Overview

Overview

Meeks Bay Campground is situated between two popular California State Parks, adjacent to the beautiful Lake Tahoe. The crystal clear waters and sandy beaches, just steps away from the campground, provide a recreational escape for outdoor enthusiasts.

Natural Features:

Meeks Bay is in the Lake Tahoe Basin, located on the west shore of Lake Tahoe at a 6,225-foot elevation.

Recreation:

The 22-mile-long Lake Tahoe provides sunbathing, swimming, boating and water skiing. Anglers can look forward to healthy fish populations of kokanee salmon and mackinaw, rainbow and brown trout.

Facilities:

The campground offers multiple single-family campsites for tent and RV camping. Some sites offer sweeping views of the lake. All sites are close together, some even sharing parking spurs, offering limited privacy between sites.

Each site is equipped with tables, campfire rings and grills. Accessible flush toilets and drinking water are provided. Food storage lockers are available at each site in order to keep food packed away from a variety of wildlife.

Nearby Attractions:

A couple of state parks are also on the perimeter of Lake Tahoe, southeast of the campground. South Lake Tahoe is the nearest town, about 10 miles away.
