Fantastic campground, with very wooded sites. No "parking lot" camping here! Very friendly owners. We would camp here again in a heartbeat!

The highway noise drowns out most of the positives of this campground. The signage is hard to see. It was clean and well kept. Also the male clerk should be able to process checkin. I went twice to checkin and was told to come back when the host was there. The next morning get served by the "sheriff" at 8am; not funny.

Rest and recharge before crewing daughter's TRT FKT attempt. Perfect location, great host (Nancy) Only downside was traffic noise on hyw from Street Vibrations Motorcycle event.

Best Host ever, Gaylord and his wife made us have such a great KOA experience. Him guiding us how to park the RV was such a great thing. We will for sure return to this KOA.

People were friendl and campsite cleany. Did not like pull through. Too hard to get in and out. Could hear traffic all night. Went to use pool around 7:30 and was already closed. Liked church service.

My stay was just an overnight stay and I thought is what I expected and nothing more.

We love this place...the people there treat their guest with the most understanding and compassion. When you go into you space it is so clean and raked the fire pit is ready for your fire no trash from the last people, so clean and nice. But the best thing is being away from home and you wanting to hear the word just walk to the pool and you have it. Amazing praise God for this place

Goodness gracious, we're blushing... THANK YOU so much for your kind words. We really do try our hardest to make your stay with Lake Tahoe KOA the very best it can be.

Super location, easy drive to all South Lake amenities. Clean and quiet campground. Stayed here over Labor Day Weekend and campground was full, but the staff kept the facility clean and safe for all. The facility is set in amid the trees and rocks so it's a bit tight to maneuver trailers or rigs so I don't recommend arriving late at night. The pool was nice and warm.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

THANKS for sayin' so! We really do love what we do! That's an excellent recommendation, since we have LOTS of TREES it can be tricky parking, but isn't the forest beautiful to camp in? We think so too. :D

We had one of the best sites at this South Lake Tahoe KOA location. It would be nice if the surrounding area was open for hiking and exploring, but instead we were faced with "No Trespassing" signs. This KOA is right on Hwy 50 and cars and road noise is the main drawback. Great staff and service, well stocked store. Pool is small and was overfilled by two large groups during our stay.

Great park, friendly staff, great facilities and very clean!

Compared to many other KOAs we have visited, Lake Tahoe KOA is cramped for space and was very crowded over Labor Day week-end. But it is in a beautiful area with lots to do.

Man who worked there was fantastic and would give 10 stars, however, the older lady that seemed to run the place was not nice. Therefore, 1-2 stars.

Keeping up with the number of guests during holiday weekends can be a bit difficult. ... sometimes we get weary and our smiles lose their sparkle. Sorry!

great campground Wi-Fi and internet was bad

The hosts and personnel were very helpful and friendly.
Sep 04, 2015
Staff are very friendly and helpful. Like the campsites next to the stream.
Sep 01, 2015
People were great, friendly. The only drawback is that it is too far from the lake. Over all, nice campground.
Aug 31, 2015
Very nice park. Will be back soon.
Aug 31, 2015
Staff were extremely helpful .Thanks for your help

We booked a premium spot (18) along the creek. Our trailer was to large for the area. A pull-thru available at the entrance,next to the restrooms and just below the hwy. Could not get the TV cable to work with your system. Felt like we were camping at a gas station along a busy hwy

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Sorry for your inconvenience that you were not able to fit in site 18 and needed to move to a roadside pull through. Site 18 has accommodated up to a 30ft trailer. We did come to your site to test our cable, which was working, unfortunately it is not compatible with all systems.

VERY NICE FOLKS TO DEAL WITH. WELL LOCATED, VERY CLEAN AND A GREAT PLACE TO STAY. A LITTLE PRICEY BUT THATS WHAT YOU GET IN CA.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

It is GREAT to hear that you had a GREAT stay! Thanks!

Very nice people, poor cellphone service, good maintenance, could not get limited TV
Aug 25, 2015
Beautiful setting and very close to Lake Tahoe and activities. Owners and their entire staff were extremely friendly and very helpful! Wonderful campground!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thanks so much for saying so.... we really appreciate when folks take time to write the nice stuff. :)

Stayed on a Wed,Thurs. Park was virtually empty.That should have been our 1st clue. Sewer was uphill, no cable as ad.,wifi was a scam, highway noise was unbearable & the religious references from the jesus fortune cookies to the bible quotes on their brochures was unconscionable.Grossly overpriced. Rude crooks hiding behind religion. Never again!
Aug 24, 2015
The campground was fine but way overpriced for what you get.
Aug 24, 2015
The park was clean and pretty and the staff is very nice but the spots are very small with a lot of hwy noise and very expensive with extra charges for everything. It is 6 miles away from the lake.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thanks for commenting on the good stuff! RV's keep getting bigger and we don't want to cut down our trees, so it's a bit tight for some. Remember, the price and noise level both rise during peak season... try camping low season, it's so much nicer!

Very friendly staff, exceptionally clean bathrooms, nice level sites.
Aug 18, 2015
Owners were great, friendly and helpful. Campsites were dusty and lots uneven. Most sites were great for tent campers, but not so good for RVs.
Aug 18, 2015
We always have a great time at KOA Lake Tahoe. This year was a little more interesting, cause of the 2 bears that can through camp. Not damage other than some donuts and lunch meat. The weather was great and the hosts were so friendly

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

WoW! How cool you got to see a bear! Tahoe bears sure like to eat. :) Glad you had a memorable experience! See you next year!

Everything was great, the only negative is there is one employee that lessened the experience. She is likely in her later thirties to late forties. She is a little gruff and puts your business at risk of turning off patrons. One can tell that her edge is from feeling empowered, and the translation to us was rude and that we were a number that you can do without. She should be talked to!
Aug 17, 2015
Each phone conv with Kampground was courteous and friendly. When our campsite did not have the promised Cable hookup, someone used extension cable to get us set up for television. Greatly appreciated willingness to make us comfortable and happy.

Thanks, our mission was accomplished... HAPPY CAMPERS ROCK!

Not as close to Lake Tahoe as I would have liked; but the campground was lovely and had an outdoorsy feel!
Aug 12, 2015
Space was very tight for my motor home. No real area in front to use table provided. Sunday sermon was NOT appropriate and very disturbing.If you are going to have a Sunday service please ensure that it is not offensive to your campers. This is the 2nd time I have been to this KOA and I always get a bad spot. Don't think I will be going there again.
Aug 12, 2015
It is unclear to me why this KOA costs the double of other KOA's. The description of the RV places is wrong: all of them are on the highway, very noisy site. The pool is an oversized jacuzzi, does not qualify as a pool. Wifi is very poor and expensive. Friendly staff, but that does not compensate for the negative points. We staid 2 nights with a 32'RV in a pull through.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We wish stuff didn't cost so much either, and we do try our best to make everything the best it can be. Sorry you didn't enjoy yourself!
Aug 11, 2015
This is our second stay here. Everyone is WONDERFUL! We love the personalized feeling, the care that is taken to ensure you are in your site correctly, and the information available. Love this place. The campground is laid out well with a feeling of privacy. The creek side is awesome you can hear it at night. Will be back again!
Aug 11, 2015
Great time! Staff was very helpful!

Friendly, well-maintained campground. Very much enjoyed the church service Sunday morning.
