Overall Rating

We've only been to Tahoe once and stayed here. It's high up in the mountains which keeps it cool during the day. The campground has recently been refurbished and the staff keep it really clean. My favorite thing about this park is that it borders the Tahoe Rim Trail. It's amazing for mtn biking, hiking and running with great views of the lake and to the great basin. We will definitely be back. It's a quite, peaceful campground with mature trees for shade. There are water spigots and bathrooms, but no hookups. There are a few pull-thru sites which were awesome. Each site has a grill and there is fire wood onsite at the camp hosts. The lake was beautiful and looked like the Caribbean in spots. We drove all around the lake to look at other campgrounds, but they were much busier and more crowded. From here we went to Truckee which was a great little town and stayed at Donner Lake. When they get some rain and snow, we will be back.
