Sierra Buttes Camping?

Is there any camping relatively nearby?  Looking to possibly do a trip Memorial Day weekend.  Stay Friday night in Reno.  Drive to trailhead on Saturday.  Spend Saturday on the trail to the lookout.  Camp nearby, or even a short drive to a camping spot for a moderate hike on Sunday.  Camp Sunday night.  Drive back to Reno Monday mid-morning and on to home in Pittsburg.  Any suggestions?

Looks a nice trip! That seems to be all National Forest lands, so you should be able to camp anywhere reasonable. Where to camp partly depends on which trail you're taking; there are several around there, and least 3 ways to the lookout. If you're looking to car camp rather than backpacking, Sardine Lake Campground is about a five mile drive from the Sierra Buttes trailhead. I was just looking at some of the 360° pictures from the lookout; what a spectacular view! Now I have to go there too, so thanks for the inspiration, Ken! #hikinguphill
