It’ll be too easy to take a load off at tent-only Sierra Campground. Whether you’re a weekend warrior or a PCT hiker, Sierra has a riverview site with your name on it! Once you’ve cooked up a delish meal over the campfire, rest your tired puppies in the Yuba River or head down the road to Sardine Lake for some fishing. There are restrooms available, but you will have to haul in or treat the river water to wet your whistle. It’ll feel like a treat though when you’re maxin’ and relaxin’ at this stunning spot.
