Lakeside and Mountaintop Camping in Tahoe National Forest

Nestled within Tahoe National Forest, high in California’s Sierra Nevadas, is a resort of unique splendor. Thousand Trails Snowflower RV Campground’s mountains and valleys, forests and trails evoke a feeling of wonder and joy to all who experience them. Many resorts offer a place to set camp, near destinations of natural beauty and recreation. At Snowflower you can, for a time, make your home at a lakeside, in the middle of a forest scape, or even at the very edge of a cliff face, high above Six Mile Valley! When you stay at Snowflower, you are staying at a resort that is itself as magnificent as a National Park or Forest!

We offer cabins with full kitchens, yurts for glamping, and beautiful sites with hook-ups for RVs and tents. Enjoy our magnificent Alpine Lodge, swimming pool, playgrounds and sports courts. Our Recreation Department provides opportunities to enjoy fishing, kayaking, sports, games, nature hikes, arts and crafts, and direct you to adjacent lands for mountain biking and ATV enjoyment.

If you feel the desire to balance your stay at Snowflower RV Campground with the best culture that the Sierras has to offer, there is nearby historic Truckee: from its fantastic restaurants, cafes, boutiques, and galleries, to its top-notch discount stores. And if you want even more, less than 20 minutes from Truckee, is the shore of Lake Tahoe itself.

After one visit with Snowflower RV Campground, you’ll be looking forward to your next!
