A rare winter camping option in Tahoe.

Most campgrounds close over the winter in Tahoe but we were delighted to stumble across Sugar Pine Point in mid March when there is still a good bit of snow around. Only a handful of sites are open, but the bathrooms are open and there is running water at the sites. We were in a rootfop tent so it didn't impact us, but the sites themselves are generally covered in snow. Only a handful of campers were braving the cold/snow. There was a good bit of snow overnight, but they were really on the ball plowing first thing in the morning.

Well-spaced shady campsite

Pros: If you’re tired of fighting crowds around Lake Tahoe in peak season, head to the north west side of the lake to Sugar Pine where you’ll find lots of open sites amongst shady pines. Location is great and close to some of the less crowded beaches and is surrounded by easy trails. With so many large pines, you’ll have lots of options for hanging your hammock. Not too crowded and sites are spacious. Bathrooms are clean.

Con: Noise carried easily and heard lots of campers

Tips: Saw 2 bears, so appropriate food storage is a must (and you’ll get fined). Bring single (one) dollar bills for the showers.

Absolutely stunning

There were 20 of us on a camping trip and this group site was amazing. We were all able to claim tent space and have extra places to hang out or cook meals. The bear bins were located great and even got to see a couple of them by our tents. The location of the campground is great and just a short drive or walk to Lake Tahoe. Over all best sleep on a picnic table I've had (it's a preference to tents)!

Great for families!

Really nice campground for families - bike trails, hiking trails, and access to the lake! Nearby showers are nice, too! Campground is near Tahoma Market if you need ice or last minute goodies.

Gorgeous and clean mountain water!

The lake can be a little chilly, but the resort is clean, are clean and the staff is very nice. No cell phone reception. I highly recommend this Campground.

Peaceful piney heaven

Went with a group from a local environmental organization. It is nestled in a lovely area of tall pines, the sites are arranged nicely and is a part of a very nice state park.
