We coordinated 65 campers (adults and kids- friends) and took over 13 sites. The campground is clean and well managed with great views of either Lake Tahoe or Emerald Bay. It could use more showers but we made it work, especially if you don't take a shower during prime times (before 9 am and after 5 pm). Campers can be... More

There is 1/2 mile... More

I walked the whole campground to see what else was there, and I can say... More

My family had a great time at Emerald Bay Campground. We stayed there for 5 days in June 2007. This campground is not impacted by the Angora wildfire, and it's a beautiful place. The campsites were well maintained, those who prefer a little more privacy can choose the Upper Eagle Point campground, sites 1-34. Those who want to be closer... More
