CTC proposes Tahoe Pines Campground restoration

The California Tahoe Conservancy is proposing to restore the Upper Truckee River’s floodplain and riparian habitat at the former Tahoe Pines Campground in Meyers.

As part of the project, the CTC would provide the 8.5-acre site with picnic tables, benches, hiking trails and other day-use amenities.

Patrick Wright, executive director of the CTC, in a press statement said the campground took an “environmental beating” from heavy vehicle use and was often flooded because of its location.

“We hope to create new, more sustainable opportunities for people to enjoy the area,” Wright said.

The CTC is circulating a draft environmental document for the project. Public comments are due by June 13.
