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

The check in process is slow and strange. You are not assigned a spot, you locate a spot and tell the office where you are. The road start out asphalt and are then becomes dirt and rock. The dust is horrible and care has to be taken when driving on the roads to not strike tree branches. Backing into a spot was difficult and a spotter was definitely needed. I had to raise my rig 3 inches to come close to level. I was with two other rigs and all our spots were very un level. The sites have water and electric. There are two dump stations when leaving. No charcoal BBQ's or propane fire pits were allowed. My spot was not wide enough to open my awning or park my vehicle without lots of maneuvering. The picnic table we had was falling apart. I will not return. - travelcouple

Second Stay at this Thousand Trails Park. Beautiful place but very few places for big rigs in the trees. Large asphalt area for big rigs in the "Cliffs" area with only 30 amp electric and water (dump station and honey wagon). Nice people and great amenities though. You can get satellite in the Cliffs area and cell phones work pretty well. Wifi at Family Center is bad. Lake with boating and fishing on premises and many more near. Will stay again. - teepee51

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

Sites vary greatly in how level they are, and how spacious. Pretty typical of a forest campground. I chose 'no' for waterfront sites: there are many that are within walking distance but I believe none closer than 40 yards or so. Generally there is a loop open during the off season for free camping until they can move in hosts. We stayed before Memorial Day weekend and there was a ton of confusion. Most of the sites were marked reserved for the upcoming weekend (weekend before Memorial Day, we were here on a Wednesday). Decided to stay until the weekend. And then on the next day one of the camp hosts came around to remove all of the reserved signs. We were prepared to leave anyway so we did. - braindead0

Every year we have a family reunion and stay at the Logger Campground near Stampede Lake. The hosts here are normally very friendly and helpful and keep the restrooms clean and well stocked with paper. The campsites are great. - Wild woman

This campground is on Stampede Reservoir, just north of Truckee. It is in Tahoe National Forest. The sites are level, paved, with shade, and almost all of them have a view of the lake, and a lot of them are right on the lake. The fishing was terrific. Also able to water ski or jet ski. Very kid and pet friendly. Very quiet at night and early morning. - endofrope

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

An OK park, just not our cup of tea. Easy access off I-80. Traffic noise is constant but was not a problem. Trains running about 5 times a night and blowing whistles was a problem. Just about time you would fall asleep, another whistle would blow.
Site was decently level, with good separation and strong electric. Bathrooms could use some attention. Not sure if this is always the case or just bad timing on our part. Mens restroom was OK; women's had one of two toilets out-of-order and dirty showers.
They make it a point to tell you no mats or rugs outside your rig yet the site next to us had a wood platform set up and was cluttered with propane tanks and plastic bins. Other sites similarly cluttered with charcoal bags, toys, beach towels, etc. Park seemed to attract clientele that had no respect for neighbors - time and time again kids, dog walkers, 20-somethings carrying there beer cans would cut through sites even if you were sitting out. Between less than ideal bathrooms and inconsiderate campers would probably look for another park if in area. - TravelinTail

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

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

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

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

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
