Fallen Leaf Campground, California
The Fallen Leaf Campground is in South Lake Tahoe but isn’t located on Lake Tahoe. It is, however, less than a mile from Lake Tahoe and near the less-visited Fallen Leaf Lake.
This large campground has 206 campsites, which include 6 yurts that will sleep 6 people. Most sites are shaded by trees but some are more exposed. Walking trails from the campground will get you to the shore of Fallen Leaf Lake in a matter of minutes. Dogs are allowed in the campground and around Fallen Leaf Lake but must be kept on a leash.
A camp store is available if you forgot essentials like camp stove propane and insect repellent.
There are no walk-in sites available; all sites must be reserved. Reservations may be made the day of and can be made six months in advance. The Fallen Leaf Campground is a wonderful option for fall camping before they close for the season.
