“Three months of camp life on Lake Tahoe would restore an Egyptian mummy to his pristine vigor

and give him an appetite like an alligator.”   – Mark Twain

That’s what we are after on this FOP.


Thursday and Friday Nights



We will camp at the Upper Blue Lake Damsite on Friday and Saturday night.



The Blue Lakes (elevation 8100 ft.) are located 12 miles south of Highway 88 in Hope Valley. The lakes serve as water storage for downstream hydroelectric plants operated by Pacific Gas and Electric Company.

The campground manager will reopen the campground on the 13th to host our group. For the most privacy, we will settle at the Upper Blue Lake Damsite Campground.

To manage the cost, we need to park three vehicles per site. They are large sites, so no worries. Costs are higher on this trip mainly due to camp fees. Dogs are a buck extra per night, seriously. Tahoe isn’t the middle of nowhere like we usually get to enjoy—that said, we’ll be based in the higher Sierras with lots of blue water, so it’s still a deal.

Saturday Night  (Tentative!)

Come up and party in the Fort Sage Mountains, northeast of Doyle. More info is on the way.
