The lake has receded quite a but that one of the docks is about 100 yards from the actual lake now (California drought). The campsite was well maintained. Each camping section seams to have it's own restroom within 2 minutes walking distance. The wildlife was " people friendly" to say the least. I…

New Hogan Lake

For the price ($20) it's not bad. Plenty of shade. Nice and pieceful. My only gripe was the shower. Some didn't have enough water pressure and others didn't work at all. Right now the boat ramp at acorn is about half a mile from the water.

  • Coffee smells best when you're camping.

We expected a bigger and cleaner area for kids to play in. Unfortunately, the pool area was not to expectations and had a foul smell. My son complained about green mold on the slide. The staff although are friendly and helpful.

Crowded, noisy, and pricy

Water was clean and fresh, sites were fairly clean as well. After those positive things the grounds were sparse and apparently they take reservations because all the posts had reserved signs on them although others say it is first come first serve. We were lucky to get the second to last spot…

Meteor shower camp out

Had a great time here. We had a spot a 20ft from the lake. It was a meteor shower night and it was amazing. I would recommend this place during the cooler months.

Horses! One of the few horse campsites with tons of great trails!

Lots of private sites; takes tents to big RVs. No cement or asphalt-all dirt. “Resort” is a bit of a stretch, this is no fancy “glamping.” Silver Lake, hiking, trails (tons!), kayaking, boating, fishing, swimming with ducks and geese, upper lakes to find. 8000 ft elev. some permanent loops with…

1st Couple’s Camping Trip

Campground was very nice and relaxing. Bathrooms could use some upgrades and store hours could be extended as well.

Overall it was nice just wish it had more things to do.

Kind of secluded, nice place

Good campsite, small venue so less people although a lot of the people there have OHVs. No hook ups, public bathrooms available. Plenty of shade and a creek nearby, although it was nearly dry in June. No fishing unfortunately.

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…

  • Woke up to a fresh blanket of powder!
  • Wintery wonder from the tent.
  • A good spot for winter camping.

Been coming here for our annual family camping trip for years now and love this place. The staff is always friendly and willing help. Will be coming back in the future.

Campground with lodge and store

I stayed in a tent cabin at Lake Alpine.  There were beds in the cabin, but the mattress wasn't that comfy.  If you're not staying at one of the regular cabins I would say to just get a campsite and stay in your own tent.  The area was really pretty.  It was a popular campground so there were a lot…

Worth it, if you have a boat

Any boat will do. Kayak, canoe, blow up row boat, SUP. The reason you need a floating vessel of some kind (no motors allowed) is because it’s impossible to get a car camping spot anymore. It used to be impossible to get a developed campsite but only somewhat difficult to get on of the (way way…

Nice spot for a weekend

We camped out for 2 nights in spot 96 in the height of summer and just before all the fires started. New Melones was not a top destination but it was close to a very special place for us, Natural Bridges. Also, at the time of booking it was one of the few campgrounds accepting new reservations in…

Awesome, secluded paddle in sites

We canoed and SUP camped here. You can find beautiful, isolated sites on the islands all around the lake. Great hammock camping!

Great Campground!

This campground is great if you have a boat or jetski, as you can moor your boat close to your site. There are working bathrooms and showers, not the height of luxury, but fairly clean, and you might find a cute little frog sharing your shower with you! I was here in July of 2019, and it was hot!…
