Lake Tahoe Camping

    Lake Tahoe, the largest alpine lake in North America, is a must-experience destination for travelers from around the world. Its crystal-clear water and vast blue expanse have inspired countless visitors, including Mark Twain, who remarked that “three months of camp life at Lake Tahoe will restore an Egyptian mummy to its pristine vigor.”

    While we won’t necessarily guarantee the accuracy of that statement, we will say that you’d be hard-pressed to find a more magical place to set up camp.

    Best North Lake Tahoe Camping Spots

    Pitch a tent and hunker down at one of the many beautiful north Lake Tahoe camping spots, including Lake Forest Campground, Tahoe State Recreation Area Campground and William Kent Campground. Located just a short walk away from Lake Forest Beach, Lake Forest Campground is a great place to stay if you’re dreaming of sunbathing on the beach by day and stargazing by night. Reservations for this site are first come first served. Tahoe State Recreation Area Campground is located right on the north shore of the lake. This Lake Tahoe campground is next to a bike path that will take you into town for some leisurely shopping. It is recommended to camp here in a tent, although it can accommodate small RVs. Stay at William Kent Campground and let the tall cedar, fir and pine trees engulf you in their natural beauty. William Kent Campground’s amenities include flush toilets, RV sites, grills, fire pits and more. Whether you’re looking for close beach access, a place to sleep at night while you explore by day, an opportunity to immerse yourself in the forest or close access to Lake Tahoe fishing spots, camping in Lake Tahoe will leave you refreshed when you’re ready to go back to your daily routine.
