This is the second time I've take this tour. I have a house in South Lake Tahoe, and am always looking for things to do when I have visitors. This tour has been great, as it is only 1.5 hours long, serves great drinks and is a nice way to get on the lake for an affordable price. I've taken...

We took a bike trip on the Pope Baldwin Bike Path on a Sunday afternoon and stopped at Camp Richardson to look into renting a See-Doo a few days later. The staff at the marina was very helpful and got us scheduled for that Wednesday. When we arrived for our rental the staff were very helpful; especially the guy who...

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...

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...

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...

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...

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...

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...
