Easy access off I-80. Very wooded and very clean/tidy. Good pavement throughout the park so there’s no dust problem. Sites are ‘shared type’ that is if you’re rolling with a friend you can camp with your doors facing each other & share the space in between. Most of the sites are fairly level but some need leveling (especially in the 50amp row), where front-to-back level was borderline tricky (sites slope varying degrees). Sites are tight though, with rigs with slides on both sides coming within 1-2 feet of each other. Didn't care for the black/grey hose drain stub up, was stubbed up a good 4-6” and a bit uphill of my rig. 3 bars on Verizon cells, park wifi ranged from decent to no-go. Looked like there was only 1 restroom for the entire campground. The men’s room had 1 toilet, 1 urinal, and 1 shower. Previous review stated they have added a trailer for more restrooms but it wasn't evident to us, and wasn't mentioned at check in, and it’s not on the map. The main restroom was a bit old feeling but was stocked and cleaned. If you don’t have a TV that’s fairly new (year or 2 old) you won’t be able to get but 1 channel on the cable setup. The office does have some converter box deals you can borrow. Noise level: Since it’s close to I-80 you can hear constant freeway traffic while sitting outside your RV, nothing major, but it’s there. Can hear an occasional train horns from the rail yard that is probably no more than a mile away. The campground is also underneath one of the approach/departure tracks for the Truckee airport so you do get a few small jet aircraft (Lear type) as well as other assorted ‘bug smashers’ going overhead. Other than these few things the place is very calm… not much in/out traffic, not many kids running around. Kids: Not much to do for kids here, our teens were very bored. Not within walking distance of anything. Nearby: In 1 direction you’re only within a mile or 2 of old main street. Heads’ up: It can be a chore to find parking there and most of it is metered (pay). In the other direction you have a bit newer part of Truckee with a Safeway (that’s INSANELY busy on the weekends), Starbucks, and various other chain restaurants (Panda, Round Table Pizza, etc). CG is within a 10 min drive to Donner Lake, very pretty area. Tip: If you want to visit the Lake Tahoe I strongly suggest taking Hwy 267 to King’s Beach, it delivered a fast 20-30min drive to the shore. The 89 however, once near/in Tahoe City was brutally gridlocked while we were here. We camped at Coachland RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

The park looks very nice with many large trees, paved roads and many sites well landscaped. But they park you so that your door faces your neighbor's door, which severely hurts privacy. Some sites are very dusty. WiFi is terrible, which isn't unusual for a park, but they keep insisting it's great, which I found irritating. Go to the clubroom and wifi works. They change the password every Tuesday and don't mention it even if you come in on Monday, which also slowed me down for a long time. They tell you 30 amp sites can't run air conditioners. In other words they aren't really 30 amps. In July we really needed air conditioning, despite their assurances we wouldn't need it. We camped at Coachland RV Park in a Motorhome.

Nice RV park near to Truckee and Lake Tahoe. Not far off Interstate 80, but we didn't hear any excessive road noise. All the sites are pull-through but they are what I'd call "North-South", with 2 rigs per site with one pulled in going north and the other south. This means that there is about 6 to 7 feet (or less)between you and your neighbor, with all the hookups in the area between your rigs. We had no problem but if each rig had big pop outs on the left side, it could be interesting. Sites were all paved and level; on the right side of each site was usually a grassy area with picnic tables. There were plenty of trees and shade. While we were there it was very quiet. The staff was friendly and helpful. They just added a trailer/bathroom unit parked in the camping area that has 2 toilets and 2 showers. (This in addition to the men's and women's single toilet and shower facility in the main building of the RV park.) This is a little more convenient to use than walking all the way to the main building. We camped at Coachland RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

While this park was pricy, it provided a very clean and convenient setting with lots of shade. Wi-Fi worked reasonably well. Sites were a bit close together and there were a lot of longer-term guests, but units were attractive and well-kept. Helpful office staff and the grounds keepers kept things neat. Would stay here again, but I surely wish there were discounts available. If there were, we'd probably have stayed longer. We camped at Coachland RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Well, here we are again. We've stayed here before and were not unhappy, but this time not so much. You are in the pines and the place is clean and quiet, but man, they put you right on top of your neighbor. Our slide is 2 feet from the slide next door. Then there is the slowish internet, and by the way they've gone digital with their cable system, and they will loan you a converter, but for a guy who used to run a computer system at his workplace, it made me feel like a techno dinosaur to hook up my old analog tv. And nobody here who knows anything about hooking it up. Anyway, just one night then on with the trip. Missed the end of the SF Giants game, but according to my new smart phone, they won! Just couldn't watch it. We camped at Coachland RV Park in a Motorhome.

Don't believe the poor reviews. We almost didn't come here because of them, but are glad we did. Beautiful setting in the trees, close to Donner Lake and Lake Tahoe. Sites are very tight, but we were fine. Very attentive and nice staff. There are a lot of permanent residents but their places are in general well kept and make for nice walking up and down the blocks. Will stay here again.

Check in was handled ok. Sites are tight and not level in the pull through section. Utilities work fine and are in the proper spot. Main problem we had was the owner/manager who complained about our dog on a leash peeing on a rock at the end of the site. When our dog was walked at night there were dogs running loose in the park while the owners(permanent people there)watched their dogs go anywhere. The park had to do utility work near our site and informed us 10 minutes before it started. The owner/manager knocked on our door to ask us if we knew about the work. I told her no only to have her ask me two more times if I was informed. This work went on 2 days next to our site while at least ten open sites farther away from the noise remained open.This is where we should have been placed when checking in. Overall a nice park with a pretty setting. However, lousy management can ruin a good thing. We camped at Coachland RV Park in a Motorhome.

A pretty nice park, especially for an overnight stay. Nice staff and all amenities worked fine. Very quiet and restful with nice sites in the tall pine trees. Quite a few permanents, but nothing real obnoxious. The rules stated that no "bus conversions, etc.." were allowed, but there were a few "etc.." rigs there. Beat up camper on an old green chevy truck. All in all a good place to spend the night or visit Truckee from. We camped at Coachland RV Park in a Motorhome.

There are lots of trees but narrow sites. RVs are paired within spaces but in opposite directions. It is close to town. A mix of permanent/summer-home park models between conventional RVs. Gracious office staff, very helpful. We camped at Coachland RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

This is a great park...One worthy of visiting over and over again. We tried to make a reservation and couldn't reach anyone at Coachland (before 5:00). When I tried again, they finally answered and I was told they had nothing the next day. The next morning our phone rang and a pleasant voice informed us she had received our message from their answering service and that she definitely had a spot for us. Confusing, but it worked out for us. We will be returning to this beautiful spot. The city of Truckee has an art.farmers market on Thursday evenings, music, wine, and beer. Tahoe City Arts Festival was the next day...tons of things to do in this area. The RV park is clean, easy to get in and out of. You are parked back to back with another unit, but you still have your own grass area/table. Wi-Fi and cable are provided. We camped at Coachland RV Park in a Motorhome.

Another Good Sam discount. Access off I-80 via a roundabout was so easy. Helpful, friendly staff. Great base to explore Lake Tahoe and Donner Lake. When we needed to extend our leave time a couple hours to accommodate the check-in time at our next stop, there was no problem, especially since no one was coming in right behind us. We'd easily go again. We camped at Coachland RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Nice clean park. An older park, sites are narrow for big rigs. Pleasant staff and all sites are in the pine trees. The grounds are clean and kept free of pine needles. There are a large percentage of seasonal/monthly people in the park: so though it looked full when we were here, it was not. The Wi-Fi, though usable, was extremely slow. Nice dog walking area though no place to let them be off leash. We would stay here again. We camped at Coachland RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Easy access off of 80 and no road noise from same. Deep in the pine trees. Spaces are very tight. I had to measure and remeasure to make sure I had room to open the slides. Very quiet. Peaceful but needed a larger yard. Pet walk is too far away. Wi-fi is good, CATV is excellent. We would stay here again. We camped at Coachland RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

We had planned to stay at Donner Memorial State Park, but it wasn't quite open for the season, so we returned for a 2nd visit to Coachland. This is a great park for a dog, as the adjoining forest land is perfect for exercise. Staff very friendly and competent, and they gave us a perfect spot for overnighting (easy in/out). My only complaint is the price--it's definitely monopoly pricing. There are no other nearby commercial parks. Also, since this was our first night on the road, we didn't need to dump, but they lock up the dump station around 4 for the night. Not exactly convenient if one is pulling in for the evening. Just something to be aware of. We camped at Coachland RV Park in a Motorhome.

Arrived on a Sunday afternoon, and the office was closed for the weekend. We had a reservation so they did have a folder for us with the site listed, but told us to put an extra $5 in an envelope to pay for 50amps. This park is mostly full time residents with the overnight/weekly spaces being head-to-toe pull throughs. Sites are long but extremely close. Fortunately the pull throughs were mostly empty, and we had nobody on the driver side, because when we put out the slides it extended into the next space. Passenger side slides extended over small grass area between us and RV next to us. I would never stay here in a busy time of year. There is a CAUTION you should be aware of: once you make a reservation, there are no refunds, even if you try to cancel months ahead of time. We camped at Coachland RV Park in a Motorhome.
