The Bayview Campground is on Emerald Bay Road and across from Inspiration Point.  This tent campground has 12 shaded walk-in only sites (no reservations) with a maximum vehicle length of 20′.

The Bayview Campground is at the heavily-used Bayview Trailhead where you can launch hikes to Cascade Falls, Velma Lakes, Eagle Falls, Granite Lake, Maggies Peaks, and so on.

The only facilities at this campground are vault toilets and running water dependent on snowpack.

Bayview Campground is 15 minutes from South Lake Tahoe.
