Scotts Lake Tahoe RV Boondocking

I spent a couple of days at the Scott’s Lake campground, which is free. My 2004 Fleetwood Fiesta 26Q had trouble getting over Luther Pass, revving at 4,000 rpm, going 30 mph. Also, very poor wifi and cell reception, and the overcast skies were slowing down my solar panel.

Go west on HWY 50 from S. Lake Tahoe, then south on SR 89 from the town of Meyers. As you begin to make the climb up Luther Pass on SR 89, you’ll come to a significant turn in the road that veers off to the left. This an entrance to the Big Meadow campground to the left. The entrance to the campground can be easy to miss, it’s slightly recessed, and just after the bend in the road. You know you’ve driven too far if you reach the flat stretch of highway on top of Luther Pass. You’ll need to turn around and try again. Once you reach the entrance to Big Meadow campground, make a quick left turn and park your vehicle in the free parking area.
