Welcome yourself to our slice of heaven in the Sierra Foothills and a perfect PIT STOP on your way to Tahoe.

We're a family operated, private campground available for guests year-round! Nestled at 3,000 ft elevation, our property sits right below the regular snow line and can have light to moderate snow during the winter, and then beautiful greenery and wildflowers springing during Feb-May months. Summer months make for a perfect time to dip into the Consumnes River or Sly Park lake. Make sure to bring shade with you! Minutes from wineries, and a hop skip and a jump to Apple Hill, our property makes the perfect place to stay for the weekend, or pit stop on your way to South Lake Tahoe. Pull-in to your graveled spot, complete with a fire pit and solar string lights that come on at dusk and enjoy relaxing in the quiet of the pine trees. We're happy to assist you as much as you need or stay out of your way as much as you desire!

Enjoy hanging around our "Stump" leaning bar, with a complete hospitality shed coming SOON! Firewood available upon request at times of the year when burning is allowed. Our first bundle is complimentary, and each bundle is $6 after that. Propane stoves OK year-round. The closest trail to hike near us is the Consumnes River Gorge, a beautiful day hike where you can watch rock climbers and high liners or jump in for a climb yourself. (Our spot is also a perfect destination for climbers to stay and pull-in for a quiet safe spot, well off the main road). Grab a BBQ dinner at our favorite local spot, The Grizzly Den, book a tasting at our favorite winery, Saluti Cellars (Only a 9 min drive from your campsite), or enjoy Sly Park Recreation Area for a day outing. Lots to enjoy in our neck of the woods!

Camping in Lake Tahoe with wifi provided guide

Straddling the California and Nevada border, North America’s largest and second deepest Alpine lake is also one of its prettiest, surrounded by snow-capped mountains and towering pine forests. With 72 miles of shoreline, beaches and coves, charming towns, miles of hiking trails and bike paths, and 15 area ski resorts, nature lovers and outdoor enthusiasts will find plenty to keep them occupied year-round. There are a wide range of Lake Tahoe camping options for every type of camper—from tent sites and full hookup RV sites with lake views to cabins and yurts in the woods. 

Where to Go

South Shore

The South Shore is home to lively South Lake Tahoe, full of restaurants, shops, lodging options, and casinos across the state line. Options include the opportunity to stay in a tent, RV, or cabin, many of which come complete with picnic tables, fire rings, restrooms, hot showers, and dump stations. Just outside of town, historic Camp Richardson offers tent and RV sites and cabins, along with sports rentals from bikes, kayaks, and paddleboards to snowshoes and cross-country skis. Near the Tallac Historic Site, find the Fallen Leaf Campground with campsites and yurts in the woods just north of Fallen Leaf Lake.

West Shore

The West Shore is home to some of the most scenic Lake Tahoe campgrounds and parks, including Emerald Bay State Park. Camp at Eagle Point Campground, on a promontory overlooking the bay, or spend the night at a boat-in campground right on the shore. D.L. Bliss State Park offers several campgrounds, including one near Lester Beach. Additional public options include the Meeks Bay Campground and the campground at Ed Z’berg Sugar Pine Point State Park. To escape the crowds, head into Desolation Wilderness in Eldorado National Forest.

North Shore

The North Shore stretches from Tahoe City to Incline Village and includes several charming towns in between, with shops, restaurants, and beaches. Just south of Tahoe City, William Kent Campground offers yurts, cabins, and tent sites, while Kaspian Campgrounds offers tent-only campsites. Camp right by the lake at the Tahoe State Recreation Area, or head inland from Lake Tahoe to find camping options along the Truckee River toward Truckee and high up on Mount Rose.

East Shore

The east shore is Tahoe’s least developed area, home to the popular Sand Harbor beach and East Shore trail on the northern end. Halfway down the shore, find camping options near Spooner Lake in Lake Tahoe Nevada State Park, including backcountry cabins and three developed hike-in campgrounds. Further south, Zephyr Cove Resort offers cabins, tent and RV sites, and scenic lake cruises.
