Excellent spot in Tahoe

A great campsite not too far from South Lake Tahoe. While most campsites are on the smaller size, there are a few which can accommodate larger tents. The hosts were very friendly and on the whole, those who camp here are courteous and respectful of others and the site. I highly recommend this campground to anyone looking for a campsite that’s laid back, quiet and away from the crowds other sites like Richardson draw. Definitely a site worth coming back to

Nice campsite near South Tahoe

Nice! Very clean vault toilets and drinking water. Safe and quiet with nice hosts. Popular with climbers and there’s a short trail that leads down to a river that’s very scenic. Good cell reception. Solo female traveler approved for safety and comfort.

Great for Rock Climbing!

The campsite we stayed in was a little bit of a walk in (could not drive to it) but it was beautiful with just a short walk to the crag. Natural and quiet, even though 50 is not far away!

Gorgeous area

The cliffs at Lovers Leap are spectacular, and this valley is beautiful. The town of Strawberry has a friendly general store. This is a destination for climbing, and there is also hiking along the old Pony Express trail. The camping is reasonably priced (no concessionaire), and the pit toilets are well-maintained. I don't think it's possible to make a reservation, and camping seems to fill up on the weekends.
