Camping Lake Tahoe was borne out of my own frustrations during a road trip elsewhere in California.
There was really no good one directory where you could find information on all campsites. The problems I found with the other sources:
- Some are incomplete, showing drive-in sites only, or just listing Forest Service sites, for example.
- They are incorrect, often crowdsourced or taking information from some other source that has never been verified. Sometimes coordinates are miles off.
- Many aren’t mobile-friendly, and almost impossible to use on a smartphone.
There was also no comprehensive Lake Tahoe camping directory either – until now. We aim to include every campground in the Lake Tahoe basin – tent camping, RV parks, and backcountry campsites.
CampingLakeTahoe.com is based in South Lake Tahoe and verifies all of the information on here to the best of our ability. We actually visit these Lake Tahoe campgrounds instead of relying on phone calls and Google Satellite views.
The best part about this website is that it’s free – there are no subscription plans or memberships, so long as you’re willing to put up with a few ads to cover our operating costs.
Thank you for visiting and happy camping. If you have any corrections or suggestions, please let us know!
