Lake Tahoe Campgrounds

By Tahoe Staff | Thursday, January 14, 2016

Lake Tahoe campgrounds abound, and amenities range from simple sites with few frills to ones with lots of creature comforts.

Come see how the other half lived on Lake Tahoe by visiting the museum at the historic Hellman-Ehrman mansion in Sugar Pine Point State Park. The mansion was a vacation spot for wealthy families for a half-century. The park offers 2 miles of lake frontage and forest with access to hiking and biking trails. The park is located 10 miles west of Tahoe City on Highway 89 and features 175 sites, flush toilets and showers. Fees are $15-25/ night depending on the season. Reserve at

Home to the precariously placed Balancing Rock, D.L. Bliss State park is a favorite choice for those looking for a combination of campground amenities and Lake Tahoe shore access. The park offers a large beach filled with rocky coves that are ready to explore. A 5-mile trail originating in the park to Emerald Bay makes for a nice day hike. The park is located off of Highway 89, 17 miles south of Tahoe City and 2 miles north of Emerald Bay. 168 campsites and flush toilets are available. Fees range from $20–$35/night depending on site location and season. Reservations can be made at
