This is a beautiful campground with lots of large pine trees. The campground is first come first serve so you literately drive around to find an open site which can be a little challenging given how narrow and winding the roads are. You also could end up with having to camp in an asphalt parking lot if no spaces are open. The lake is great and fun to swim. We really enjoyed the campground, but the sites can be difficult to back in larger trailers. We camped at Thousand Trails Snowflower Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

The check in process is slow and strange. You are not assigned a spot, you locate a spot and tell the office where you are. The road start out asphalt and are then becomes dirt and rock. The dust is horrible and care has to be taken when driving on the roads to not strike tree branches. Backing into a spot was difficult and a spotter was definitely needed. I had to raise my rig 3 inches to come close to level. I was with two other rigs and all our spots were very un level. The sites have water and electric. There are two dump stations when leaving. No charcoal BBQ's or propane fire pits were allowed. My spot was not wide enough to open my awning or park my vehicle without lots of maneuvering. The picnic table we had was falling apart. I will not return. We camped at Thousand Trails Snowflower Resort in a Travel Trailer.

Second Stay at this Thousand Trails Park. Beautiful place but very few places for big rigs in the trees. Large asphalt area for big rigs in the "Cliffs" area with only 30 amp electric and water (dump station and honey wagon). Nice people and great amenities though. You can get satellite in the Cliffs area and cell phones work pretty well. Wifi at Family Center is bad. Lake with boating and fishing on premises and many more near. Will stay again. We camped at Thousand Trails Snowflower Resort in a Motorhome.

40 ft motor home. Had to park in the Cliffs area, basically an asphalt lot with no privacy between other campers. Drove around the campground and can't imagine trying to find a level spot. While the area is scenic and rustic, it's just not suitable for large motor homes. Will not return. We camped at Thousand Trails Snowflower Resort in a Motorhome.

There are no sewer hook-ups and 'honey wagon' is only available on Saturdays. Currently no wood to charcoal fires allowed. Propane stove allowed. Quiet with lake onsite. Great lodge. Boat rentals, playground, and tennis courts. Walking trails. Forest settings with very limited satellite reception. Surprisingly good Verizon cell reception. The roads are mostly dirt, rough, and narrow, some sites are narrow and Unlevel, but we found a large level site with privacy. We camped at Thousand Trails Snowflower Resort in a Motorhome.

Beautiful Setting in the tall pines next to or near a private lake, depending on which campground (there are 5 or 6 different camping areas). The campng pads are as well spaced as any park I have ever been to and are mostly level. As I drive around I don't see anybody with more than two yellow leveling blocks. The bathrooms are sparsely spaced - generally one to each camping area. Ours was quite a hike but was Very clean and fairly new. However, there was only one commode and 2 showers. Fishing in the private lake was great and I saw some two or three pounders come out (none for me though).

There are no sewer hookups or I would have rated this place a 9 or 10. There is also no camp provided WiFi. Bring your hotspot though as I had no trouble getting 3-4 bars on 3G. It was really a slow connection though... not fast enough for video streaming but Pandora and XM streamed just fine. OpenSignal.com reported 775kb download and 885kb upload. The camp store is pathetic. We camped at Thousand Trails Snowflower Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

You must go west on highway 80 to Nyack or east on 80 to Soda Springs to find even rudimentary groceries. Bring your own fishing tackle as the local selections are poor and expensive.

Wooded sites are extremely tight and unlevel. I tried one pull-through and gave up on trying to level. Stayed in a parking lot area they call "the cliffs". The rate reflects Thousand Trail membership. Great care should be taken with the address in any GPS. Strongly suggest you call for directions. I would not stay at this park again.

Older Thousand Trails (TT) park set away in a quiet mountain setting. Pros - Good ATT coverage - Beautiful mountain setting on a lake. Close to I80 yet quiet. Cons - The sites are gravel pads and the internal roads are very rough with a lot of pot holes and the sharp turns are not big rig friendly. -Most sites are set back far from entrance. No full hookup sites. We camped at Thousand Trails Snowflower Resort in a Motorhome.

This park is in need of many repairs. Heavy snowfall this winter destroyed several buildings including the small grocery store / outpost. We were here over July 4th weekend and the pool was still empty and there was no activity which seemed to hint that it would be open at all this summer. There are no full hook ups, so you have little choice but to use their showers, which were in very poor condition. The second day we were there I reported no hot water and a leaking shower head which remained leaking for the 11 days we were there. It caused the floor to remain wet, even in the toilet areas. There was no hot water. Not ice cold, but barely tepid. I got in the habit of showering at high noon when it was at least warm enough outside to tolerate a cool shower. (The evenings get chilly!) It's unfortunate that TT does not seem able (or willing?) to maintain their parks because this particular one is in a beautiful area. On the positive side, the staff were all very friendly. We camped at Thousand Trails Snowflower Resort in a Motorhome.

Stayed here just before the July 4th holiday, snow is mostly all gone and the park seems fully open. We were only there for the night (our first time at this preserve) but it's really beautiful in the trees and the lake is still and would be perfect for a kayak or inflatable. We got one of the few pull-throughs since we had a toad and didn't have to disconnect. There were lots of trailers and tent campers there, so I'd say they were in full operation but we didn't go into the lodge or even look at the pool. I can see staying here for several days just to be in the pines, but right now the mosquitoes are heavy and hungry, I hope it's better when it dries up a bit. Many of the sites are not level and might be hard to set up, or are better suited to smaller rigs but I liked the spacing and we weren't too close to anyone else. We camped at Thousand Trails Snowflower Resort in a Motorhome.

Snowflower had an enormous snowfall over the winter and it damaged all the facilities. Cliff section is the only campground available at the moment (if you can call a large paved and striped parking lot a campground). There is no water, just electrical service. No sewer anywhere in the park. The pool bathrooms are being used, and they have seen better days. Everything needs to be replaced. Very depressing looking. The bathrooms at the lodge smell horrible. The buildings all need to be repaired and re-painted and some sustained major damage from the snow. The maintenance crew is working on snow removal, but we can't see how they can get this place up and running by the end of July. No store or any services are available as of mid-June. All you'll find here is the spectacular beauty of the high Sierras, and really friendly rangers. We camped at Thousand Trails Snowflower Resort in a Motorhome.

Stayed here for two nights as a stopover on the way to Yellowstone from Yosemite. Very outdoorsy. We parked in the Cliffs section. Just a paved lot with spaces wide enough to park out tow dolly next to the RV. WiFi is great in the nearby lodge. It's a nice walk to the store or lake. One of the better TTN places we've been to.

Stayed here on an overnight between Cloverdale and Fernley. Membership Park so don't know day rate. Just guessed. Stayed in the Cliff Area and just backed in, hooked up water and electric, got rooftop satellite and relaxed. Had been raining during day so did not walk off blacktop. Awoke in morning to heavy frost and some ice on ground. Toad was really frosted. Got underway and went to Fernley. Would stay here again. Must be a nice place in warmer weather season.

This is a membership campground for Thousand Trails members and guests. Sites are beautiful. There are several different sections to choose from. Some people prefer the "Cliff" section. It's water and electric, on pavement. Sites are close together. The benefit would be it is close to the club house and the pool. Others prefer the lake section. Get here by Thursday night if you want a lake site for the weekend. They go fast. Then there is the upper section. I don't recommend that to anyone. A rather rough road and confusing signs. Not walking distance to anything, but very rustic. There is another private membership campground within this campground, also called Snowflower. Signs will indicate which sites are theirs, which TTN cannot access. Security is great, Rangers friendly, rental cabins and trailers are available, sites have lots of trees. Paddle boat, kayak and row boat rentals. Fishing. Swim beach. Very clean pool, restrooms and laundry areas. Mosquitoes at dawn and dusk, but ok the rest of the day. Just beautiful. You must be a member or be a guest of a member. I believe guest rates are around $35. We camped at Thousand Trails Snowflower Resort in a Motorhome.
