  • description:
    The Sierra Valley is where Gold Country Highway 49 meets Tahoe Highway 89. Here sits an alpine valley in the Northern Sierra, and this may be the secluded spot you are seeking for a private retreat. There is one small hotel in town and a rustic hot springs resort on the outskirts of the valley. Campbell Hot Springs as seen on some older maps is now called Sierra Hot Springs.
