Camping near Truckee gives outdoor enthusiasts a choice of dream locations year-round. Well maintained campgrounds offer activities on site and in the surrounding area. RV Parks offer full hook-up facilities to make this place your home-away-from-home. Camp beside the Truckee River for daily access to fishing, boating, tubing and kayaking. Head to Donner Memorial State Park to pitch your tent on the slopes of the magnificent Sierra Nevada mountains, explore fabulous trails, and cool off in Lake Donner's swimming beaches. Try ranch camping up in the woods around Prosser Reservoir where you can cast a line from the shore, take out a boat, or go hiking and mountain biking. Camping near Truckee also places you less than 30 minutes from glorious Lake Tahoe with its swimming beaches and water fun. You're just a short trip away from the major ski resorts such as Squaw Valley and Northstar. If you're new to snow camping, book a two-day course through the Truckee Chamber of Commerce to learn tips and techniques. While some campgrounds and RV parks have general stores, historic downtown Truckee is close by when you need to stock up on food, gear and other provisions.

The cabin has a great little deck that gets tons of sun. (And at night it makes for a good stargazing platform!)
The big cabin windows get direct sunlight in the afternoon. You wouldn't expect there to be as much light as there is, considering you're in the middle of the woods.
The loft sleeps two people comfortably, and has a great view of the site.
The Pioneer Trail is a 5-minute walk from the cabin. It's 25 mile long trail that weaves through dense forests and ice cold rivers, with sweeping views and complete privacy. On our 10-mile run, we didn't bump into a single person.
Towering trees make the cabin look miniature.
