Overview

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

Natural Features:

The campground is situated on the northeastern shores of the Boca Reservoir, near where the reservoir meets the Little Truckee River.

The campground is characterized by open areas dotted with sagebrush. A few pines are scattered throughout the site but shade is limited.

Recreation:

Boca Reservoir spans over 900 acres and is a popular location for boating, water skiing, swimming and fishing. A boat ramp is located near Boca Campground on the southwest end of the reservoir, but may be subject to closure during low water levels.

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, with a few located right along the waterfront. Most sites are fairly exposed with little to no shade, but are well-spaced, providing for plenty of separation between sites.

Each site is equipped with a picnic tables and campfire ring. Vault toilets and drinking water are provided.

Nearby Attractions:

Stampede Reservoir is 9 miles north, where boating, water skiing, swimming and fishing are popular activities.

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.

Lake Tahoe is conveniently located only 25 minutes away. Tahoe offers excellent boating, kayaking, fishing, hiking and scenic driving opportunities, as well as dining, shopping and lodging options.
