Friendlt staff, they bent over backward to make our stay enjoyable. The sites are large, flat and surrounded by towering pines. If you camp near the stream. The sound is wonderful.

This KOA's was great! The people checking us in were incredible helping us to find that "perfect" site and the man (Tom?) helped us make sure we were backed up just right and settled in before he left. The next morning while to build a campfire he brought us a lighter as soon as he discovered ours had pooped out. Nice, nice people. And the site by the creek, perfect!

This was far and away the nicest facility we have used. The owners were exceptionally friendly and helpful. Great setting.

Need to upgrade your toilet paper... it is so rough and soo thin. Also, when checking in we were told the pool is heated to 85 degrees, it was not at all that hot. I could swear the water was the same temperature as the outside temp when it was 74 degrees. I am however, thankful, for accomodating us in Spot # 17. Really enjoyed ourselves!!! You guys are in a very convenient location!!!

Great site, great host.

We loved the location and friendly staff. It feels more like camping then many of the grass/cement campgrounds. You can't beat the beautiful surrounding!

My wife and I throughly enjoyed our stay at KOA Lake Tahoe. We will definitely be back next year.

Pretty setting, nestled in the trees right next to a busy highway. Fairly noisy. Staff was helpful and friendly and the bathrooms were acceptable. Interior roads are twisty and narrow and the sites are not very level. The sites for larger rigs are closest to the busy highway. All this for only $57.00 a night!

we enjoy every minute,thanks.

Very friendly host. Decent size pad and fairly level for RV but additional space for table and chairs is on the small side. This may be typical here but more is desirable. The "Chalet" cabin was nice and roomy. Has 4 twin beds up on the loft with a drop down folding ladder. Master suite has a queen. Cabin can certainly accommodate more people than the 6 allowed.

Absolutely beautiful setting. Very clean campground.

Pretty spot, convenient to Lake Tahoe. Very clean restrooms/showers. They charge extra for WIFI and at this rate, huh?? Very overtly religious owners.
Sep 12, 2013
What a disappointment this KOA was. They have religious ads/verses everywhere. The sign on the bldg saying you must PAYto use bathroom if you're not a guest is rude. ONE hr a day for using WiFi is beyond cheap. Come on, why is that necessary? Tables need painting. Gross place.

Beautiful location, super clean facilities and friendly people.

Washrooms clean, friendly staff, nice location in the trees.
Sep 08, 2013
too noisy during night!
Sep 06, 2013
The staff running the campground were very friendly and extremely helpful. The campground is very close to a busy highway which made it hard to sleep at night.

Sites too close together and bathroom/ showers very small. We did enjoy the area where campers could do dishes and the staff was very friendly and helpful.
Sep 03, 2013
Fantastic and friendly staff, great coffee for $1, clean facilities, every staff member was very responsive to all inquiries. A bit close to the highway but not unusual for a travel trailer camp.

Beautifu! Love the natural look with the granite boulders and friendly staff. Restrooms need updating, showers small, no accessible restrooms. WIFI very spotty and limited bandwidth, could not send or post photos. A fenced dog area would be welcome. Store was well stocked. Camping area was built before larger RVs and Trailers so it is very tight in some areas. Staff guides you to your site. Thank

Facilities were fine but overpriced for what you get. Pretty far from the lake and too much religion was shoved down my throat. I found the Jesus stuff to be too much and offensive. Otherwise staff was friendly and helpful.
Sep 03, 2013
Clean facilities, nice fire-pits nice trees. Friendly helpful staff. This facility would be a 5 star but for the freeway noise and the price was high. $80.00 per night Plus $5.00 each dog and $10.00 per extra person over 2 people..
Aug 30, 2013
Everything was great for our stay, but the smoke from the rim fire, and that certainly was not your fault
Aug 29, 2013
Amazing stay. Facilities best ever seen for a campground. Personnel, the friendliest you could find. Everything easy to locate. Our info was waiting for us when we arrived. VERY HELPFUL.
Aug 26, 2013
very convenient and my kids loved the heated pool

Friendly staff. Rustic environment in the mountains. Facilities were clean. Good location too, not too far away from South Lake, but not too close either.

The most expensive koa I have ever stayed in. Plus I had to buy wifi.
Aug 21, 2013
We really enjoyed our stay a lot. Everyone was very friendly except one person. We were disappointed thou after we arrived home and they put an extra charge for having kids? We had 3, so $5.00 extra on each child added up to $45.00 on top of the $80.00 a day. Kind of expensive. All in all it was nice. Just didn't appreciate the extra charge we didn't know about.
Aug 20, 2013
The campground & bathroom/shower rooms were neat and clean. We enjoyed the church service on Sunday. Very friendly staff.
Aug 20, 2013
coming from Reno, late in night had a little bit of problem to find the camp. It would be nice to have marked distances on your map how to find it (in the KOA yearly book) even if I reserved the two nights sopt for months in advance, I got probably the worst tenting spot in the kamp. I am not sure I will visit you gys again, sorry.

The Lake Tahoe KOA staff were extremely welcoming and friendly. The pool/store area were clean & organized. Everything on the site was well signed and easy to follow. The only concerned I saw was the bathrooms located by P-51 were not as clean as I would have liked. There were dirty footprints on the last shower stall for two days. Everything else was great at this KOA. Thank you.
Aug 19, 2013
We were very impressed with the cleanliness and the staff was all that we've come to expect at KOAs...friendly, attentive to any and all needs and questions. Always a smile and a friendly greeting. Totally impressed with all aspects of our stay.
Aug 19, 2013
Very Friendly staff. Clean and pool was warm! A little close to hwy 50 for us due to traffic noise, but conveniently located to beaches and town. Park was nice for our son and campsite was very nice.

Very disappointed with our stay here. For the amount of money we payed for the Chateau, the facilities were not kept hospitable. The fridge was not cold upon arrival and took hours to bring to temp which cost us a lot of food, the bbq didn't work, shower was terrible. The staff did the minimum to keep these facilities maintained. Very unsatisfied and will not be suggesting this location to anyone


Sorry for your troubles. Refrigerator was checked immediately & temp turned down with free ice for interim. BBQ worked fine, it's just finicky. We filled propane tank & helped you light it both days. Chicken was replaced by us for free. Our professional cleaning service has very high standards.
Aug 17, 2013
Enjoyed everything. Employees are friendly, and the facility is quite clean. Thanks for a great stay. One suggestion, spend a couple of bucks and properly hide the cape tv lines.
Aug 16, 2013
We had reservations that were made ahead of time and when we arrived they put us in a site that when we opened our slide it was about 5 feet from the roof of the mens restroom. This should never be set as a site. Everyone was walking through our site to get to the bathroom, soda machine and office. There were many other sites open but they refused to move us or refund the cost for the stay.
Aug 15, 2013
The staff was very pleasent and helpful. I was very surprised by the warm and welcoming attitude by everyone I met.
Aug 14, 2013
This place was wonderful! Clean and quiet. Friendly staff. Close to everything but just far enough away from the crowds. We will definitely be going back.
