Overview

Lakeside Campground is located on the picturesque Prosser Reservoir, in the Tahoe National Forest. It is just 10 minutes from Truckee. Visitors enjoy the area for its boating, canoeing, fishing and abundant hiking and off-road trails.

Natural Features:

The campground is situated on the northwestern shore of the reservoir, in an open area with scattered pine and fir trees. Some sites have limited shade, while others are in full sun. Many sites have views of the reservoir and surrounding mountains.

Recreation:

Prosser Reservoir is a popular location for canoeing, swimming and fishing. Power boating is allowed but a 10-mph speed limit is enforced. A boat ramp is located less than a mile from the campground at Prosser Ranch Group Campground.

The surrounding area offers many hiking, biking, horseback riding and off-road vehicle trails.

Facilities:

The campground offers single-family campsites, a few of which are designated for tent camping only. Each site is equipped with a picnic table and campfire ring. Vault toilets and drinking water are provided.

Nearby Attractions:

Boca Reservoir is 30 minutes east of the campground, offering additional boating, water skiing, swimming and fishing opportunities.

In the case of motorcycles, the first two are considered to be one vehicle and the third and fourth are also considered to be one vehicle. No additional vehicle fees are collected for bicycles.
  • An additional $2 per day fee is charged for reservations during Memorial Day, Fourth of July and Labor Day weekends
