Great stay, friendly host
This place was great. The host Jay was super friendly and helpful and went above and beyond to make sure I had a comfortable stay during a snowstorm. Good location close to Lake Tahoe and skiing.

Solid spot
We camped here in our van and it was a great spot. It is fairly close to I-80. The car noise dies down after midnight, but it can be a little bit loud up until then. I did not use the shower, but it looked cool! I did not see the toilet, but I also did not ask the host where it was, so it could be there and I just missed it. Note that all the spots are right next to each other, but we were unbothered by this. Overall, a solid spot to park the car and sleep! Also the view when you wake up is very pretty, a big open meadow.

Great Price and Close to Road (+/-)
Honest review - We knew this site was new and it is winter in the Sierra's .... What is experienced with a friendly camp coordinator at the U-haul and being the only vistored the night we stayed we could use any site we wanted so we put up our tent inside an A-frame that would normally be using for firewood. We did this because we arrived late and the snow was deep and soft enought it was going to be a lot of work to put up our tent. So for friendliness and easy of dealing with the conditions which were snow and wind - 10/10. Now for the negative. It is very close to HWY 80 from an road noise point of view. So there was constant background road noise and some loud Truck Jake-Braking all night. The price was right. The site was good enough for one night. But ear plugs or other sound damping might have made it better for the two of us.

Great place to park for the night off of I80. It was very conveniently located and was one of the only places to camp in the winter before reaching Lake Tahoe from the West.

Basic campsite. Great location to stop on the way to Tahoe. A little hard to find at night, but it’s right next to the U-Haul. If you hit the restaurants you went to far.
