Paddle or motor yourself to a lakeside campsite and sleep above the leftovers of sheer Sierra cliffs that descend into the slender bay to create a designated underwater park where scuba exploration is permitted! Boat-in camp features twenty primitive campsites tucked between the shade of trees, just a hop, skip and a jump from the sweet waters of Emerald Bay. Each campsite has a table, storage locker and a fire ring. Chemical toilets can also be found in the campground, but no showers. If water travel isn’t your jam, Boat-in Camp is accessible via good old fashioned foot travel along the scenic Rubicon trail. Whether you get there by foot, boat or a miraculous sprouting of wings, experiencing the elemental simplicity of Boat-in Camp is truly regenerative.

Awesome spot to camp if you can get the reservation. The Rubicon trail is quite close and is among the best hikes in Tahoe.

You can also hike in (approx 1 mile). Beautiful campsite right by the bay.
