“Nice site with good access to the lake”

Reviewed Aug 16, 2017

Overall Rating

We stayed with a group that had two group sites, which really were groupings of single sites; the other single sites were similar in nature. The site was clean, and well-maintained. There was shared water every five or so sites, but nothing per-site. Our spot was within a half-mile walk on well-maintained trails to the lake. The lake had rentals of boats, jet-skis, paddle boards, and other assorted water fun.

Bears are a real concern, and the park was clearly very strict in enforcing the use of bear boxes for coolers and food. Our campsites were visited every night, so definitely don't slack off or be prepared for damage and/or the $1000 (!) fine for mismanaging food. The sign at the front check-in said they'd issued nine such citations the week we were there.

Traffic getting to Sugar Pine can be tough, so plan accordingly. Otherwise, it's easy to get in and out of.

“Lovely, spacious and clean campground in the pines. ”

Reviewed Jun 17, 2015

Overall Rating

Large campground with wide paved roads on the west shore of Lake Tahoe. The campground had dump station, flush toilets, showers, paved pads, bbq pit and standing grill, table and water spigots through out the campground. Lots of trailsheads paved and dirt in the campground and bike trails that seem to run all along the lake. Dogs are allowed in campgrounds and some trails in campground and on paved bike trails.

Though large, the sites felt spacious and offered lots of room to move. There was lots of room in the forest for the kids and dog to play just behind our dining room window without bothering nearby campers. The campground was very clean and felt new. The downside was the showers were a bit of a hike and sometimes there was a wait for bathrooms depending on the time of day. CA is also in a drought so the showers were closed a few days a week. Small inconveniences for a lovely camping experience.
