Find privacy, seclusion and solitude in nature at Alpine Valley Camp /|\. Encompassed by Tahoe & Toiyabe National Forests, this Alpine Valley rolls across 10,000 acres at approximately 5,500 feet with towering mountainous peaks on three of its sides rising above 8,000 feet. A meadow with creeks and wildlife lines the Valley floor.  Depending on location, distant peaks in the Sierra Nevada Mountain range rise into view. 

The private and secluded Camp sits at the edge of the meadow on 40 acres. It offers multiple sites for vista viewing, camping and fire pits set along two seasonal creeks.  Available for one camping party's exclusive use, basic camping comforts include picnic tables, metal and stone fire pits, and an out house with a view. 

Follow the lower creek out from the Camp into the meadow and Valley floor to find a damned swimming hole. Off-road vehicles, dirt bikes, hiking, fishing, water sports, golf, skeet, and the like are available at or near the Camp, as is  LTE cellphone and data services.

Alpine Valley Campsite is a short distance to Reno, Truckee, Stampede and Boca Reservoirs, and Lake Tahoe. It is located approx. 4.5 miles from Stampede Reservoir, 5.4 miles from the Truckee River in Verdi, and 17 miles from the Boca Reservoir and Truckee River in Truckee. 

Host highly recommends 4x4/AWD vehicle OR at least 7" of ground clearance, driving slow on dirt and rocky roads (approximately a 25-minute drive from entrance of Toiabye National Forest-Verdi, CA entrance at 5-10 mph), and experience with pack-in, pack-out camping. Detailed welcome letter with local destinations, GPS coordinates, Valley map and links provided upon booking.   

Nightly rate is for up to two campers; any camping party is limited to eight (8) campers and each additional camper is assessed a guest fee of $44/nt   If you'd like to collect wood from the property, simply purchase a bundle of wood when completing your booking. This is a pack-in, pack-out camp.

Cabela's located in Verdi for all camping needs. Eats, drinks, market, gas, et cetera, are conveniently located in Verdi, too. 

Alpine Valley Camp /|\ appreciates the outdoor enthusiasts who have come for one or more adventures.

THIS LISTING IS NOT APPROPRIATE FOR TRAILERS OR VEHICLES WITH LOW GROUND CLEARANCE. The listing should explicitly state this. Otherwise it is a beautiful spot.

Unfortunately for the outrageous price we paid the camp area was terrible! We expected to be out in the wilderness but the fact that there was no natural water on the property and the closest…..not the truckee River like the listing says was extremely far away on some of the worst roads I have ever seen. Mind you we paid $600 for 2 days, 10 people. Only one car can fit and there was just barely enough room for us. The property is in pretty bad condition. Chairs were missing, and toilet was really really bad. Again they charge waaaay to much for no water on the property and a toilet in the open. It’s a rip off……also even with a large truck the roads are absolutely terrible. Again, it’s a rip off and I don’t suggest this place for anyone.

David was such a great host. He answered all my questions promptly. It was a fun and awesome journey to get to the camp site. David's step by step instructions were flawless. There are spray painted landmarks to assist once you get closer to the site.
Getting to the site was a blast. There are some trails by the site if you want to explore. Definitely need a 4x4 or AWD, and clearance will help.
The site itself was peaceful and quiet. Didn't see any animals at all during the weekend. I suggest you pay for the firewood package. There's plenty out there to keep you warm.

Really beautiful location and fun off-roading to get to the location. When we arrived at the site there were dirt bike riders taking a break in the site and we saw a lot of riders during our time there as well as a lot of gunshots going off from what I would presume to be hunters. The directions were good and the campsite was in pretty good shape. Unfortunately the stream was dry, not sure if you could fish there either way. Used the overlanding trails to mountain bike ride and then fished in dog creek closer to Verdi. I would definitely go back to this area to overland as there are a lot of places out in this area to stay.

Amazing property completely surrounded by National Forest land! Host was very communicative and helpful. Great place for experienced campers wanting the off-grid National Forest experience but seeking a reserved campsite.

In order to keep this great place available to us all for years to come: please leave the site in great condition and practice meticulous fire safety!

Great place to camp if you're looking to get away from people. The campsite had everything we needed from chairs, to picnic tables, although we were prepared with our own had someone beaten us to the campsite.

We had a 2WD Toyota Rav 4 in our group and they made it to camp in the rain with no problem. Although we also had two lifted 4Runners in case they got stuck. The trail was slightly bumpy but nothing that would deter us from coming back.

All in all, I'd recommend if you're camping in a larger group and don't want to deal with disturbing others!

Amazing secluded spot! Best directions I’ve ever had to a hipcamp. Really nice setup at camp too with some adirondack chairs and a couple nice fire pits. We spent all afternoon just relaxing and exploring.
