Tahoe State Recreation Area & Campground

The campground has 23 campsites with picnic tables, required-use food storage containers, and fire pits.

The campground is located just a quarter of a mile from beautiful Tahoe City where you can ride your bike to Squaw Valley, raft down the Truckee River, or visit the Gatekeeper Museum to learn about local history. At the campsite itself, enjoy the picturesque scenery of Lake Tahoe nestled in the small woods of Ponderosa and Jefferey pine. The woodsy campground features a lake with a fishing pier, picnic areas with benches, and a bike path.
