Campground Reviews

Aug 09, 2015
Great place but a little pricey. That is the only reason for the 8/4 marks. We had a good time.
Aug 09, 2015
Nice campground, staff helpful.
Aug 09, 2015
This was my first stay at a KOA campground and was disappointed with the set up of the grounds. All the campsites were crammed together so that your tent(s) are feet away from your neighbors tent and campfire. The campgrounds are located between 2 major roads that you can hear all night. The staff was not overly friendly. However the prices at their store are reasonable and the showers are great!

We received a warm welcome upon arrival. Our campsite was wonderful. Clean bathroom & nice hot showers. Loved that there was a small store & pool.Only drawback was that we could hear the trucks on nearby highway. Otherwise, this campground & staff exceeded my expectations.Would stay again.

Nice quiet campground away from all of the tourists. I love the Christian atmosphere. The staff were extremely helpful with lining up our trailer.

Location, facilities, and staff were great.
Aug 04, 2015
super friendly staff from the start. next time we will request a campsite not so close to the shower and restroom as it there was a lot of foot traffic. great fire pit! super fantastic location to all the great sites in Lake Tahoe. we will stay here again!
Aug 04, 2015
campsites were not level, too small, we stayed by one that said 'beside creek' more like beside bolders to the creek

True, we have cozy campsites near Echo Creek. Due to the California Drought, sometimes we call it "Essence of Creek." Pray for rain!

It was nice to stay there but we were blamed for being loud when in really it was our neighbors at sight 13 who were loud at night and early in the morning.

Camp security routinely visits each campsite to ensure everyone understands our quiet time, so everyone can enjoy their stay. Thanks for having your group stay with us!

Thank you for your superb hospitality KOA! We were greeted with warm welcome! We love the Christian background & message to spread the Word! Praise God! We loved everything KOA has to offer! From a comfortable cabin, atmosphere, & friendliness from staff! The cabin was very clean & everything we needed was there! So complete! Our kids want to make a Summer annual family trip there! God Bless KOA!

Wow, we are blushing.... thank you so much for your kind words. We love serving customers like you! God bless you!

The place was very welcoming upon arrival. Everything is neat and tidy. The staff is extremely helpful, and even took us over to our campsite. It is a beautiful campground. I would recommend this place to all of my friends! Thank you for a great experience!

Thanks a bunch for saying so! We feel like our mission is accomplished. Thanks for staying with us!

We were sold the last spot of the park for top $. The spot was right next to the propane tank, RV dump and playground! That should not be a spot! We hated it! And they didn't say anything about all the extra fees, really? Can't we just pay a flat rate!? We left after the first night, we weren't going to stay in that spot again! Found a spot way nicer for a third of the cost! Never Again!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Wow, sorry you didn't like it, that actually is a very popular campsite! KOA's standard policy is to include 2 people per campsite with an additional fee for extras.

Only compliant was the Wifi never worked
Aug 02, 2015
clean, quiet, but expensive and a bit out of the way from Lake Tahoe itself. We needed to rent a car in order to go to the Lake. Our next camp trip to Lake Tahoe will probably try to reserve at a camp area in closer proximity to the Lake.
Aug 01, 2015
the spaces were too small for our size - 30 foot 5th wheel. Great location,though.
Jul 31, 2015
its too much Money for a stay
Jul 31, 2015
People now a days don't know what real camping is and complain about facilities. Go camp in the woods where u have to dig a hole and go to the bathroom. This place was great! Bathrooms, showers, power, wifi, friendly staff. Will stay again!

Thanks, you are too kind... we appreciate your appreciation!

Thank you and God Bless each one of you. You all made our visit great! You are helpful and kind. Have a great rest this winter.

Very warm welcome on arrival, close to South Lake Tahoe. Sites very close together

When I made the reservation they were very nice and accommodating. However when I got there they were rude and very "unaccommodating". I was so close to the street it sounded like I was camping on the freeway. It was "very overpriced for what you get. $77.00 a night with a AAA discount. They advertise they have wi-if but they don't mention it's only free for 1 hour, then $8 a day. They also clai

We apologize you had a bad experience. Some of our sites are closer to Hwy 50 than others. We do have free Email Wi-Fi, and Prime Wi-Fi is available for $3 per day.
Jul 27, 2015
Nice clean property. The showers were unpredictable, while you are showering it will change from normal temperature to scalding hot th freezing cold than back to normal temp within minutes. Lake Tahoe souvenir shirts are reasonably priced!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thanks for your nice comment. Usually our customers say our showers are great, but on very busy weekends showers can be overburdened.
Jul 26, 2015
Awesome staff. Very friendly and helpful. The Camp sites are a little too close.
Jul 26, 2015
Great Stay... Love that the Lord is at the Center of Camp!
Jul 26, 2015
Beautiful campground. Staff is friendly and helpful. Everything is super clean and well kept. Great place to stay.
Jul 26, 2015
The people that work here are incredibly nice and very helpful. The store has everything you could possibly need. The location is second to none. The only thing that kept this from being a 10 and 5 stars was the weak WiFi. Believe me I know I'm nitpicking, but hey I paid If you are like me, a dad with limited camping experience and limited time, this place is a BLESSING!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thanks! We are a bit 'nitpicky' ourselves and really try hard to make our camper's experience the best it can be. Wish everyone could see the work that goes into installing Wifi in a forest; it's pretty in-tent-s!
Jul 25, 2015
The campground is right on The main hwy and the sites are small and almost on top of each other. 8 miles from Lake Tahoe. No trespassing to the river adjoining the campground. We stayed less than 20 hrs, found a site across the street from the lake for $22.00 a night and very large space. no hook ups but worth it. First KOA experience and not impressed
Jul 24, 2015
This was wonderful!!!
Jul 24, 2015
Directions are wrong. Called for close to 2 hours. Either no answer or busy. Employee stated: I do not answer the phone when someone in office. Sites are extremely unlevel. Had to sleep with head at the foot of the bed.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Finding a new place can be confusing! We answer our phone from 8am-8pm, and the phones can very busy.
Jul 23, 2015
Too expensive for being so close to the highway. Small sites.
Jul 22, 2015
The staff is friendly and great!
Jul 21, 2015
First of all I want to say that some of the reveiws folks put on here are absolutely ridiculous. Were there religious overtones, yes. Was it grossly overdone, no. The team here is super nice and helpful and their very accomodating. Noone drove aorund 'judging' us or told us we were camping wrong. Some of the RV sites are a tight fit so just to know your trailer length is the resolution there.
Jul 20, 2015
Friendly and welcoming staff, will never camp anywhere else in Tahoe except Lake Tahoe KOA.
Jul 20, 2015
We love koa lake tahoe! Its always so clean, especially the bathrooms! The kids always have a fun time!
Jul 20, 2015
Nice KOA and good people there.
Jul 20, 2015
Great spot with the best people! Staff were extremely friendly. The we all (adults and kids) complained that the pool's chemicals burned the eyes and skin when swimming even for a short time, . Overall it was great.

Workers of KOA Kampground South Lake Tahoe were rude and very demanding. While my wife was in the women's restroom breast pumping, worker with the injured arm propped open the restroom door and demanded that it stayed open. Complete invasion of privacy and that is not ok considering a restroom is supposed to be a place of complete privacy. Camp grounds are too close together.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Restroom cleaning hours are posted on the door of each restroom, and we try to stay to these times for the convenience of all our campers.
Jul 19, 2015
The KOA was great, but had to Find on highway 50. It is also a distance from Lake Tahoe. Not within walking distance of anything. The staff was the tops, extremely pleasemt & friendly.
Jul 18, 2015
The camp is great, the staff was friendly inside the building, there was one person working outside in the camp ground, ( I believe the live in RV helper) was rude. My dog accidentally got out I chased him down right away ( he is deaf so calling him don't work) the staff person then came over and gave me a 10 minute thrashing, did not appreciate that at all, then he stared me down all the time

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

It's up to our staff to reinforce our policy regarding dogs, which is for everyone's safety. Thanks for staying with us!
Jul 15, 2015
nice place, clean & friendly, but too expensive
Jul 14, 2015
We stayed four nights with a 5th wheel RV. Staff was great and helpful and our pull through site was great also. Only negative was the noise from adjacent tent camping sites. It got so bad the sheriff was called to quiet things down. Other than that everything was wonderful for us. We will return!
Jul 14, 2015
a little crowded but nice, clean, quiet park with very friendly staff. It did seem preferable to the other parks in the area
