“Good food and good vibe”
Reviewed June 6, 2014

The pizza was delicious at Base Camp Pizzo Co. We ordered the Basecamp pizza I believe and all the toppings tasted fresh and flavorful. We love pizza so we are picky when it comes down to where we eat it. I tried the Tahoe Sunset cocktail and it was really good. The spinach dip appetizer came with a lightly fried pita bread it is was so good!

Live music was playing on the patio while a local artist painted as he got into the music. The patio style string lights set a nice mood.

Service was great and they were really good about moving around the heaters so everyone stayed warm. It's a popular stop so make sure to have a little snack before dinner since the wait was pretty long (about 45mins). Kid and large party friendly.

“Thanks trip advisor for sending me here”
Reviewed June 5, 2014 via mobile

We were looking for just a pizza, but this place didn't serve us "just" a pizza. It was really good. We had the Base Camp pizza - it had the correct amount of tomato sauce to match the toppings. The crust wasn't too yeasty or thin - just right. There was live music nearby adding to the fun. This is how to do a pizza right. Service was friendly and prompt too. GreT place

“Pizza very good”
Reviewed June 3, 2014

Recommended by hotel staff as we were hungry from day of driving. Place was very busy for a Thursday night but were seated soon after arriving. Service was prompt. Menu choices were plentiful from pizza to pasta to salads. We had salads (they were large) and ordered our favorite pizzas from the make your own choices. Food was very good and filling. We took left overs with us and finished the next day. When we passed the Base Camp Pizza Co. during our days in the area, it was very busy - obviously a very popular place. Recommend you try it.

“Great Pizza”
Reviewed June 3, 2014

We went for lunch and sat outside. The pizza is very good here and the service is excellent. They are always busy but you don't wait long to be seated. We got free garlic bread by mentioning we were staying at the Timber Lodge. They didn't even ask for a room key or anything...just took our word for it. The bottomless drinks are huge and the portions are ample. The best pizza around

“Excellent - Don't miss it”
Reviewed June 2, 2014

We actually had two meals here - pizza and pasta. Both were fantastic. We also stayed a few hours one night to enjoy the live music. This place is a must when visiting the area. Try the root-beer on the adult drink menu.
