Welcome to Campground by the Lake 

Reservations for 2021 Season - OPEN

We are pleased to announce limited camping for the 2021 season beginning Friday, April 2, 2021.

All campers must be self-contained, in accordance with the Public Health Guidelines to prevent the spread of COVID-19. This means having the ability to use your own bathroom, electricity, and water inside your RV or motorhome. No public showers or restrooms will be open at this time.

If you are not able to self-contain please contact Campground by the Lake for a full refund.

To cancel an existing reservation visit Reserve America

The campground is open from April through October. Please be advised it can snow any month of the year in Lake Tahoe. April, May, and October are more likely to have occasional snowstorms than during the summer months. There are no refunds for cancellations due to weather inside of the 48-hour cancellation window. Tent cabins are no longer available for the 2021 or 2022 seasons.

Online Reservation Instructions: Go to Reserve America and set up a user profile to complete your reservation. All of the information regarding site fees, availability, amenities, and local attractions are available on the Reserve America Campground by the Lake reservation page.

For all other questions email Campground by the Lake.

Reservations for 2022 Season - CLOSED

Campground by the Lake is not currently accepting reservations for the 2022 season due to the construction of a new recreation and aquatics complex on the north side of the campground. The construction project will impact a portion of the campground (A, B, & C loops). We may open reservations on January 1, 2022, for a limited number of campsites in the D, E, and F loop once we determine those loops will be unimpacted by the construction project. Thank you for your understanding.
