Camp around Lake Tahoe in remote forest hideaways or set up camp lakeside for quick access to the water. Car camping is especially popular here. Hike or mountain bike, do a bit of fishing or simply find a shady spot under the pines to relax and enjoy nature at its best. If you'd rather travel by water, you can paddle across to the waterfront boat-in campground in Emerald Bay, also accessible by hiking along the scenic Rubicon trail. Although the shores of Lake Tahoe have no shortage of public land perfect for tent or RV camping, the area can also be explored by booking a stay at a private tipi, ranch, or cabin, where you're guaranteed a memorable trip. When planning your trip, check the Forest Service website for seasonal closures, fire alerts and permits. In the Lake Tahoe Basin area, Forest Service campgrounds generally open from mid-May through mid-October, while Tahoe Valley and Zephyr Cove open year round. As a general tip, don't rely on GPS apps to find your way to these more remote campgrounds. Grab a paper map and follow directions carefully so you can arrive in plenty of time to enjoy nature's outdoor playground.
