D.L. Bliss and Emerald Bay State Parks don't have many sites that accommodate trailers, even smaller ones. Nevada Shores was full, so I "settled" for Campground by the Lake". I'm glad I did. Most of the sites are quite large and well maintained. No firewood was available, which was strange, but there's a liquor store across the str... more

Look, I love Tahoe and I really love seeing the lake while I camp... But it can't be justified by paying $56 bucks a night for a RV site with water and electric. The price of this joint has obviously gone up, a bunch. These prices should include a free back rub for all those who had to drive a full day to get to the campsite. The showe... more

Perfect location across form the lovely lake Tahoe and just blocks away from downtown. The sites are decent for an RV park but gravel/dirt instead of paved, the staff is friendly and the people in the park are good hearted. BUT the facilities are dated. The showers need a major makeover. Also, Verizon signal is awful (this was true all... more

First the good; This is a great location in South Lake Tahoe. Quick access to everything. Nice view of the lake. Lots of families (we have kids). Rates weren’t too bad with our AAA discount. Now the not so great: We have a travel trailer and weren’t able to get a site with hookups even though I saw several tent campers occupying ... more

We have stayed here for years and almost always with a group of friends. It never disappoints. Most sites are fairly large and level and the location is great for biking, walking, swimming (at the lake or pool next door), just enjoying all that Tahoe has to offer. This was our first time in D loop and at the beginning of the loop meant... more

This was our second time staying at this campsite. It's close to the road but is surprisingly quiet. We love the proximity to Heavenly, historic sites and, of course, the lake (right across the street!) our site might be the best in the entire campground. It's huge with hookups, although the hookups are on the other side. If you're l... more

We had heard rumors of the elusive "Chad", a rare breed of visitor to Lake Tahoe's shores. These tanned, expensive sunglasses wearing 20-somethings apparently arrive on the scene, revving their engines up and down the main drags, mucking up the best powder days and overwhelming the skate parks and bars of the towns in the vicinity with... more
