Water was warm and showers had good water pressure. Our site was nicely paved. Other campers seemed to be mostly quiet and there were minimal s... more

My family and I have camped here many times over the last decade. It's well maintained, but it is very busy during the peak season. You're not stacked on top of each other like a lot of the campgrounds around the Lake Tahoe area. This is one of the better ones.

we stayed here just one night after four nights and a long drive from yosemite. We wish we could have spent more time here as it had so much to offer, however they were booked solid the next day.
