This campground is in a gorgeous and simply stunning locale right on the river that is replete with incredible rapids and a meandering creek with amazing waterfalls! The campsites are pretty private with masses of flora, fauna, and trees in between, unlike so many other campgrounds where everyone is right on top of each other; which I absolutely abhor! There are also the delightful quaking aspens offering their unique tinkling melodies. And the symphonic sounds of the waterfalls and rapids are wondrous. I would like to offer corrections here for the only other review that is posted for this campground. 1. We were a party of 6 with both a tent and a very large RV of 36’ and we had NO trouble at all with maneuvering. There is definitely plenty of room to turn a large rig around without pulling into someone else’s site! 2. Most of the sites are definitely level; some are fairly small and others are amply roomy. 3. ALL of the lower sites have NO noise issues because the sound of the rapids and the waterfalls drown them out with their magnificence! We stayed in sites 14 and 15, which in my opinion are the best two here; 14 is the biggest and has great bathroom access and 15 is a magical little womb that is very private and has its own waterfall! The host was friendly, helpful, and a delight. The café/store was charming and has homemade pies to boot! The only thing I would change is a little more shade in some of the sites.

I hate this campground! It fully embodies ALL the reasons a person would NEVER want to camp! Everyone is packed in right together like sardines in a can. The whole campground is small and although it is at Lake Tahoe, it is NOT at all like being in nature, which is the main reason for wanting to camp in the first place. It is extremely noisy with both road noise, because it is right on the road and people noise, because there are too many people all cramped together and you can hear EVERYTHING, ALL the time; day and night! We would definitely NOT recommend it!
