Kaspian campground

This campground is even a little more formal than Blackwood. You get cleaner pit toilets, parking on asphalt and a view of Lake Tahoe. But there is a catch, you must pay. These campsite can be reserved so call ahead.

And you must obey…

If that didn’t scare you off, the entrance is right off highway 89 at the entrance to Blackwood Canyon and forest road 03:

Plenty of FS rules, notices and instructions:

Nicer pit toilets as there is a camp host who lives in his RV in the parking lot all summer long.

It’s a bit of a hike to get to some of the campsites. And there not much separating you from your neighbors.

Did I mention a view of Lake Tahoe? It’s a “filtered” view.

There is a trade off between a great lake view and a little more road noise.

Just in case you’re interested, the FS is looking for help in the form of campground host.

The guy working there this summer says he splits his time between Kaspian and the Meeks Bay campground. He travels a lot and doesn’t work the same area two summers in a row. It could be a great retirement gig and a great way to see the country.
