Overview

Logger Campground sits on beautiful Stampede Reservoir on the Tahoe National Forest, 30 minutes from Truckee, Calif. Visitors enjoy the area for its boating, fishing and abundant hiking and off-road trails.

Natural Features:

The campground is situated on the south side of Stampede Reservoir, which is located on the Little Truckee River, immediately below the mouth of Davies Creek, approximately eight miles above the confluence of the Little Truckee and Truckee Rivers.

A forest of ponderosa pine, Jeffrey pine and fir trees covers the area. Sagebrush dots the forest floor.

Recreation:

Boating, water skiing, swimming and fishing are popular activities on the reservoir. Anglers will find rainbow and brown trout and kokanee salmon. A boat ramp is located on-site.

Many miles of hiking and off-road vehicle trails crisscross the surrounding area. The Commemorative Emigrant Trail stretches more than a mile along the historic Emigrant Trail, and is open to hiking.

Facilities:

This large campground offers over 200 single-, double- and triple-family sites. Picnic tables, campfire rings and grills are provided, along with vault toilets and drinking water.

The Camp Store is located within the campground. A variety of camping and fishing supplies, ice, groceries and souvenirs are available.

Nearby Attractions:

Lake Tahoe is 45 minutes from the campground. Tahoe offers excellent boating, kayaking, fishing, hiking and scenic driving opportunities, as well as dining, shopping and lodging options.
