Solar powered campers, harken here! This little campground is a prime place to face your panels to the south and soak in the sun’s energy. With little vegetation in a wide open area, Boyington Mill Campground will keep you powered up for as long as you stay. But hey, if you don’t care about solar then how about a nice tan? And you can practically step right outside your trailer or tent and cast a line into the Little Truckee River. This is livin’ off the land at its finest.

Nothing wrong with this campground...certainly beats paying summer rates at Tahoe hotels. It's about 30 minutes to Kings Beach!

The campsite is sandwiched between the road and the river, neither of which are too loud. Fellow campers were respectful of one-another, despite very few distinctions between sites. Flat tentsites, but most people had RVs. Accessible by any car (our MINI did fine).

This is definitely a site geared more towards RVs and people wanting to explore the nearby OHV trails on 4wheelers and dirtbikes. I'm sure it could get rowdy, but our time there was pleasant.

Suggestion: If you drive up the road 1/2 mile and park at the trailhead, you can get a nice spot along the river all to yourself after a 5 minute hike.

Pardon the mess. Site 9 had a decent tent site.Nice little spot up the road half a mile, worth checking out for seclusion.
