Humboldt-Toiyabe NF | CA Boondocking

Although this IS on the California side, it is in the Reno, NV metro area. We absolutely LOVED this location. We spent a solid two weeks here and even did some of our remodeling while we were there. Getting there is an adventure though and if you aren't comfortable taking your RV on some narrow one way roads up a mountain this might not be for you. But if you are willing, it is an amazing and peaceful site. There are some sites at the top of the hill on your way that are easier to access in a wide open parking area that looked decent too. This area is not accessible when it's snowing - basically in the winter. We stayed here in May after the snow had melted though there were still some patches around.
