“Tahoe National Forest Free Camping Fun - Away from Lake Tahoe Crowds”
Reviewed August 12, 2011

I have been exploring California's great National forests for over 30 years and my favorite in N. CA is Tahoe.

Most people are blazing up Lake Tahoe and miss this jewel called Grouse Lakes Basin in the Tahoe Nat'l Forest.

It has it all. Close access to the Bar area, 100's of lakes, streams, rivers and tons of pristine forest trails and roads.

There are may semi developed camping sites that are free on lakes and rivers. Plus with a camp fire permit and respect for the environment (trash, poop, being loud) you can camp almost anywhere there is a road access.

If you want camping away from the crowds with a high Sierra experience, this is one of the best places I recommend.
