Silver Creek Campground
Silver Creek Campground is situated along the bank of the Truckee River, 7 miles north of Tahoe City and Lake Tahoe. Some sites are shaded by conifers, others are out in the open. Silver Creek Campground is popular with anglers who enjoy fly-fishing the famous Truckee River and with rafters who take advantage of the usually easy current along the valley during the summer. Others find Silver Creek a convenient alternative to Tahoe campgrounds.
Of the 28 sites in Silver Creek Campground, 7 are walk-in, tent-only sites. Another 12 are designated tent-only. The remaining campsites can accommodate tents, RVs, or trailers. Most tent sites are close to the river and farthest from the highway. Those sites do mean that campers have to carry their gear a short distance to their site. The majority of the campsites are available for reservations, but a few are kept for first-come, first-served visitors. With Silver Creek Campground's proximity to Highway 89, traffic noise is a consideration.

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.
