty of space. Good for rigs to 24 feet, not good for larger rigs. Our trailer is 19 feet and we could fit our trailer plus tow vehicle in site driveway barely. We stayed in site 18. Partly shady so we could get our batteries recharged. Park is oriented toward the lake which we did not use but is beautiful. There are bears so they provide bear box in each site but we didn't see any. Showers are $.25 per minute and clean as are restrooms. We have been here before and will return. - bdornbush

Dry camping for tents or for RV under 24'. Very tight turns. Big boulders. No directional signs for one-way roads in order to back-in. Crunched up our Airstream on a boulder trying to turn around. Our fault, should have driven around again! Nice trails, lots of room around each site. Must unhitch to fit vehicle into the concrete pad, which is very wide and level. If you don't have a problem with rig size, it is a very pretty park, high in the Donner Pass area just west of Truckee off I-80. - User424

Stayed here 3 nights. There is aircraft activity but it is not intrusive. They use an electronic ranger to perform registration that accepts cash, credit/debit cards, & nations park passes for discounts. With our discount (America the Beautiful) we paid $10.00 per night. The campground host was quite helpful in pointing out area attractions and points of interest. This is a delightful location, we would stay here again. - SCClockDr

No showers available; toilets occasionally smelly. The sites were huge and beautiful so we ignored any other inconveniences! The small lake is catch and release only. We were looking forward to kayaking in the lake, but after one day the lake had to be closed due to algae. We lucked into a fantastic, free air show next door at the airport. Yeah, we'd go back again! We love airplanes, gliders and airports, so we did not notice the occasional noise. Also, glider port next door. - floridagayle

Martis Creek Lake Campground is how everyone refers to this park, although the official name is Alpine Meadows. Campground is run by the Army Corps of Engineers. There are no hookups, but each site is spacious, with a fire pit, barbecue, picnic table and iron hook to hang a lantern. Most sites are at least partially shaded by pines. Campground is available only on a first-come, first-served basis; no reservations. Lots of space available during the week; fairly full on the weekend. Ranger hosts Sat. evening presentations in the amphitheater. Location on highway 267 is convenient to town (about 4 miles)and proximate to lots of hiking and biking. Loads of off-leash room for dogs to run and splash in the lake. Our dogs thought they died and went to heaven! About 1 1/2 miles off the highway, so no traffic noise. Sites are described as limited to 30 ft., but we were able to camp here in a 40 ft. motorhome. - PeeweeRV

This family-run campground has seen better days and was for sale when we visited. The all back-in, paved, 30 amp full-service sites are accessed up a steep and winding paved interior road that's sorely in need of maintenance. Trees need trimming both on the access road and the sites; the owner refused to trim pine branches that were digging into the side of our rig. There is an extra fee for everything from pets to rest room keys. Most of the sites accommodate big rigs and over half appear to be satellite-friendly. - RvTravelerNTechie

We stayed here for one night as we were passing through to the coast of CA. Pros: lots of grass, clean sites, level sites, plenty of space Cons: no dog area, dumpster at the bottom of the hill, right next to the highway, lots of long-termers There was a bit of highway noise but the location of this park was great. You're about 30 min north of Tahoe and 20 min west of Reno. So, lots to do. We'd definitely come back for another, longer stay in the future. - SWGB

Nice small park outside of Truckee. Sites are paved back-ins but plenty long for large RV's. They only have a few 50 amp sites that are not next to each other. The staff in the office is great! They are juggling checking in RV's & running the well stocked store, plus making outstanding deli sandwiches! Just an FYI, the entry into the park is small and congested and the roads throughout the park are one lane only but not too bad at all to maneuver. Super easy access on/off the freeway to get around Truckee, Lake Tahoe, etc. - coolplanetg

I stayed one night while traveling and it was all I could find on short notice. Two basic issues: 1) My paved back-in site was very narrow with low hanging trees on both sides. I had to break off branches to get my galley slide open, and I didn't bother opening on of my lounge slides because of branches. 2) my site only had 30 amp service in 95 degree weather. The water and electric and sewer are stacked on top of each other. The paved campground loop is very tight, steep and exiting with a 40' MH is tricky. There is no place to park while hooking up toad. On the plus side you can buy gas and diesel at the store, and the WiFi worked better than most places. It appears that most people stay here for local rafting and lake Tahoe is only 30 minutes away. This place has a lot of trees which I like. However, I do not rate places well that don't trim limbs at a height that allows RVs scratch-free access. I would not stay here again especially at $51 with discount. - homey

If you don't mind dry camping, this is a great place to stay. It is reasonably priced and because so many RVer's want hook-ups, it is relatively easy to get a last minute reservation. We were able to get a reservation only a week before, which is pretty good for a weekend in June. We love the location, just a few miles from Truckee and not far from Lake Tahoe, so there is a lot of fun stuff to do within a short drive. Yet it feels like you're away from it all. We like going for short hikes with our dogs and there is a very pretty path that runs along the Truckee River. There's also a wide variety of plants and trees, which I like to photograph. The camp hosts were wonderful. We spent time talking with them each day and they were very friendly and gave us new RVer's lots of good advice. The campground has very few amenities and it would be nice to have potable water, but I would absolutely recommend this for an escape from the valley heat. - cj2012

This is a typical National Forest camping area. Sites enjoy a view of the Truckee River and good fishing abounds there. Nice area for a couple days. No hook ups. Dump station a few miles away. We stayed in a 32 ft 5th wheel. - Mr J

The campground is very minimal. The site map online doesn't match the site layout. The sites are very vague on where is the best to setup at. Pretty open to the elements, but close to the lake when the water level is up. Lots of OHV trails that you can get to from the campground. No need to trailer your toys out of camp to play. - AlbertG
