BPC has a great location close to the Gondola & Shops, so it's conveniently located and a good place for lunch. The staff is friendly, and the pizzas are, creative, relatively thin crust, loaded w/ cheese, and tasty. It's not the best pizza that I've ever had, but good. They come in 3 convenient sizes, which is great in the... More

My husband and I visited Basecamp Pizza in June of this year. We were there on a Sunday night, after having arrived in Tahoe earlier that day. It was extremely crowded (we did not have a long wait, though), as it was the beginning of summer, and very loud, but definitely worth it! There was a local band playing just... More

This place was packed, but we were willing to sit outside and were seated immediately. They have heaters outside and also live entertainment in the evenings so it was really nice. Service was prompt and friendly. Our waitress provided good but not invasive service. Food was very good. We ordered a pizza and it was VERY flavorful, using fresh ingredients... More

Pizza was great! Beware of the bees if you eat outside! Our waiter suggested that we keep our pizza in a to go box and take out 1 slice at a time and that worked perfectly! Great food & atmosphere!

Came into town Friday night and met some friends and they suggested eating at Base Camp Pizza Co and it did not disappoint. We only had to wait about 15 minutes to be seated and was able to sit outside with the music. Mother man playing was very good but it was hard to talk at the table, but still... More

Stopped here for lunch on a Saturday and it was very busy. We ended up sitting outside, as the weather was very nice and felt great. Great atmosphere, there was a gentleman playing some live acoustic guitar music, and he was great. The food itself was decent, the pizza tasted like every other pizza place but it wasn't bad so...

Our family of four stopped in for dinner on a weekday night in September and weren't disappointed. The service was attentive and friendly, and accommodated gluten-sensitivity preferences without hesitation. The pizza was delicious (including the gluten-free crust pizza) and my kids loved their spaghetti with meat sauce. My husband enjoyed the local beer selections.

If you go on a popular night expect to wait. We waited for almost 90 min to get seated and so we had to find stuff to do with the kids. Which really is not hard because the area has lots of activities- golf and trampoline jump and unique shops. Be sure to get the free garlic fries coupon on... More
