Emigrant group camp at Stampede Reservoir in Tahoe National Forest, Trapper site. Membership Meeting at 5 PM.
This is a spacious group site with a good view of the (very low) lake; the elevation is 6000 ft. The communal area is a pad with several tables and BBQ grills and a big fire pit. The camp host across the road sells firewood.
There is no store or food service nearby, so we are stopping at SaveMart in Truckee to shop. You can buy fried chicken or pizza for your dinner, or a steak to cook in camp.
The usual $10 member (dues paid) / $20 non-member camping fee applies.
