Great October stay here. Scenic spot nestled in the woods and yet conveniently close to town. It’s a big campground though and many of the sites seem to be tightly spaced. Seems the outer rim sites are more spacious than inner. Suspect our experience would have felt differently on that inner rim.
Access to the lake is convenient and super scenic to mention nothing of canoeing and kayaking and swimming opportunities.
This is a really nice looking campground. I was lucky it wasn’t too crowed and the people staying were all respectful. There is a cool lake right there on site just a short walk to it. They have bathrooms and showers. No cell service, but close to a main road where service can be found.
What a great spot in Sunnyside/Tahoe City. This is the cleanest campground we’ve ever stayed in. When we arrived the camp hosts were very welcoming and informative with local suggestions (we’re up here at least 8-10 times a year if only on a day drip or long and I learned some insights) they also warned about momma bear and her cubs. Unfortunately we never caught a glimpse but a good warning to be careful with where you leave food. The bathrooms were cleaned several times a day and even had soap. Our site was freshly raked and the fire pit was freshly cleaned out as well. The campers were respectful and not a party crowd like you can get on the South Shore. We will definitely be back.
Fallen Leaf Campground is located on south lake Tahoe about a mile from the beach. It's a great staging campground to all that south lake Tahoe has to offer to include, hiking, paddle boarding, swimming, fishing, gambling and much more.
The campground is large but most of the campsite are spread out. However there are a few that are right on top of each other so be wise in choosing. There's a path to the actual Fallen Lake which is beautiful.
Cell Service: Bad
We just got back from a short 2 night trip to William Kent. It was a lovely little spot. The sites are definitely close together and the pads are tight. We have a 25 ft travel trailer and with my husbands truck it was definitely a tight squeeze. Plus our pad was really not very flat so leveling the trailer was tough. But beyond that, we had a great site. Someone else made the reservations but I think we really lucked out. Yes, we were on the back end, so as far from the lake as you could be, and yes there are cabins that butt up to some of the sites. But we rode our bikes and/or walked to the lake still, and we barely even saw any people in the cabins. Now there were other sites that were much closer to houses than that and I'm not sure I could've handled those but our site was great. The site itself was huge and really nice for my large family. There is a breakfast place right next to the campground so if you want more glamping you can swing over there in the morning. We also didnt care for the William Kent beach area cause there are no dogs allowed, so instead we drove down a few miles to a dog beach that was really nice. I dont know the name but it's to the right out of the campground, a few miles down and you will run into it. All in all, if you want dispersed camping, this isnt the place for you. But if you want a nice place to set up shop and be super close to tahoe and other amenities, this is a great spot. We had site 30.
We really enjoyed this place. A short walk to Fallen Leaf lake and about a mile walk to Lake Tahoe. They have a trail that takes you there. The camp spots were spacious and was fairly quiet at full capacity. There is a very active bear population and there are bear boxes for coolers etc. We had one at our campsite around 1 am but a flashlight quickly scared it off.
This was our first campground after buying an RV. We had planned to be there before night fall but those plan didn’t work out. So we had to maneuver in the dark. We bumped a big rock and a tree branch smacked out antenna on top. But the view in the morning was well worth it.
Fallen Leaf Lake and its campground were really beautiful and felt remote despite being pretty close to the development of South Lake Tahoe. Our spot (84) was not very private or great for a tent, but it worked for our overnight. The bath house was nice and new/clean. The hosts were super super friendly, but they called it a day pretty early (5?) so we missed out on buying firewood onsite. They did warn us about bears in such an admiring way, it was really sweet. However, we didn't see any bears, just poo about 20 feet from our tent (!). Fire ring, giant table, bear box, water, all as expected.
The lake itself is stunning. Seriously. Dusk was perfectly still and calm, but early morning was also beautiful. Would absolutely stay or visit here again.
