“Exactly what I was looking for!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 24, 2013 via mobile

I was looking for a cabin that was not too expensive for some solitude for a few days, actually had been looking for just this place on 2 different month long road trips. I finally found it at camp Richardson. I know it's a different story during high season but right now, it's perfect.

My cabin has a separate bedroom with a nice living/kitchen/dining area. And a view of Lake Tahoe just a short walk away. The cabin was spotless, full size fridge and stove/oven. And a little gas wood stove for heating. Sitting out at my picnic table the sweet smell of pines and the breeze swishing thru the trees, made this one of the most relaxing places I've been. Now it's time to take my chair down to the empty beach and sit in the sun. Perfect.

We came up to Tahoe for an overnighter. Room was awesome, weather was great for this part of year, no one was around. Very Quiet for this area, the summers are packed as it should be. We stayed at the rooms near the water, very nice, pine trees and lake views from room. Rates very reasonable for off season. Next stay will be in one of the cabins for longer that one night. Thanks to staff for their courteous service!!!

Our Family, Sr. mother and father, adult son and wife and 2 young children, and single adult son stayed in the two bedroom T-Bird Cabin. Great view of Lake Tahoe. Cabin was well furnished. It was warm in 30 degree weather. A gas fireplace added to the wintertime ambience The kitchen had all needed dishes and equipment. Hot water for showers.

Room Tip: The T-Bird cabin seems to be closest wintertime cabin to the Lake.

Our family wanted a little getaway to celebrate two birthdays. We decided to spend a long weekend at Historic Camp Richardson cabins. We rented two cabins that faced beautiful Lake Tahoe. The cabins were ready when we arrived which made the grand children very happy. These cabins are rustic but very clean and equipped with everything you need to have a very enjoyable time. The two cabins we rented were Tbird and Willy's knight. These two cabins were close to each other which made it very easy for the ten of us to travel between cabins. You can check Richardson's website for room configurations. Our family had a amazing time making memories while enjoying the beautiful surroundings.

We stayed there for two nights on Christmas Eve and Day. We had 7 people, so we rented one of the large cabins. It was awesome! It had a living room with a fireplace, kitchen with supplies, and two smaller rooms with beds. Overall, very clean, very warm, and a great experience.

Warning: Snow is big in the winter. Your driveway may be no more.

My husband and I stayed for 2 nights and we had a blast. Octoberfest and the Salmon Festival was within walking distance. The staff there were friendly and informative. The campsites were very clean. The bathrooms when we first arrived were very clean but as the weekend went on they seemed to get more "campground bathroom" status. But was doable. We slept in our car because I was affraid of the bears, but we didn't see any or hear any. We kept all our stuff in the bear locker and didn't have any problems. Next time we will sleep in the tent. They have a fence around the campground, and even though that won't stop a hungry bear, it made me feel alittle better. We had site # 360 in the Badgers Den area. This sand #361 would be perfect for large group. You can fit 5 big tents easily. Only room for 1 car at each site.

We rented a cabin overlooking Lake Tahoe for the weekend and it was incredible. Our cabin was clean and the grounds around it were incredible. My family including my grandkids had a wonderful time. The marina next door had music until 6:00pm which we sat outside and enjoyed. 9:00pm it was so peaceful outside you could hear a pin drop. The views, the walks around the lake, seeing the old mansions, etc. was great. The staff that checked us in where funny, helpful and professional. .General store is pricey, But there is a Raley's and Safeway in town for supplies. Cabin is fully stocked with everything you need in cookware, plates, cups, silverware. Great Refrigerator and stove. We will be back next year.
