This is by far one of our favorite restaurants when we visit Tahoe! On average, we eat here 2+ in a week. The BBQ Chicken pizza is AMAZING, as well as the pear salad! The wait is sometimes 45+, but if youre not on a time crunch, there is lots to do and see while in the village. The Basecamp... read more

Seriously yummy pizza! My wife and I walked by and were pulled in by the smell of amazing pizza! We got the margarita pizza - so simple, but amazing! Don't think of this as just another pizza joint - Base Camp Pizza is AWESOME! Just do it!

Base Camp Pizza was the best place we dined all week! We sat outside and enjoyed lived music from a talented man playing our favorite cover songs and taking requests from the audience. Even Taylor Swift requests from the kids! My husband and I were not that hungry, but needed to eat. We split a medium Thai Chicken Curry pizza,... More

If you're looking for a fun place to eat on the south shore this is it! Great for families or couples. They have some really yummy pasta dishes as well as good pizza; there really is something for everyone. Watch out for busy weekends and prime summer hours as they get really busy!

It's not super-wow great pizza, but the service was fast, the beer selection is very good and the wait was tolerable. Be prepared, it's noisy, not a place to sit and have a relaxing meal.

Base Camp is located right in Heavenly Village. It get pretty crowded, so get your name on the list and then grab a from the bar across the "square" and sit to enjoy the liveliness while you wait. There is usually live music, cornhole, people watching and a few other things to do while you wait. The pizza and salads... More

This is a great spot. The Thai Pizza is amazing. But, it's always crowded...so be prepared. They also own Azul's around the corner.

Very good pizza. Not too long of a wait. Crust is just perfect and not too thick. Price per pizza is in line with other pizza places like Round table. Also gave us ranch dressing and didn't charge us...which other places have. The only thing that is a bummer is that they are tucked away in the shopping center and... More

We loved the food! We had the Thai pizza. It was delicious! My daughter had the pasta Bolognese, which was also excellent. There was a long wait, but it was totally worth it.

Waited two hour hours to be seated. Once seated it took awhile for server to show up. The server seemed more interested in socializing with friends outside of restaurant. The food was good but certainly not worth the wait or poor service.
