What can I say about Camp Richardson? What a wonderful place! It was just unfortunate that we were only there for one night as we were on a road trip from Las Vegas to San Francisco. Camp Richardson is made up of a hotel by the road, a lodge with motel style rooms, and individual cabins. We stayed in the... More

We stayed in the Hudson cabin which is very basic for the two of us but was very comfortable. This is a historic property so the accommodations are not modern. The resort itself is beautiful and on Lake Tahoe. We were able to walk the property and enjoy being next to the lake. We had breakfast both mornings in the... More

..... could not sleep for the whole time (two nights) we were there! The problem was the heating. The main building is fairly old and the heating is by hot water piped under the floor. This produced a continuous "ticking" sound due, I think, to the hot water pipes expanding/contracting while in contact with the timber. Up to 40 "ticks"... More

When you stay at Camp Richardson, you have to realize that it was built a long time ago and renovated. No TV's, the walls are thin, the rooms are small, you have to ask for an iron - it's just the way it is. If you accept it on those terms, it's a very nice place to stay. Great proximity... More

I had the fish and chips. We both thought it was the best we've had. Very good tartar sauce. My husband had steak, which was good. The Rum Runner was good! If you like fish and chips, try it out! Casual place to eat with a nice view.

I found a deal on the web for a two night package for a winter get-away. It included a bottle of champagne, a voucher for dinner at the nearby restaurant, and four breakfast vouchers. The location was beautiful, right by the lake. The room was very comfortable, the dinner was excellent, and the staff was extremely helpful. The vouchers did... More

We camped in the RV section of the Camp Richardson Resort! It was absolutely beautiful and perfect for our week long vacation. Right outside the campground are the horse stables for horseback riding, cute little ice cream parlor and a store where you could also rent bikes for the many bike trail nearby. Only bad side was the restaurant. It... More

I called ahead in planning for our first couple nights in the area before a multi-night backpacking trip to the Desolation Wilderness. The campsite (# 323), was touted by the "reservation taker", as a nice site. It was, and private and close to the showers and bathroom. It was also convenient to the South Lake Tahoe and its restaurants and... More

We love Camp Richardson Hotel. It is close to everything yet you feel like you are away from it all too. Love being able to rent bikes, walk to the lake, eat at the Beacon. We try to go every year. The staff is very helpful, the hotel is very clean.

Don't expect TV's, air-conditioning, telephones or WIFI. There are however a wide array of recreational activities and lodging options including: cabins, an historic hotel, marina/beach duplex, beach side inn, RV park and campgrounds. Also, lakeside dining, a general store as well as an ice-cream parlor. The Mountain Sports Center offers rental as well as hiking maps. My traveling companion and... More
