Rent A Tent - gives you the option to rent a tent (sleep 4) at Tamarack Lodge at Bear Valley. Tucked away in the willow bushes and pine trees with a season steam meandering along the front of the lodge parking area. Campfire circle and table and chairs are provided.  Easy access from our parking area. Inside flush toilets off the deck of the main lodge.  Communal kitchen open for those who wish to cook just like at home - it is fully equipped and is $10 per day use fee. Hot showers upstairs in the main lodge - $5.00 use donation. Great for a small family, couple and a pet or just for yourself! Mid June to Mid October is Rent A Tent season.  

We are close to Lake Alpine, Union, Utica and Spicer Reservoirs.    Bear Valley Village is only 3 miles away with a simple restaurant(s) and camp grocery store ( 10 am to 6 pm).  Lake Alpine Lodge also has a camp store 8 am to 6 pm and restaurant and bar.  Otherwise there is a large grocery store in the town of Arnold 22 miles down the highway (west) of Tamarack.  

Please note we have 3 types of tents, (sleeps 2 , sleeps 4, sleeps 6) that get replaced every other summer so sometime the picture does not look exactly like the tent you may rent, but we assure you it will be comfortable.  Just remember to bring your own sleeping pads and bags, towels, flash light and other camping gear that you may need, we provided the tent, and a great place to stay!
