Tahoe National Forest’s Sardine Lookout available for 2017 season in Sierraville
SIERRAVILLE — The U.S. Forest Service is providing the recently restored Sardine Lookout on the Sierraville Ranger District of the Tahoe National Forest for public use at no charge from July 14 to Oct. 30.
The limit per reservation is two nights and one reservation per household during the 2017 season. Reservations can be made up to 30 days in advance. It remains available on a temporary basis to provide a quality recreation experience and to help control vandalism issues.
Sardine Lookout is the second lookout available for overnight occupancy on the Sierraville Ranger District. The popular Calpine Lookout is also available on a fee rental basis and reservations can be made through http://www.Recreation.gov.
The Forest Service provides the opportunities to rent these historic structures under the Federal Lands Recreation Enhancement Act. All new fee proposals are reviewed by a regional citizen’s advisory committee, the California Recreation Resource Advisory Committee. Members represent a broad array of recreation interest groups and help to ensure public issues and concerns about recreation fees are addressed. The Sardine Lookout is expected to be operational as a rental under the Federal Lands Recreation Enhancement Act Program in the spring of 2018.
Access to the lookout requires travel on at least nine miles of rough dirt roads, so high clearance vehicles are strongly recommended.
To make a reservation for the Sardine Lookout, please call the Sierraville Ranger District at 530-994-3401 during business hours 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Reservations can be made 30 days in advance of the desired date (example: reservations for Aug. 15 can be made on July 15).
