Plasse's is a summer resort in the old-fashioned sense: Founded in 1853, it's one of the oldest private campgrounds in the nation.

Tent sites, RV sites and sites for horse campers are augmented with a restaurant, general store, dumping station, propane station, laundromat, showers, horseshoe pits, volleyball courts, playground video arcade, and canoe and kayak rentals.

The resort is situated on Silver Lake, one of several popular fishing and boating lakes along the Highway 88 corridor south of Lake Tahoe and east of Jackson. Plasse's opens when snowmelt permits and closes in mid-September.

At most state and national parks, dogs are confined to paved paths, fire roads and picnic areas. If those rules don’t fit your free-roaming style, take heart: There are plenty of other places to camp and hike with your best four-legged friend. Here are two campground-rich areas in Northern California that get the DogTrekker paw of approval. more »
