Ask for a room with a deck is that is literally over the water, and be ready for rustic. When we stayed in July, all the staff at the resort and marina were really nice except Ed, the marina manager, who was rude to the point of meanness to a lot of people. He's chummy with his repeat customers, but... More

I always try to find a little adventure when I'm on the road for long periods of time. I decided to camp on Lake Tahoe before the King Fire flared up over in Placer County, and was concerned the resulting smoke would ruin my stay. The first night was pretty smoky, but it cleared off to become the most beautiful... More

This resort is a wonderful place to take your family. We go every year. The water is beautiful & shallow. The cove makes you feel like you are in the Bahamas. There is a lot to do and hospitable guests. It is like the same families go up every year, which is wonderful for kiddos. I highly recommend.

someone needs to pay more attention to the upkeep of the cabins. This property has by far the most spectacular views and access to Lake Tahoe!!! You cannot find a better place to stay right on the lake. The staff is wonderful and friendly. I've never encountered a friendlier housekeeping staff. Kudos to all of them. All the management needs... More

I went camping here with 2 of my cousins and my brother. It was an awesome place to camp. It was very open though, not much space or privacy between each camp site...but that didn't matter to us. we were campsite T4 so we were right next to the bathrooms. At first we were worried that there was going to... More

My family has been coming to the campground which is just across the marina since the 1940's when the forest service owned it. We stayed here recently, and the Resort part is really nice. When my folks were coming to this area to camp, we always thought of the cabins as the "Rich people" part. Now we stay here, but... More

We camped there with a tent trailer. The location is amazing. Beatiful beach. Restrooms and showers looked new and were very clean. Hot water was incosistent, though. Could be hot and wonderful, but at time was plain cold. Beware you need to buy coins to use the showers, and coins are sold only at the resort's general store that closes... More

Two families with 3 teenagers spent two great nights camping over the labor day weekend. The beach was lovely and having the marina right there where you could rent paddle boats,stand up paddle boards, kayaks, or ski boats was wonderfully convenient. I was very surprised by the negative review above because our experience could not have been more different. Every... More
