A little winter never stopped a Californian from camping! We ran across several campgrounds and RV parks at various elevations in the Sierra that stay open throughout the winter in an effort to accomodate cross-country skiers, snowshoers, snowboarders and snowmobile enthusiasts.
Mammoth Mountain RV Park: Campsites offered include 30a or 50a electrical service and cable TV hookups. The park also features an indoor swimming pool and spa, showers and a laundry facility.
Cisco Grove Campground and RV Park in Soda Springs: Located near Donner Pass, this park not only stays open through the winter, but rents snowmobiles and grooms 26 miles of snowmobile trails. The park also has a snow play area and snow tubing hill. The park currently has seven RV sites available, three with electricity and water and four with water, power and sewer connections. Additional campsites can be plowed depending on demand. The park also offers six motel rooms.
Coachland RV Park in Truckee: This park provides water, sewer and cable TV service as well as 30 and 50 amp electrical hookups and wireless Internet or Wi-Fi service.
Lake of the Springs RV Resort in Oregon House: This Equity LifeStyle Properties park sits on a 950-acre property in the western foothills of the Sierra.
Pioneer RV Park in Quincy: This 62-site park, which is about 10 miles from a popular snowmobile area, is open throughout the winter.
Snowflower RV in Emigrant Gap: This Equity LifeStyle Properties park is located off I-80 at Exit 160.
Tahoe Valley Campground in South Lake Tahoe: This Equity LifeStyle Properties park has about 40 sites that are kept open during the winter months. Campsite amenities include water, sewer, 30 and 50 amp electrical hookups and wireless Internet or Wi-Fi service.
Yosemite Pines RV Resort & Family Lodging in Groveland: This park, located near one of the western entrances to Yosemite National Park, features park model cabins and yurts in addition to RV sites. “During the holidays we stay fairly busy,” said park manager Mary Betram. She said reservations are recommended for cabins and yurts, but RV sites are often available during the winter months.
