RV Reviews

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

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.
Jul 23, 2015
Too expensive for being so close to the highway. Small sites.
Jul 22, 2015
The staff is friendly and great!

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.

Friendly and welcoming staff, will never camp anywhere else in Tahoe except Lake Tahoe KOA.
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.

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.

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

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!

a little crowded but nice, clean, quiet park with very friendly staff. It did seem preferable to the other parks in the area
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
Jul 13, 2015
Extremely expensive for a poor campground!

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
Jul 09, 2015
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

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!

We are so happy that you had a great time! Come see us again!

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.

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!
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.

clean and beautiful site

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.

Clean, well kept campground. Sunday services appreciated. Helpful and caring staff.
Jun 29, 2015
Not the site they told me was available! Then the people in the site next to us had 14 people and 4 cars and they parked so close to us and besides the four tents they were sleeping in the vehicle parked next to our trailer and kept hitting our trailer with treir truck door. I asked the staff for help with this but they did NOTHING! I will not be back!
Jun 28, 2015
Spaces are too close together. Bathrooms look like a battle zone, even after the cleaning time. Not supposed to clean dishes in bAthroom but sink area was created during ww2.
Jun 26, 2015
Clean and well stocked store. Awesome owner and staff.
Jun 24, 2015
While our stay was enjoyable, and the facilities were very clean, we felt that space and privacy were limited with our specific camp site (#16). Additionally, our site smelled of dog waste. We tried to cover the smell but were unable to eliminate it completely.
Jun 24, 2015
Overall it was very nice, clean and helpful staff. Cost was too high if you factor in the following. Disappointed that their is no cable after it says there is on the website. Sewer drain was "up hill" and we were unable to use. Had to use dump station on the way out. Would have been nice to pick our own spot. Don't go for peach and quiet...it sits right on Hwy 50.
Jun 24, 2015
Friendly and helpful staff
Jun 22, 2015
The staff are GREAT - Love the cookies. The site is close to everything you need - a little pricey but we will be back.
Jun 21, 2015
Seriously overpriced. Cramped & noisey next to busy highway. Very nice and helpful personnel kept this KOA from getting only one star. Will not be back.
Jun 21, 2015
In the trees, nice people, and small. Those are all good things but the constant road noise overshadowed all that. Our campsite was about 50 yds from the highway. If you have a small motor home and don't mind road noise I recommend it. If you pull a trailer I do not recommend it unless you are VERY competent at maneuvering your rig as the roads and corners are very narrow.
Jun 17, 2015
I believe we were deceived in the pricing. We were told one price and it was increased when we arrived. Our daughter was charged extra for children. VERY EXPENSIVE KOA
Jun 17, 2015
It was nice and quiet because we stayed during weekdays. It's several miles away from all the major attractions. Lots of trees and bboulders. It didn't feel like a parking lot. Bathroom facility is small. I think you have to pay for wifi.
Jun 15, 2015
Stayed two night, early June. The park had pretty trees and large boulders, but our pull thru sure was right on a busy highway and our view was a dumpster and the bathrooms. Bathrooms were clean but in need of refurbishment. Very friendly man helped us park. Our grandchildren enjoyed the pool which was clean and warm.
Jun 15, 2015
The campground was great the people were nice, But the fee KOA charges is I think getting to Expensive.Even with a discount I think in the future I will be looking for less expensive camping, thank you.
Jun 15, 2015
We enjoyed our stay at the KOA the people at the general store were so friendly and we appreciated their kindness 😀 they made us feel very welcome
Jun 14, 2015
great location, really great service setting up our cable tv, very friendly and welcoming people at the desk. You could use a bigger sign on the road opposite the campground.
Jun 12, 2015
The campgrounds are great and well layed out and maintened... but having just one shower/toilet combo for men and one for women for the amount of campers after office hours unbelievable. Please!!!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you for your nice comment! We have three toilets and showers in each restroom at the store. The upper restrooms also have three toilets each, with three co-ed showers. Our low season is so much nicer than July & August, please try camping off season!
Jun 09, 2015
Everyone at the Koa was great. The kids loved the pool, but wished it stayed open longer.
