Each site has a bear box that must be used to store food and other scented items such as toiletries and pet food. Accessible vault toilets and drinking water also provided.Firewood is available for purchase from the host at Silver Creek or Granite Flat campgrounds nearby.

Most single family sites and group campgrounds can be reserved at www.recreation.govor (877) 444-6777.

Visitors enjoy the area for its bike riding and hiking opportunities, as well as its proximity to Lake Tahoe and Squaw Valley. A paved trail starts just a few miles south of the campground at the entrance to Squaw Valley. Walkers, skaters, and bike riders can follow the paved trail to Tahoe City and beyond as it parallels the Truckee River, or head west into Squaw Valley for food and entertainment. Campers also enjoy swimming and tubing on the river. Rafting opportunities are available in the summertime in Tahoe City. Fly-fishing on the Truckee River is also a popular activity. Special restrictions apply.
