Tucked inside the terrific Tahoe National Forest, on the northwest shore of the stunning Sugar Pine Reservoir, you'll find Giant Gap campground ready and waiting to give you an unforgettable camping retreat. This picture-perfect place is surrounded by a wondrous woodland of ponderosa and cedar pine trees, and its waterfront location ensures that the views continue to take your breath away with every step!
While staying at this captivating campground, you and your four-legged favorite will have everything you need and more thanks to the awesome amenities available at Giant Gap. Whether you're looking forward to cooking up a storm on the grills, using the firewood vendor to stock up for a song under the stars around your personal campfire, or a fabulous family feast on the shaded picnic tables -- you'll leave Giant Gap Campground with some truly magical memories.
If you've got a hike-loving hound at the end of that leash, then you'd be barking mad not to try out the tremendous trails near this spectacular site. There's plenty of drinkable water available at the campground, so you won't have to worry about keeping your hound hydrated. The Joshua M. Hardt Memorial/Sugar Pine Trail will take you and your magnificent mutt on a 3.5-mile adventure around Sugar Pine Reservoir and if you need to cool down afterwards, why not bring your precious pooch in for a dip? As long as they stay under your control at all times and you remember the doggy bags, your pup can make waves in any parts of the reservoir that aren't designated swimming spots.
Sugar Pine is an awesome spot to take your boat out on the water, to spend an afternoon fishing, or to challenge your friends and family to a canoe race! If you need even more space for splashing, you can head to the North Fork of the American River for more exciting excursions on the water! Giant Gap is an unmissable spot if you're hoping to spend your summer in an idyllic location that's just as relaxing as it is fun!
