Trailer Trip 2021 - Day 4: Virginia City to Camanche Reservoir

Left Virginia City and headed toward Lake Tahoe.

Parked on the main street that runs through Virginia City

Snow in the High Mountains above Virginia City

Got gas on highway 50 before heading over to the lake.  Gas was over a $1.00 cheaper in Nevada, then in California.  We blow through stateline.  Looks pretty much that same as when we were there 20 years or so earlier.  We then headed to Coloma an old mining town where gold was discovered in 1849.  The town of Coloma is on highway 49.  Nice little town with a number of restored buildings. 

Main Street Coloma

We then headed south on 49.  It was a round 4:30 pm, so we were looking for a place to stay for the night.  First spot we checked out was called “Gold Beach” which was a campground, but is now only for locals.  We ending up going to Lake Camanche Reservoir’s North Beach campground.  It was a nice place and only cost $20.50 to spend the night.  Heather made a chicken and pasta dinner.
