Mount Rose Campground

Sierra Nevada Airstreams - Destinations - photo gallery

Getting to 9000 feet is a good test for your rig. If you take the Mount Rose Highway (Nevada 431) up the grade from U.S. 395 just south of Reno, you will spend about twenty miles climbing 5000 feet on a steep road with many 20 mph curves. The approach from Incline Village at Lake Tahoe is a bit easier but still has a grade to climb.

The camp is adjacent to a meadows that is very popular for cross country skiing in the winter and as an access to several hiking trails in summer.

This is an old camp and not designed for large vehicles. Most sites only have about twenty feet of parking drive available.. Facilities are limited.
