Camping and fireworks Lake Tahoe

We live about 2 hrs from Lake Tahoe but haven't travelled there much. At the last minute, we are thinking of camping one night and watching 4th of July fireworks, but know nothing about best places to do this. We're traveling with kids ages 5, 8 and 10. Is it too late to secure a good campsite for this weekend? Any advice appreciated!

Sorry, I'm pretty sure everything is booked. It's a very popular and crowded weekend.

That's what I discovered. Oh well, we'll be better prepared next year. Thanks.

We have been going up every year since 2005 to enjoy our timeshare and see the fireworks show.

We are leaving early in the morning as we stop at Thunder Valley Indian Casino and have breakfast and play few slots just to get the practice for Tahoe.

We have been going to the Chart House for Dinner every year but last year they seemed to charge way to much just so we could set outside on the lawn and watch.

This year we are getting pizza and sitting in the car up the hill by our resort and watch it.

We were there over the 4th of July in 2008. Zephyr cove campground was maybe 1/2 full at that time.

We are up here right now at the Ridge and its full this week. Was told over 100,000 people up for July fpurth fire works show. Thought lioke many holiday weeks they would clear out after the fourth but our parking lots are still full here today.

Resort said this is the best its been in couple years now. Harrah,s and Harveys crowed too! Alantas in Reno was wall to wall people on Sunday.
