Granite Flat Campground
Granite Flat Campground is located along the Truckee River, just 2 miles south of Truckee and 11 miles north of Lake Tahoe. While some sites have shade from mature conifers, others are in the open. Some sites overlook the Truckee River.
Of the 75 campsites at Granite Flat, 7 are walk-in, tent-only sites. They are located separately at the south end of the campground along the river. Most campsites are available for reservations, but a few are kept for first-come, first-served visitors. Two campsites are doubles. A lack of bear-proof food lockers is a problem. Store your food in your car. With the campground's proximity to Highway 89, traffic noise is a consideration.
General Camping Information
Opening and closing dates of campgrounds are only estimates, usually dependent on snow conditions. Not all campsites can accommodate trailers or RVs of all lengths. Check carefully on the reservation website when you make your reservation to be sure your vehicle will fit your campsite.
In order to prevent the spread of invasive insects, firewood from outside the area is not permitted.
Designated Accessible sites are usually reserved for people with disabilities who have a vehicle displaying an accessible parking placard or license plate.
