My kids loved that we were next to the playground and it as clean and everyone was friendly.

Had an outstanding stay as usual. The campground was very full as one would expect for 4th of July weekend and the staff still did their best to complete any request we had. Special shout out to Gaylord for stopping by and helping us out this weekend. What a great staff!

Extremely clean property and friendly, helpful staff. Expensive, compared to other KOAs. Tent sites on road a bit noisy, but stream is calming. Convenient location: walk, drive to lakes, river, hiking, fishing (15 mins drive to Carson river, 5 mins to Saw Mill Pond for 14 yrs, under). Great burgers in town, bait and supplies at gas stations, KOA store well-stocked with food, gifts, supplies.

Friendly staff and a great location. I tent camped and had a stream behind my site that lulled me to sleep. My only gripe is that the "upgraded" WiFi did not work.

We booked last minute and really loved the KOA campsite in South Lake Tahoe. I will definitely stay here again and recommend it to friends. I was really impressed with how clean the bathroom facilities were! My only complaint is that we arrived late and there was another group in our campsite location. We ended up just moving to their location which was not as good but was not a huge problem.

Loved the barbecue on sat! Needed more brats but that's ok!! Only complaint was the fact that our site was on top of the biggest ant hill. there was no escape from them kinda made things not so easy to do while we were combatting hordes of ants... However the bathrooms were clean and we really enjoyed our stay.

The campground is clean. The store has a little bit of everything. But the 2 women that work in the store were so friendly and sweet. We really enjoyed their hospitality!!!

Beautifully laid out around the rocks and trees.

Way to expensive for any campground. There were many spots available around my, but when the next person came to camp they put them right next to me.

We got to the campground late and they had everything ready for us. Our check in was done online and they had a map of our site ready. They were very courteous and professional.

Lovely campground. Pitch for a tent was very stony and not flat which was tricky

The staff was very attentive and even on a busy weekend everything was very clean! Very impressed with our stay

Kids took a swim in the pool and got sick. The camp site was too tight. Too expensive for a ill maintained pool and small campsites.

Simply wonderful camp site. My family had a great time and we will be returning in the future.

Had a fantastic stay at the KOA Lake Tahoe. Even though it was very early in the season the campground was already open and they were busy clearing snow. Additionally, I booked online which was very easy and when I checked in they realized that I qualified for a discounted rate and applied it as store credit since the site was already paid for online. Very nice people, will stay there again.

Disappointed that large tent group moved into site next to our tent late at night (up to 2:00 a.m.) when there were at least 8 open sites in the area but not side by side. So unpleasant that we moved out of the site to a different campground after the first night even though we had paid for 2 nights.

We're glad we were there for card member appreciation weekend & got Saturday free, since we were not able to stay at the campground that night. There are no bear boxes there, and the bear came into our campsite and was not intimidated at all when we made lots of noise, banged pots, whistled,& honked the car horn. Campground did not offer to give us any sort of refund.

The staff was very welcoming helpful and the sites themselves were clean nice and confortable

Close to the lake,had clean showers and restrooms. Love the fortune cookies with bible verses in it. Wasn't fond of the hwy 50 traffic noise and the fine dust at the campsite, but would stay here again.

Coke machines don't function properly. I had to check in late and later I discovered that I was charged more than the posted rate. WAY OVERPRICED.


We have plenty of sodas in our well stocked store, we would have happily helped you inside. Our rates are posted; they can be confusing because different sites are different prices. We wish stuff didn't cost so much too!

The location was fabulous. The campsite was on a slope, our pitch was very near the mainroad so noisy at night, it was basically a dustbowl, and the wifi was dreadful. But the showers and bathrooms were clean and good and the bbq on Saturday night was great.

Pretty good place, highly recommended for tent camp 👍👍
Aug 17, 2015
It was VERY quite and clean. Good price. We'll be staying here again for sure.

It would be great to have food storage boxes nearby every tent site.
Aug 15, 2015
Very clean, nice showers & facilities. However the campsites were extremely small & difficult to get into. My site was supposed to fit 12 people. I barely got 2 - 4 man tents, 4 people & 2 vehicles into the site, with 4 -wheel drive trucks to back in & out of the site. To close to neighbors for any privacy at all.

Very clean, hot showers and quiet. The tent camping area is dusty, besides that, nice place

You all were so kind!

Very loud due to hwy right next to camp ground. The pool is heavily chlorinated making it unpleasant to swim. This is the first KOA we have stayed in where we are charged for wifi. The sites are small and packed in tight together. The male staff we interacted with were friendly, heard several complaints about rude female staff. Bathrooms were clean and had hot water.


Sorry you had an unpleasant experience. We do our best to make everyone's stay great.

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!


Glad you liked our showers and store! It's difficult to make everyone happy during July and August when so many people are out on vacation. Try camping off season, it's totally 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.


Thanks so much for your kind comments! When we get lots of snow, the creek noise covers the highway noise. Pray for rain!
