a little snowy but great for a night - was pretty quiet honestly very little road noise

Report Check-In

Verizon 5G, relatively secluded (though you do great the road noise until fairly late), close to Tahoe and free. What more could you ask for.

Report Check-In

Pretty area just off of Mt. Rose Highway. The road is bumpy with fairly big rocks. Found a very level spot. Nice!

Report Check-In

Good place to stay. There are a few spots where you can place your vehicle (only small ones). The road has big stones, so be careful.

Report Check-In

Other side note probably not a good spot any earlier than April as there will probably be snow!

Report Check-In

Sweet little spot in the national forest. Just take the first section of the road slow and you’ll be fine.

Didn’t realize it was 8k elevation! Still snow covered. I have a 3500 2wd sprinter with super aggressive tires. I made it through ugh the patches of snow. The spot is beautiful and has room for afew vans. Nobody here but me.

Report Check-In

Great spot! The longer description below is precise. We stayed in the spot to the right. It is rocky but we made it in our promaster. You can see the road from camp so it’s more of a “I just need somewhere to stay” kind of spot but works for us! You can hear the road but it’s not annoyingly loud. Quiet at night. From our research, you won’t get anything secluded and scenic within a 20 min drive from Lake Tahoe that is also free.

Easy to find using the coordinates provided. It looks like a simple pullout but the road goes back into a few directions. If you veer back towards the right you will find a nice tree covered area with a fire ring. If you veer back towards the left, the toad gets super rocky and uneven but we walked back there following the All Trails map because it showed trails. There is a huge clearing with a fire ring. It looks like some sort of off toad capable vehicles made it back there. We opted for the clearing back to the right. We are in a Ford Transit 350 XlT and made it fine with dry weather but the road is rough (huge rocks) so you just have to move slow. You can hear some road traffic but it died down and this spot was the only place we found in the area. I’ve added a few photos of the site, the road, and the trails in the area. We discovered that part of the trail we went on across the road to the ski hill actually runs through private property/road.
