Our truck broke down on the highway outside South Lake Tahoe. After calling AAA, the towing company gave us the names of 3 campgrounds to call for a space for our Airstream trailer. Tahoe Valley had a space for us and it is one of the most beautiful places we have stayed. We ended up staying for a week even... More

It is always nice to come to the cooler climate and have the fresh air. Evening fires are allowed as long as they are in a pit. Pool redo is nice and clean and people always seem to play nice. Always friendly folks nearby. Close to the lake, shopping and restaurants if needed.

Beautiful tall pine trees so had shade almost all day. Paved road thru-out campground and lighted bathrooms were a definite plus. Didn't need the 'lamp-post' by the walkway lit all night, though. Grandkids LOVED the playground area.

A beautiful place that unfortunately seems to rely on its WONDERFUL location. Too bad. It would be nice if the ownership took pride in the restrooms. The restrooms should be re-done because they are not as good as most state parks.

We had 18 members of our family travel from Bakersfield to Lake Tahoe to stay at Tahoe Valley Campground. I requested that we get sites close to each other. When we arrived, I was so pleased to find that all five families were in close proximity of each other. We gathered every night for dinner and family time. We appreciated... More

Unless your part of the 1000 Trails/Encore membership (where you choose your spot) you are put in a cramped section of the RV horde of motor homes that are so close that there is barley room to move around the picnic table, you are about 1 head length from the "slide-out" of the guy next to you. At $60 a... More

This was one of the best campsites we have ever stayed at. It was in a great location and offered a lot of family oriented activities. We were attending a SDA meeting and loved being among the trees and nature.

We purchased a Thousand Trails membership and Tahoe Valley Campground was included in our package. Unfortunately we chose a very busy time during our 2 week stay the last week of July/ August and had to move to different sites 6 times during our stay, which was very inconvenient. Overall the campground and personnel were great. We would stay again... More

We appreciated the friendly helpful staff. The campsite was clean and large. Our 30' trailer with 2 super-slides fit nicely with plenty of room to park our truck and set up a tent for family to visit. This will be our new local "goto" resort.
