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.

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!

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

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Lots of campers like our location 5 miles from town; they say it feels more like camping that way! We provide safe paths to Echo Creek, but some areas are too steep to walk down to it, therefore the signs.

This was wonderful!!!

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.

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
Jul 14, 2015
During our stay at KOA, we stayed for three nights. The first night was a Saturday night and the campground was completely full. By the last night we were the only tent left in the campground. We had a huge ant problem. Three different types of ants, and the biggest one was a monster size. These ants would attack our dog, and we ended up getting a campsite closer to the lake because of this.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Unfortunately, ants are unavoidable outdoors. Western Exterminator routinely visits our park to keep them away as much as possible, and the guys keep a bag of Spetracide Ant Shield Insect Killer granules on the golf cart for campers who report a problem. We love dogs, hope yours is okay!

Extremely expensive for a poor campground!
Jul 13, 2015
Wonderful hosts at this KOA! Chalet is quite nice, will try the new Chateau next. Only downside was the paid Premium WiFi, could not get into my corporate VPN.
Jul 13, 2015
Hosts were great and most helpful. Hesitation on recommending campsite would be how cramped and packed-in all the sites are. Fortunately we were switched to a site that was great but I think it was the best at the location.
Jul 13, 2015
I have stayed at the campground several times and was happy with the sites, however, this time the site was extremely small, in fact, the sewer outlet on the site next to us was less the 8 feet away and when it rained the outside area flooded and it rained every day. I went to management and mentioned the problem. His response was aggressive and loud and he did nothing. I won't be back

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Unfortunately, there was nothing we could do to change your circumstances during your stay. We recently had two very large pine trees removed from either side of your site and plan on widening it next year. We apologize for your inconvenience.

Stay was ok. Highway noise was close & loud. Religious references here & there were inappropriate in my opinion. Very expensive for an rv/campground. Some campsites were paved but ours was muddy sand as it was raining. It was clean & people were friendly.
Jul 10, 2015
The facility was very clean, well organized and the staff was extremely helpful. Will difently be returning. Thank you

Great location, awful religious overtones--from the religious fortune cookies on arrival to having only movies about Jesus for rent.
Jul 09, 2015
It was a Great stay away from all of the hustle and bustle of SLT. Really friendly and helpful staff. No complaints.
Jul 08, 2015
We had the best time and the sight we had was the most amazing sight I won't say the sight number as I am going to reserve it again...Church at the pool lets you really get to enjoy church service in Gods country where else can you go and be totally blessed each and everyday. Best place

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Praise God! Thanks so much for your review... we are very blessed to have campers like you! See you next time... and remember to call early for reservations if you are asking for a certain campsite 'cause we book up quick!

very nice people
Jul 07, 2015
Very nice forested park. Have a big rig and although tight fit between trees and boulders, the staff guided me right in. Best RV park in Tahoe!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We are so happy that you had a great time! Come see us again!
Jul 07, 2015
The cable tv did not work, the store people over charged for the wifi as it states on the pamflet free wifi that is false advertisement. No one could get onto the internet so i believe a refund is appropriate. Prices were doubled due to being a holiday weekend these people are thiefs as far as i am concerned

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Campsite prices increase $6 - $10/night on holidays/weekends. We have "Free WiFi for email and $3/day WiFi for streaming. Most customers have no problem w/cable, which is broadcast in Clear QAM. Some products may not have necessary internal components. We apologize for the inconvenience.
Jul 07, 2015
We had a great experience at the Lake Tahoe KOA. When we arrived Tom escorted us to our site and guided us in! The bathrooms were very clean. The general store selection was great. The location was just a few minutes from casinos and the lake shore. This was one of the best camping experiences we have ever had. All of the staff was so kind and friendly. You cant go wrong staying here.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you so much for taking the time to write such a nice review! We give our all to make every camper's experience great. Unfortunately, we don't always hear about the good stuff, so thanks again!

Friendly staff and clean bathroom !
Jul 06, 2015
Staff is very friendly, accommodating, helpful and courteous. Bathrooms are clean and updated.
Jul 06, 2015
The only concern, is the sewage connection for space #18 is higher than our RV connection was. I had to manually pickup the drain pipe and move the waste twice during our stay. Please have your maintenance crew lower the vertical sewage connection, so others will not have to experience this.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

RV connections vary in height and some campers use a hose support to eliminate that problem. We do have a sewer disposal station for your convenience.
Jul 06, 2015
Spaces were very small and situated strangely. Everyone was stacked on top of each other. The ladies in the office were not very friendly.I would never stay here again.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Our campground is cozy, and sites are on the smaller side because it was designed when tents and trailers were a lot smaller than they are now. Weekends are always crazy packed, especially in July and August. We apologize if we were not being friendly; when it's busy we can get overwhelmed.
Jul 05, 2015
Inadequate tiolet and shower capacity for full lower RV and camping areas. Also KOA should petition city to install highway guard rails along highway above camping area to protect from a vehicle accident dropping into camp sites underneath and ploughing along the camp sites killing many unprotected campers in path of such accident.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Customer safety is always our first concern. Cal Trans prohibits any type of barrier due to snow removal. Our website clearly states "Holidays are crowded" because it is true. Any other time, our facilities are adequate.
Jul 03, 2015
too close to the Hwy 50, very noisy. camp sites are very small and close to each other for the price u pay. and very dusty, but pool is nice, not big enough.
Jul 01, 2015
Le prix cher pour un emplacement tente.
Jun 30, 2015
clean and beautiful site
Jun 30, 2015
Very nice stay and very clean bathrooms. Hot showers were great. Only negative is that it gets quite dusty.
Jun 30, 2015
We stayed here in a 28' travel trailer with our 2 children and dog. The kids loved the "climbing rock," and we were happy with the distance to Tahoe. The campground is located approximately 12 minutes from the lake - close enough for a quick trip, but far enough for tranquility. The store staff was exceptional too - they provided us with a map and told us where the dog friendly beach was. 5 Stars!

We really appreciate your kind comment, it means a lot to us.
