Planning For Tahoe Camping.

I have lived at Lake Tahoe for over twenty years and only camped at the lake about five times. So this year I decided to plan at least two camping trips at a Lake Tahoe campground for next summer.

There is a campground on the south side of Emerald Bay where the road is narrow and winds back and forth.  I have noticed it for years but never took the time to stop and see what the campground has to offer. Well, this year I did stop and walked through the campground. I was so impressed that I am going to make a reservation for next summer.

The Camp Ground has over 70 camp sites along a paved road that runs through a ravine and at the end opens to some wonderful lake view camp sites.  There are trails to access the lake and you can hike as far as to the entrance of Emerald Bay.  They have all the amenities you would expect such as: barbecues, restrooms, food storage lockers and a small amphitheater.  The only thing it does not offer that I was hoping for, is a place to launch a kayak.

If you have camped here please comment below.

The second camping trip I’m planning for next summer is to circumnavigate the lake by kayak with my son, Justin. If you have done this trip and have any advice, please comment below.  I will share my plans and research for my kayak trip around Lake Tahoe in a future Blog.

Here is the link to reserve a camp spot for next summer
