Today’ plan was to relocate from Portola to Truckee, about 45 minutes away. Our destination was Granite Flat Campground, which upon arrival immediately underwhelmed us. Oddly shaped, tight sites, and located about 30 feet off a major highway, we were not at all impressed with this campground.
Debating our options, Kelly quickly recalled a recent social media post referencing a first-come, first serve campground about 20 minutes drive away.
Having convinced me eschew the existing reservation at Granite Flat, Kelly and I rolled the dice – arriving to Martis Creek Campground at 6:30pm on a Friday. Despite the odds against doing so, we snagged a spot at this sweet campground.
Sometimes the universe throws us a bone.
