“Very handy for West shore restaurants and the lake at Sunnyside”

Reviewed Jul 14, 2018

Overall Rating

Mixed feelings on this campground, it’s a super handy spot for Sunnyside marina and restaurant etc. West Shore market too, is a very nice upscale deli and market. Great beer and wine selections.
Campsites are fairly well spaced, but easy to hear your neighbors conversation too!
The HUGE downside is they allow generators from 7:00am - 10:00pm!😩 the noise will drive you nuts. Based on this alone, I’d not return. Maybe for a quick stopover but if you’re tent camping,AVOID!! and head to DL Bliss.
Campground designers we kinda cruel by deliberately placing large rocks & 4"x4" wood stumps along the roadside and at every campsite. If you have a big trailer and new to backing up and navigating, this campground is like an obstacle course. There are millions of acres of national & state forests in the Sierra, yet state officials who run these parks are determined to keep vehicles and campers "on the paved area" ... good grief, it's a campground folks, let humans use the space, it's ok !!!
Verizon access very spotty at my site, 029. These sites back up to housing ! Very hard to get data but calls ok.
Campground has no showers or wash-stations and one small RV dump area and water fill. If another trailer was using, you’d have to block the road to wait your turn. Very poorly designed. Friendly camp hosts escorted to my site, as we had go against the flow of traffic to back in.

“Dry camping close to everything with a remote feel.”

You are in the forest, with paved bike lanes along Lake Tahoe just across the street, and you are a couple of miles from Tahoe City with all of its attractions. We had no road noise. The sites are well spaced and you have plenty of room.

We stopped here just before the Memorial Day and summer time rush and we had it almost all to ourselves, so it'll have a different feel when full. The campground hosts were very nice and helpful, directing us to a great site.

Some of the turns within the campground might be a little tight for larger rigs. They do have a dump station. With our booster we got three bars of Verizon service. We get the senior rate so for others the rate is $28. There are toilets.
