Our first night in Tahoe (Friday, June 27), we went here after seeing that it was ranked so high on here, not just as a pizza joint, but a restaurant. We were seated outside in a perfect spot to watch the live music going on right there. We had a waiter and his trainee, so we were well taken care of. (Can't recall their names at this point, but they were great!) They gave us good recommendations on beer and delivered them quickly. For our meal, we got a personal Fire Roasted Veggie and a medium BBQ chicken. The personal size was more than enough food and I could barely finish it. My boyfriend only managed to eat half of his medium and wished he had gotten the personal. Definitely start with a personal, unless you plan to share or take home leftovers. Both pizzas were delicious! In fact, they were so good that on Sunday night, we ordered a large veggie one to go and took it to our friends' campsite. This time, it took only two large slices to fill us up, allowing our friends to dig in and they all loved it, too. We can see why this place ranks so highly and will definitely go back again on our next trip.

South Tahoe is not the place to find good pizza but Base Camp has the best of the location. Good toppings, good crust and sauce. Nice location and eating outside in nice weather a bonus.

We ate artichoke dip that was awesome and a large base camp special. You are served XL pop and they are quick to refill. The outdoor concert music was great too. Family friendly.

We decided to order a Pizza for a simple & quick dinner. We ordered the pizza and decided to pick it up for indoor dining at our condo.

Seems like a simple task. Someone we know who visits Lake Tahoe regularly, recommended Base Camp. We decided to give it a try. The person who took the order seemed proficient. Told her what we wanted and went to pick it up. First mistake was not checking the pizza before we left. We did find out that pizza order was wrong. Some of our group is allergic to mushrooms.

I would have rated this facility 4Stars but the mistake upset us. A simple pizza order not taken correctly. Would consider going in and enjoying the Pizza in facility.next time. Pizza was good ,service was cause of this mediocre review. Cost of pizza was higher then normal.

Are there twice skiing over spring break. Only ate inside as it was cooler than we'd like. Friendly service. Did not feel rushed.
