This was a nice RV park. We booked a full hook-up spot for 2 nights, but when we arrived were told that we had already checked in... a bit of messing around and we were given a spot, it was water and electric only. Seems like the 2 nights reserved were the wrong dates, despite me being very clear when... More

Great camp site though bring your own entertainment for the kids. Pope beach is a walk across the road though the water was way too cold to get in. A beautiful area and well worth a visit

Can't argue with the location and the grounds. Very nice. But from the minute we got there we had nothing but problems. We showed up a little past 3PM and the rooms we booked weren't ready. They hadn't been cleaned. No biggie. So they gave us some other room which was cool. But when we got in it turned out... More

Have been bringing my family to Camp Rich for the past 13 summers. Stay in the cabins closest to the lake. Beautiful view to wake up to each morning. Can be a bit chaotic/crowded/noisy during summer holidays (ie...4th of July), but the crowds clear out the next day and it returns to its beautiful self. Highly recommend for families, especially...

We go every February with a group that takes over the whole place. Cabins vary in size from super small one room to medium sized 2 bedrooms. Gorgeous views of the lake. Many cabins have full kitchens. The rooms in the lodge right on the highway are pretty small and a few have shared bathrooms. Walls are thin but street... More

Stayed here for a family wedding. It was really beautiful being a couple minutes walk to the lake and mountains. The hotel room was really nice with unique wooden furniture. The bathroom was a bit small but did the job. The sink faucet needed to be replaced though. Lots of nice walking trails near by.The food at the general store... More

Hands down this is the spot to be in the winter. During the summer it seems kind of busy and chaotic. There are several small historic cabins right on the lake, come mid-week, mid winter and you almost have the place to your self. The cabins themselves are rustic not fancy at all but fit the place perfectly.

Camp Richardson is actually a large complex with: a "hotel," one and two bedroom log cabins, tent grounds, a general store, a rental for bikes/kayaks/etc, marina, and ice cream store/coffee house. I stayed here for a wedding and did not know cabins were an option, or I would have picked that. Instead, we were in the hotel and it was... More

The problem with camp Richardson is that it attracts campers who just want to party into the early morning hours and with no security patrols you are pretty much left to the mercy of that type of crowd. Had to call the police a couple of times to shut down parties that got out of hand. Bottom line if you... More

I cannot think of a better place to spend some summer vacation time than the Lake Tahoe area. And the Camp Richardson resort gives you the opportunity to live in the beauty of Lake Tahoe. They have many options, from a hotel stay to cabin rental, to tent camping, to the RV Park. We tried staying at the cabins this... More
