Yuba Pass Campground Tahoe National Forest California

Yuba Pass Overview

Yuba Pass 009

Yuba Pass campground has 20 campsites and is located very close to Sardine Lake just off Highway 49 in the North Yuba River Area. It is generally open early May to mid October (weather permitting). Reservations are taken from mid-June through mid-September. Only a handful of sites would accommodate very large rigs. Old growth red fir trees also provide nice shade to most campsites.

The campground has vault toilets, but no potable water. Each campsite also has a table, fire ring and grate.

Yuba Pass – Area Recreation

Bird watching is excellent here, with the area attracting a variety of feathered creatures. A few of the bird species that visit the area include bald eagles, osprey, hawks and geese. You may also see hermit warblers and northern pygmy-owls! Other outdoor recreation includes fishing, hiking, backpacking, hunting, mountain biking and picnicking.

Other campgrounds in the area include Chapman Creek, Lakes Basin, Salmon Creek, Sardine Lake and Wild Plum.

      You are correct – Yuba Pass does not have any potable water at this time. We made the correction to our campground information. Thank you!

  3. I see your seasons are open to july to September 6, are your campgrounds still open after that date.
