We stayed for a week in the turn-key trailer parked in the RV sites. The trailer had a walk around queen with closets on either side and cabinets above the bed and storage under the bed. There was a flat screen tv with DVD player that you could have face the walk around queen or face the main living area. It also had a couch that folded out to a bed and a wrap around dinette that folded down into a bed. Plus, my kids favorite...bunk beds. There was a large slide out that had the dinette and the couch on it. The trailer was clean as if it was brand new. And fully stocked like a hotel room. The bunk beds and Queen bed were made with freak clean linens and there were plenty of more linens in the storage cupboards to make the other beds if you choose as well. The kitchen was stocked with everything you could need except the food. Plates, glasses (including wine glasses), flatware, pots, pans, cutting boards, cooking utensils, coffe maker, toaster, mixing bowls, pot holders, dish towels, sponges, dish soap, paper towels...I'm sure I missed something, they thought of everything. Bathroom was fully stocked with endless amounts of shampoo, conditioner, soap, towels and toilet paper(there was even a hair dyer). Plus more than plenty extra supplies in the storage bins. Trailer had full hook-ups (no cable), plus heat & AC. Great campsite under the beautiful trees with a fire pit and picnic table. The kids loved riding their bikes around the campground and even found a area where someone had set up a little track with some small jumps. The beach is just across the street, we would ride our bikes down there each day and drive a truck over with easy up, ice chest and chairs. It is $7 to park at beach, but comes with a $7 coupon for the Beachcomber restaurant that is right there at the beach. The beach was really crowded so we would drive over in the am and claim our spot then come back to enjoy when we were ready. You can rent paddle boats, kayaks, paddle boards and I think jet skis and boats as well. Campground isnt too far from town to run and grab supllies or see a movie or donate some money to the casinos. The Edgewood, just over the NV border is a great place for a nice evening out (without kids). We went up and floated down the Trukee river one day...highly reccomend. The kids (4,7&9) loved it.. We had 3 adults & 4 kids in one raft plus a small ice chest. A great time was had by all. Plus you end at a great outdoor restaurant/bar overlooking the river and then they bus you back up to the starting area. We also took the kids on a horseback trip with the Camp Richardson Corral guides. The kids loved it and we saw some amazing views of the lake from up on the mountain.
I highly reccomend Camp Richardson and the turn-key trailer for a wonderful family vacation.
