PrideWeekend Campout- 3 nights, June 23-26, 2022


Our first campout since COVID-19 will take us to Bear River Reservoir on Rt. 88 30 miles west of Carson Pass.  

Situated at 6,000 feet, its proximity to water and the mixed pine setting in the fresh Sierra Nevada air, make Bear River Group Campground an excellent group retreat destination. 

Rainbow Sierrans camping trips often feature a potluck dinner one evening, and camaraderie around the RS  propane fire pits, with options for Follies (skits and home-grown entertainment), game night, sing-alongs and/or a dance party depending on the participants interest. 

Water sports near camp include fishing, kayaking, canoeing, swimming and picnicking on the shores.

Hikes:  There are spectacular hikes into the High Sierra from a number of trailheads along 88 as well as short, easy hikes near camp.

We hope you will join us for what promises to be a wonderful extended weekend in a magical location. 

Registration:  The price for registration will be $60 and is only open to members. 

In order to register, you will need to complete a medical form. Get a head start, fill it out now, download it, and rename it with last name, first name.  Then you can simply upload it as directed during registration.

  • Nearby amenitiesA nearby resort rents fishing boats, kayaks, canoes, or paddle boats. and the restaurant, lounge, and hot showers provide creature comforts.
  • Registration is limited to 25 participants, first come, first served. Each participant must register separately, and you must be a Rainbow Sierrans member to register: non-members must join the club in order to register. The cost of the trip is $60/person.
