A 4x4 challenge and adventure

Amazing views! With ~45 minute bumpy drive from Verdi - you will find yourself descending in to one of the most scenic and peaceful valleys in the area.

David, our host, was extremely helpful with directions and confidence our vehicles would be able to make the haul.

I cannot stress enough, a 4x4 is NEEDED for this camp - may even recommend you want/need a lift kit on your vehicle for some parts of the ascent in to the private parcel of land. Once there - you will find pull-offs and private camp spots lined along a peaceful stream.

With the lack of accessible camping around the Tahoe area - this adventure was a welcomed one. If we are back in the area, and if our rigs can still handle the route - we will definitely be back!

This site was super private which is exactly what we wanted, however the road to get there was kind of intense. We did it in a Rav 4, but I'd recommend something that's a bit better at crawling through what is essentially a small dry creek. Lots of rocks and uneven ground so it helps to have a very high vehicle.

Other than that, all good.

Loved the camp site specially how remote And necessary it is to have high clearance vehicle. However, we brought our dog and child with us and had to remove broken glass.

Nice fire rings and plenty of firewood on the ground!

If you’re looking for total privacy and a very quiet and relaxing spot this place is awesome. We drive a stock Subaru Outback and access the place easily.

Really beautiful spot.
