Know Before You Go
  • In accordance with standard industry practices, Tahoe Recreation will be assessing a $5 additional vehicle fee on the 'second vehicle' in each single family campsite, and on the 'third and fourth vehicle' in any double family campsite, provided these vehicles are not joined to the first vehicle by a hitch and towed onto the site. In the case of motorcycles, the first two are considered to be one vehicle and the third and fourth are also considered to be one vehicle. No additional vehicle fees are collected for bicycles.
  • Bears frequent the area; all food must be kept in approved containers
  • Limited turnaround space restricts RVs longer than 24 feet
  • An additional $2 per day fee is charged for reservations during Memorial Day, Fourth of July and Labor Day weekends
  • Off-road vehicle use is prohibited within the campground
