Awesome staff. Very friendly and helpful. The Camp sites are a little too close.

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!


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!

Nice KOA and good people there.

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.


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.

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.


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!

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.

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.

Le prix cher pour un emplacement tente.

Very nice stay and very clean bathrooms. Hot showers were great. Only negative is that it gets quite dusty.

We enjoyed our stay very much. We wished there was a little more privacy between the different sites. We know that space is limited so perhaps a few more bushes or trees in between the sites would make a difference. Overall, the KOA staff was very welcoming and helpful. We will be back.

Staff seemed nice upon check-in, then became rude throughout our stay. Came around to our campsite, as well as many others, and rudely told everyone what they were doing wrong. Not the type of atmosphere I want to be around. Doubt I will ever return to this place.


Our park rules/regulations are for the safety of our customers so everyone has an optimal experience.

Well-kept; busy (naturally since it is so well-located in Tahoe); very friendly service.
Jun 26, 2015
The campground was nice, the employees very friendly and helpful but very over priced for staying in a campground.
Jun 22, 2015
very poor camp ground, rude employee, to busy to answer a question, placed us by play ground when we had a dog,currently I am over charged by 65 dollars and would not recomend said camp ground to anyone seriously

Nice people and a very clean and well set up camp ground.

The KOA here was amazing! The management was kind and the sites were great

It was very nice accept we only stayed Saturday night,and I was disappointed that they held their church services at the swimming pool all morning on Sunday so no one could use the pool we paid for.Why didn,t they do their church befor 8, at 7? so people could use the pool on Sunday morning.


Sorry for your inconvenience. Our church service is from 8:30 AM to 9:30 AM Sunday morning. Everyone is welcome!

Clean, friendly staff, hot pool! Beautiful creek just near the sites. Sites are small but we have a big tent. We were lucky to find the site for us because campgrounds were not busy. Great location not far from South Tahoe Lake (5 miles). We will stay there next year!

Wow, staying at this campsite was a complete let down. My group and I felt completely unwanted and judged by the staff at this KOA. The free wifi is a lie and only works for an hour a day, unless you'd like to visit one of their Jesus websites those have no time limit. Warning: the maintenance guy driving the cart is very aggressive and creepy!!

Prices are high but so is the area. A lot of smoke currently from forest fires.
Sep 21, 2014
very friendly staff, clean restrooms and comfortable semi-private tent sites.
Sep 16, 2014
The camp sites are too close together. Your on top of each other. You can hear & see everything your neighbor is doing. Dogs barking in the middle of night. Not quite after 10pm. Will never go back. The worst Koa we've ever stayed at.

I enjoyed my stay @ KOA. The personnel were friendly and helpful. The grounds were clean and neat and the restrooms and showers were spotless. The only drawback is that they need a more prominent sign. It was easy to miss the campgrounds.

The staff was friendly and helpful.

We had a great time. Beautiful surroundings, kind staff, clean bathrooms. 4 stars only bc they did not have much to offer to kids activities. Their playground is tiny and their pool is small but at least heated! :)

Site too small and price too high!
Aug 18, 2014
The staff is super friendly, pool is nice and warm. Tent sites are very small and you're right next to each other didn't care for that. probably won't go back there because of that.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at KOA in Lake Tahoe! The staff could not have been kinder, or more helpful and caring! Our campsite was excellent, and the bathrooms were in spotless condition. We would HIGHLY recommend staying at this wonderful campground!

Rude. Uncomfortable. To each his own but there is nothing like having someone's beliefs shoved in your face. First thing I see is the Ten Commandments along with biblical quotes plaster all over the wall. You have to pay for internet access (only KOA) so far. My tent site was tiny. I had move the table to put up my tent and even then the site was too small. Yuck!!!!!

Hello, 1. campground conditions were very poor. The camp needs maintenance for examples: restrooms there are no air circulations. The shower head was too low for adults to use. 2. the site was crowded. when we arrived we got a location so small that our tent touched the grill stand of our neighbor. Which was really dangerous. 3. then they moved us to another bad location, parallel to the highw
Aug 09, 2014
Site was to accommodate two tents and was a sloping site. Showers were not clean. Very expensive for what I got.

We had a great stay! Good campsite, nice weather, lovely people. Thank you!

The location, and campground are beautiful and well kept. I didn't appreciate all of the "god" that was kind of thrown at us (notes on the receipts, fortune cookie with a scripture, jesus pics all over store area), but we got past that. I also think $50/night for a tent spot is way too high.

Convenient location, good facility, extremely helpful and friendly staff. Sites are not flat, and some are right next to the freeway.
Aug 03, 2014
We stayed here because it was the only place in the area with campsite reservations available when we planned our trip. The price is quite high for tent camping, but the facilities are clean and well-run.
Aug 03, 2014
Staff is great and we probably got the nicest tent site. But in general sites are too close together.
Aug 01, 2014
Tent sites R in low area & when rains that is where water ran. Even into tent tho had a ground cover & the mud! They were also most distance from restrms, on slippery uneven hills! There were grass sites as you entered why couldn't they have been used, they had picnic tables& grills. Also very expensive even w discount( most expensive had stayed in even when used Motorhome)
