Stayed at Meek's Bay for 3 nights in an RV. We had plot R2 which is close to the toilets & showers & very close to the beach. Site was very clean and the toilets were cleaned daily to a good standard & kept clean. Didn't use the showers as we had the RV, but they looked very clean & are "wet room style" so spacious.
The beach is wonderful & Lake Tahoe a pleasure to swim in, so clear & clean although a little cold! You can hire speed boats , canoes or paddle boards from the marina at Meek's Bay although we didn't get round to it unfortunately. The scenery is beautiful as you face the Nevada mountains and have pine trees all around you. A snack bar on the beach serving beverages & snacks like burgers & nachos etc at pretty good value. Ducks & Canadian geese walk around the beach which is quite bizzare as your mind is continually fooled as you think you are sitting on a beach by the sea!
The staff were very friendly & really helpful. We had run out of fire wood one evening & there was none in the shop but the staff delivered us some to out plot - no hassle at all.
There is a bus that stops outside the resort & you can travel around the lake with ease. Make sure you hop on it & go for a meal at Gar Woods in Carnelian Bay - absolutely beautiful lake front restaurant. They have a very interesting drinks menu where you can order a range of Wet Woody drinks & the food menu is excellent too.
The temperature drops dramatically at night so take a jumper - remember you are at an elevation of 7,000 feet! You are also in bear country so all rules about food & smellies in bear boxes apply. If you are in an RV though you can leave everything inside it as long as you draw the curtains.
I will definately return & next time will stay in one of the cabins or lodges that are here too. The cabins have balconies that hang over the waters edge - just beautiful.
