Thousand Trails Lake Minden RV Resort, Nicolaus, California

Our first night back on the road was spent at Thousand Trails Lake Minden RV Resort in Nicolaus, California. When we arrived it was a sunny 82 degrees. Normally I would complain that it was too hot, but a delightful westerly breeze that went right through the motorhome made it just right.

Here’s the lake as seen by this Google Earth view. The resort does not have any pull-thru spaces and since we were only spending one night I really did not want to have to unhook the Bronco. Since we didn’t need power, water or sewer hookups, instead of parking in a regular space, I elected to park in the tenting area. Being more than 1/4 mile away from the other campers made it delightfully peaceful since there were no tenters in this area.

Being so close to the lake and so peaceful, when I went to bed I enjoyed a wonderful crickets and bullfrogs concert playing natures symphony!

Located about 110 northwest of Mary’s home and about 25 miles north of Sacramento, it’s a convenient stopping place for us. Today we’ll continue heading north. Our planned destination is Redding, California.
