Sardine Lake

Sardine Lake offers fine camping in the midst of the Lakes Basin recreation area. The campground features 27 single family sites situated in a lodgepole forest that provides the partial shading. Sardine Lake and Sand Pond are both within easy walking distance. Sardine Lake is a designated fishing lake and as such, swimming is not allowed. Sand Pond is even closer to the campground and is ideal for swimming while the kids will enjoy catching the plentiful polliwogs.
The campground is just off the road to Packer Saddle, a mecca of sorts for mountain bikers riding they myriad of trails to Downieville.

Directions -  The Sierra Buttes are about 1 1/5 hours north of  Lake Tahoe, but well worth the drive. Sardine Lake is just off the Gold Lake Highway.
