Cottonwood Creek Campground
Cottonwood Creek Campground is along Highway 89 in the Tahoe National Forest, 4 miles south of Sierraville. This well-organized campground makes a good overnight stopping place. The nearby highway is lightly traveled and distant enough from most campsites so as not to be a distraction.
The 48 campsites at Cottonwood Creek Campground all accommodate RVs, trailers, and tents. Reservations are accepted.
Jeffrey pines and red and white fir spread shade over the campground. Cottonwood Creek Botanical Trail and Overlook Trail both begin at Cottonwood Creek Campground. Jackson Meadows Reservoir is 20 miles away.
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 website when you make your reservation to be sure your vehicle will fit your campsite.
In order to prevent the spread of invasive insects, purchase firewood locally.
Designated Accessible sites are usually reserved for people with disabilities who have a vehicle displaying an accessible parking placard or license plate.
