We visited this area several times while in Tahoe. We rented bikes here and they were top notch. We enjoyed the ice cream parlor and the general store as well. Everyone that works there was very helpful.

We just came back from 3 nights at Camp Richardson. We stayed in space #71 which is towards the back of the park. We had partial hookups, electric and water only in that area of the park. Most spaces were clean and nice size. I give the reservation staff kudos because when you make reservations, they tell you upfront that... More

Recently visited Camp Richardson and was overwhelmingly disappointed with the quality of the accomadations at a price in the mid $200.00 per night - would have been better off sleeping in my car. Our room was in a shabby one story building, smoke filled, we had asked for non-smoking, no air conditioning, and very unclean. The Camp Richardson web site... More

We booked camping reservations 5 months in advance and were never informed until the day before we were suppose to arrive that we will need to bring additional water hose extensions and electrical extensions cords because the hookups are located in the front of the campsite. Depending on the length of trailer, my water hose and electrical cord may not... More

Went there on Sunday and it was very, very crowded. Wanted to make boat reservation for the following day, but there was no parking and was advised that there most likely will be an 18' boat available. Returned on Monday about 10a.m. and had no problem with renting an 18' runabout. Was a little put off, as it appeared these... More

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
