No showers available; toilets occasionally smelly. The sites were huge and beautiful so we ignored any other inconveniences! The small lake is catch and release only. We were looking forward to kayaking in the lake, but after one day the lake had to be closed due to algae. We lucked into a fantastic, free air show next door at the airport. Yeah, we'd go back again! We love airplanes, gliders and airports, so we did not notice the occasional noise. Also, glider port next door. We camped at Alpine Meadows COE in a Motorhome.
Martis Creek Lake Campground is how everyone refers to this park, although the official name is Alpine Meadows. Campground is run by the Army Corps of Engineers. There are no hookups, but each site is spacious, with a fire pit, barbecue, picnic table and iron hook to hang a lantern. Most sites are at least partially shaded by pines. Campground is available only on a first-come, first-served basis; no reservations. Lots of space available during the week; fairly full on the weekend. Ranger hosts Sat. evening presentations in the amphitheater. Location on highway 267 is convenient to town (about 4 miles)and proximate to lots of hiking and biking. Loads of off-leash room for dogs to run and splash in the lake. Our dogs thought they died and went to heaven! About 1 1/2 miles off the highway, so no traffic noise. Sites are described as limited to 30 ft., but we were able to camp here in a 40 ft. motorhome. We camped at Alpine Meadows COE in a Motorhome.
