Lake Lane Waterfront Camping

8 sites · RVs1 acre · Nevada City, CA
Our lake property is situated directly adjacent to Scott's Flat Reservoir without any other properties between you and the lake! Enjoy the surrounding fir, cedar, and madrone trees as you watch the sunset over the water! Our property consists of 2 separate lots. The upper lot includes water, power, sewer hookups, WiFi and off street parking. The lower lot (closest to the water) does not have any hookups but has plenty of room for tent campsites. PREMIUM RV: "Lakeview Terrace": This RV Site is the larger of the 2 RV Sites. It offers a lot more open space for camp set up (table, chairs, cooking, etc.) This is the property where we keep our family's 5th wheel year round (as seen in some pictures, although we make it policy NOT to visit when RV Site #2 is booked in order to protect your privacy). STANDARD RV: "Starling's Nest": This is the smaller of the 2 RV Sites. The entire space is approximately 60'x15'. Depending on the size of your RV/Camper there is room enough to accommodate additional campsite set up. Full hookups (city water, electrical outlet (110), and sewer connection) are available beside the gravel parking pad and WiFi is provided. The lake view is filtered because of the many trees but there is easy access to the water via trails from the property or along Lake Lane. NOTE: Per Hipcamp restrictions this site is only available as an "add on" to the Premium RV: "Lakeview Terrace" to accommodate multi-family camping. LAKESIDE TENT CAMPSITES: "Halcyon Cove" consists of 3 separate tent campsites and guests are able to set up camp wherever they like on a first come basis. There is over 1/2 acre of land adjacent to the lakeshore. City water is provided but no power or sewer hookups at this time. NOTE: Per Hipcamp restrictions these sites are only available as an "add on" to the Premium RV: "Lakeview Terrace" to accommodate multi-family camping. Come see one of the most beautiful waterfront lake spots in the Sierras.

Beach camping in Lake Tahoe guide

Overview

Straddling California and Nevada, Lake Tahoe is a beach lover's paradise, with more than 40 beaches around its 72-mile shoreline, and no matter what shore you're on, you'll find plenty of Lake Tahoe beach camping options, spanning tent sites, RV sites, yurts, and cabins. On the North and West shores, several public Lake Tahoe campgrounds offer tent camping and RV campsites near Tahoe City—try Sugar Pine Point State Park or D.L. Bliss State Park. Nearby, Emerald Bay State Park features epic views, access to waterfalls, and a boat-in campground on the water. Meanwhile, campgrounds near South Lake Tahoe, like Camp Richardson, offer even more amenities, including wifi, RV hookups, and cabins within walking distance to sandy beaches. On the Nevada side of the lake, Nevada Beach Campground and Zephyr Cove Resort are your best bets. Although Lake Tahoe is a year-round destination, with ski resorts and snow play in winter, lakeside beach camping spots are more limited then, when private lakeside cabins are the best option.
