Overview

Prosser Family Campground is located on the picturesque Prosser Reservoir within the Tahoe National Forest, 10 minutes from Truckee, Calif. Visitors enjoy the area for its boating, canoeing, fishing and abundant hiking and off-road trails.

Natural Features:

The campground is situated within walking distance of the western shore of the reservoir. A scenic forest of Jeffrey pine and fir trees covers the area, while sagebrush dots the forest floor. Some sites have views of the reservoir and the surrounding mountains can be seen through the trees.

Recreation:

Prosser Reservoir is a popular location for canoeing, swimming and fishing. Power boating is allowed but a 10-mph speed limit is enforced. A boat ramp is located a half-mile away at Prosser Ranch Group Campground.

The surrounding area offers many hiking, biking, horseback riding and off-road vehicle trails.

Facilities:

The campground offers single-family campsites, a few of which are designated for tent camping only. Each site is equipped with a picnic table and campfire ring. Vault toilets and drinking water are provided.

Nearby Attractions:

Boca Reservoir is 30 minutes east of the campground. Boating, water skiing, swimming and fishing are popular activities enjoyed there.

Know Before You Go

In the case of motorcycles, the first two are considered to be one vehicle and the third and fourth are also considered to be one vehicle. No additional vehicle fees are collected for bicycles.
  • An additional $2 per day fee is charged for reservations during Memorial Day, Fourth of July and Labor Day weekends
  • Off-road vehicle use is prohibited within the campground
