Great place! Super clean fully enclosed bathrooms w/ showers, pressure-washed daily. Bring quarters - $1 for 3 min of hot showering. 5 min walk or less from your site to Fallen Leaf Lake, bring your floats/boards/kayaks.

This is THE place to camp if you're visiting Lake Tahoe. That is if you can do without electricity & cable tv. Reservation only.
Beautiful campground. All sites seemed good. We had site 75, which is on the outside loop by the trailhead. There is a parking lot next to the site, but we had an entertaining time watching people.
The outside sites are the best. If I remember right, sites 52 & 64 have good views of the river. I would try for them if we ever get to come back.
The inside sites are tucked into the woods. Most are reasonably private. There is no view of Fallen Leaf Lake from any of the campsites.
Bears are active. We put a bag of sweet smelling candy in the bear box & guess who was trying to get at it? Be bear aware!

Fun campground for hanging out with friends. Not much privacy but enough wooded area for the kids to run through. Bring your bike! Trails connect to bike trail system from the campground. Right on 89 are some great places for sandwiches, coffee, etc...

Visit nearby Camp Richardson if you're looking for some civilization. There's a general store, beach w/ rentals, bike rental, bar for a drink, or a giant ice cream cone. It's about a 15 min walk, 5 min bike ride, or 5 min drive.

Was at site 123. Good site, near bathrooms but not close to other people. Wish there were more trees on the East side as the sun was blinding in the morning. If I were to go again I would stay around site 86, on the bottom of the loop. Close to the lake and bathrooms, trees on east and west, with a big open prairie nearby.
