Overview

Boyington Mill Campground is located on the Little Truckee River, just 15 minutes from Truckee. Visitors enjoy the area for its fishing, abundant hiking opportunities and off-road trails. Stampede and Boca reservoirs are nearby for boating and swimming.

Natural Features:

The campground is situated on the banks of the Little Truckee River, which is known as one of Northern California's best catch-and-release fly-fishing streams. It is situated among sparse Jeffrey pine and fir trees and shade within the campground is limited.

Recreation:

Fly-fishing for rainbow and brown trout in the Little Truckee River is a popular activity enjoyed by visitors to the campground. The surrounding area offers hiking, mountain biking and off-road vehicle trails.

The campground offers single-family campsites, each equipped with a picnic table, campfire ring and grill. Vault toilets are provided, but there is no drinking water available at the site.
