We did not stay here - we went on their 1pm Rum runner cruise. It is 1.5 hours long and gently cruises up to Emerald bay. Nice relaxing speed. Not a big narrative tour - just some info given in the bay about Vikingsholm. Rum runner drinks were great - not too sweet ($8 each onboard)! At the end of... More

The resort staff and forest rangers ran a bear out of camp, at 3am, with a air horn. Really!?! Woke up hundreds of people while they did this for hours. Ruined my next day. Will never stay there again.

We took our travel trailer on its maiden voyage to Camp Richardson with our two kids. Check in was easy, but we did have to go into the hotel to check in. The front desk staff was very friendly and helpful. The young woman who helped me choose a good site for our first time was spot on! Our site... More

Excellent stay in >100 year old rustic cabin with the only downside being the location. It was too close to a dusty, unpaved road. Other than that the facilities offered both at the cabin and the Lodge were excellent.

Rum Runner from the beach to emerald cove is a trip I will always remember. Strong Rum tropical drinks and crystal clear Tahoe waters. We rented kayaks... swam and jumped from the docks.. ate at Beacon Grille, which closes early we found out as we arrived late from Vegas. Difficult transition to a tent from the Mandalay Bay in Vegas,... More

Didn't stay at the resort but we did take the kids horseback riding with them and they were friendly happy and seemed to love their job! They joked with my teenager and the guide even took pictures of us on my cell phone

I had some time in mid-week to try this hotel, just to see what it was like... but I checked in quite late at night, and was tired from the drive. When presented with a half-page of room occupancy conditions, I balked, but the clerk said I had to initial them all. I read a few, and they had to... More

My wife and I just returned from a five day trip at the rv campground and had a nice time. The campground is typical for an rv type and there are many nice, shady spots and some with full hook ups. There are running toilets and hot showered for use if you wish and they work fine! It is a... More

"Historic Hotel" can mean old, very old, outdated, rustic,but the Camp Richardson Historic Hotel accommodations were none of the above. Our "King Deluxe" room was well appointed, super comfortable bed, clean, comfortable and the overall experience was perfect. No air-conditioning, but we opened the windows to get the fresh Tahoe air, turned on the overhead fan and was never uncomfortable.... More

During a week-long stay at Lake Tahoe we happened to explore the historic Camp Richardson resort after having dined at its lakeside restaurant. We looked at two cabins and inquired about whether one of them would be available after our week was up. We stayed in the Cadillac cabin for two days -- there was a Winter special: two days... More
