Created in 1972 , Tahoe Timber Trails is a non-profit 501c7 private, member owned, gated camping community located in the Tahoe National Forest near historical Hobart Mills.  The 159 acre park is nestled in the Tahoe National Forest 7 miles north of downtown Truckee, California.  The park has 553 individual campsites and sits at an elevation ranging from 6000-6500 feet.  Our office is open year-round while the camping season runs from May 15th through October 31st.

Some of our amenities include:

-Our entrance is gated, and only those with an auto recognition chip, or their registered guests are permitted entry.
