Reservations for the 2023 Season

"FCFS"= First Come First Served

Begining April 17th at 8am reservations will be open for all stays 2-14 days.  

  • Please note that reservations made between April 10th and April 17th cannot be modified and cancellation will result in forfeiture of 100% of the associated fees.
  • Failure to arrive at the campground within 24 hours of check-in on the first date of a reservation will result in the forfeiture of the reservation and all associated fees. Campground hosts will then be able to rent the site to another party. 

Some of our campgrounds are first come first serve only and do not accommodate reservations and some of our campgrounds are open year-round. 

Fire Restrictions

California continues to experience critically dry conditions affecting lakes and reservoirs throughout the state. Please be aware that this will likely impact the PG&E recreation facilities regarding the use of open flames and fire.

Meadow Lake Campground Meadow Lake Campground
Meadow Lake is a beautiful high elevation lake in the Tahoe National Forest. Activities here include boating (small craft only), swimming or riding the nearby (OHV) trails. There is no garbage service provided, so please make sure that what you pack in, you pack out. There is no water available here either so, pack enough for cooking, dish-washing and drinking. If you have any questions or concerns, a campground host is onsite to assist you. Each site has a table, food locker and fire pit/grill combo.

Meadow Lake is also a popular spot for off-highway vehicle (OHV) enthusiasts as there are nearby trails to access. The Fordyce Jeep Trail and the annual Sierra Trek event in early August. At that time, CA4WDC arranges with Pacific Gas & Electric to restrict water flow in Fordyce Creek to passable levels. Expert spotters and winches are provided at five critical points and no vehicle is ever left behind. The Fordyce Jeep Trail is 11.9 miles long. It begins at 12e45 Pierce OHV Trail and ends at Meadow Lake Forest Road 0843-017. The trail is open to all Off Highway Vehicles (OHV). Recommended for experts only.

An informal boat launch provides access to Meadow Lake.
