There is definitely enough space to set up the tent off of the platform, but we thought, "why not?".
For whatever reason, pitching the tent on the platform changed the whole feel for us.  So much fun!

Those who've experienced camping in Tahoe know what a gem it truly is. Whether you're driving from the coast or the casino, there's something both calming and energizing about Lake Tahoe's turquoise water and stunning peaks. With 72 miles of shoreline, after a morning swim or sunset kayak, you may wonder why you haven't been here sooner or visited more often. Camp near the peaks at a higher elevation for an epic view or fall asleep among the trees closer to the shore of the largest alpine lake in North America. With a good chance of sunshine, it may be difficult to decide on which hike or bike trails to explore without wanting to see them all. Grab s'mores supplies, your tent, and prepare to stand in two states at once. Tahoe is ready for you.

There's a picnic table and fire pit right outside the cabin. Make sure there isn't a fire ban in place while you're there.

The cabin has a great little deck that gets tons of sun. (And at night it makes for a good stargazing platform!)
The big cabin windows get direct sunlight in the afternoon. You wouldn't expect there to be as much light as there is, considering you're in the middle of the woods.
The loft sleeps two people comfortably, and has a great view of the site.
The Pioneer Trail is a 5-minute walk from the cabin. It's 25 mile long trail that weaves through dense forests and ice cold rivers, with sweeping views and complete privacy. On our 10-mile run, we didn't bump into a single person.
Towering trees make the cabin look miniature.
