Last night my husband and I and our friends were looking for a place to eat dinner before the Rascal Flatts Concert at Harrah's in South Lake Tahoe. We decided to try the Base Camp Pizza Co. since we walked by it so often this past ski season in the "Heavenly Village". They were very friendly and seated us outside... More

Went for dinner. Ordered a medium pizza and a salad. Blue cheese dressing was excellent, salad greens were fresh, pizza was adequate for 2 with some leftover. Price was very reasonable.

I'm not sure if the euphoria of experiencing Tahoe and Heavenly Village has anything to do with it....but Base Camp Pizza was legit! Some of the best pizza I've had! Live music playing on the patio...games of bean bag toss for the kids....lively fun atmosphere. It's been packed every time we've come! There was a wait....well worth it....that's ok...we got...

I know pizza. After all, I'm from NY/NJ. This pizza was delicious. Not NY style but really good. We had Mediterranean, Base Camp and Thai Curry Chicken and they were all delicious. The funny thing was that no one wanted the Thai Pizza but me and then everyone agreed it was the best of the 3. Don't know about the... More

Brought a crowd for dinner, it was the same price as going to a "lesser" pizza place. The atmosphere was wonderful, great service, but most of all delicious pizzas and drinks. Will go back next time we are in the area!

We had eaten at Base Camp a couple times in the past but wanted to see if it was still as good as before. Well, we weren't disappointed. After we were seated, we waited patiently for a server to greet us. Finally, the manager noticed us waiting and asked to assist us. She was awesome! She was very engaging, she... More

I read the reviews on trip advisor and thought this pizza restaurant had to be visited... amazing! It was very busy for a Monday evening and we were told that there was a 30/40 minute waiting time for our preferred option to eat on the terrace. The bar area was lively and we had drinks which were served promptly. We... More
