We rented Boat for 2 hours it was great experience, renting process took 15 mins, other than that everything was great. Boat trainer was great he told us everything in detail and emerland bay instructions was helpful. Boat was in excellent condition. Definitely recommend that. i am planning to stay at the hotel too.

This is a resort and not wilderness camping. Once you understand that, yo will not mind crowding your RV and car into the space right next to your newbies window and their car and tents AND RV plus their six kids! Kids everywhere on bikes including two an three year olds unsupervised so drive with extreme caution. And the restrooms... More

Mom had the lamb lollipops, cooked to perfection. She had double veggies. I had the almond crusted chicken. Lili, our friendly waitress, warned me that it had a hint of curry. It was yummy! Sis had the beacon burger. Let's say that this was by far our best dining experience. We had a lake view, sat inside. They do have... More

We stayed at the camp Richardson hotel and it was nice. It wasn't worth the money because the rooms are small and the beds that they advertise as queens are not a real queen it is a full. Plus, the rooms, the way they are built, doesn't get much air flow. Non of the rooms have air conditioning which would... More

A really nice leisurely cruise from Camp Richardson's Marina to Emerald Bay and back. Neal and Holly were tremendous and the boat trip was a nice easy pace. We left the marina, headed straight for Emerald Bay came in to starboard of the Tea House, lingered at Vikingsholm and then departed leaving the Tea House to port again. We then... More

We had our family of 4 stay in one of the cabins. No TV - internet, etc, but the location is fantastic. Rent SUPs, kayaks, take a ride on the Rum Runner, eat at the restaurant - this place is a great stop at Tahoe. Reasonably priced and great accommodating service.

We loved this campground. There is a lot of work being done on and around it, but it was still a nice time. The staff at the desk were very friendly and pleasant to talk with. I would go back there in a heartbeat. We had a 31' RV and had minimal trouble parking it. The site had a good... More

You cannot beat the location of the Camp Richardson resort. The campsites are phenomenal. This time we stayed in the hotel and then moved into a cabin. The rooms are modest and clean. Although it says some rooms can sleep 4, expect that sleeping is all there is room for in those rooms. They are quite small. The beds also... More

Thanks to the guys and gals at the Marina! Very easy and nice kids! We had a family of 8 and 5 kiddos. The guys and gals at the Marina were awesome! They gave us some pointers on where to go and we had a blast.
