Overview

Boca Campground is located on beautiful Boca Reservoir in the Tahoe National Forest, 15 minutes from Truckee, California. Visitors enjoy the area for its boating, swimming, fishing and abundant trail opportunities.

Natural Features:

The campground is situated on a peninsula on the western shore of Boca Reservoir. Mature Jeffrey pine and fir trees provide some shade in this open campground overlooking the reservoir.

Recreation:

Boca Reservoir is a popular location for boating, water skiing, swimming and fishing. A boat ramp is located less than a mile from the campground.

The Little Truckee River is nearby and offers some of Northern California's best catch-and-release fly-fishing. The surrounding area offers hiking, biking, horseback riding and off-road vehicle trails.

Facilities:

The campground offers single-family sites, a few of which are designated for tent camping only. Each site is equipped with a picnic table and campfire ring. Vault toilets are provided but there is no water.

Nearby Attractions:

Stampede Reservoir is 12 miles north, where boating, water skiing, swimming and fishing are popular activities available.

The Camp Store is located just inside Logger Campground on Stampede Reservoir. A variety of camping and fishing supplies, ice, groceries and souvenirs are available.
