Our family of four had a great stay in our RV at Camp Richardson. All the utilities worked well and we had a secluded site in a far corner of the camp ground. We were happy with the space allocated. On our second evening a huge bear sauntered through the camp site which was a little unnerving, but not completely... More

Horrible dust bowl of a campground. Poor power and water connections, 3 feet from next campground. Almost ruined our camping trip experience. Saved by Meeks Campground and Resort. Will never return to Richardson or that overrun area of the lake again.

If you're looking for a place to "camp" where you can party all night, this is it. But, if you're like us, you want someplace more sedate and closer to nature. This isn't it. Surrounding campsites had bright lanterns and loud music way past midnight, so much that I couldn't show my daughter the constellations in quiet and darkness at... More

We stayed in the White cabin for a long weekend. Hoping to be back next yr for a full week. Go online to see where each cabin is located. We liked being down closer to the lake. But still just a short walk to Coffee shop or Hotel. Note the WiFi works faster outside the hotel on the bench outside... More

The camp site is quite expensive. It's $35 dollar per night and you have to pay for a 7 minute shower. A not working shower it is. I told the front desk that the shower is not working and all they said was, they would send someone over to check. They didn't even offer to give another token. All they... More

Beware of the second "bed" in the handicap room. The mattress is laughable if you don't have to sleep on it. My daughter says she feels like "road kill" after three nights on this fold out bed. The couch looks bad before you even fold it out. And the sides are damaged and sticking out - so you will have... More

We didn't actually get to take the cruise because a summer storm kicked up just before we were to leave the dock. This review is because I was so impressed with the management team. There were supposed to be 15 other people on that afternoon cruise but they all cancelled. My husband and I were already aboard enjoying our Rum... More

I looked at a lot of options in the South Lake Tahoe area before choosing Camp Richardson. I heard a lot about how touristy the downtown area can be, and that was pretty much true. I would have really preferred to stay in one of the private cabins on this resort, but everything was booked up when I contacted them.... More

We stayed at the campground at Camp Richardson while my mother-in-law stayed at the hotel during our visit. The positives of this resort is that it is in a beautiful woodsy setting and has a really nice sandy beach. The ice-cream parlor, coffee shop, camp store, beach. marina, and restaurant all add to the charm of this place. There are... More

I am a bit surprised to read so many reviews of this place as an amazing resort. Personally I would call it a decent 3 star hotel. The rooms are small and the mountain decor verges on tacky in many places. There are very few amenities: no TV, no wifi, a coffee machine that makes awful coffee with sachets of... More
