The staff was very pleasent and helpful. I was very surprised by the warm and welcoming attitude by everyone I met.

We really loved our stay at your campground the people were really friendly and helpful. The only problem we found with our stay was that there was no hot water at the wash station, and a hot tub would have been nice, for the price.

We got there' after dark and we were registered and ready. The biggest problem I saw was once we were there we were packed in like sardines. We I opened the car door I could touch the next camp's tent and the camp on the other side was the same. In the bathroom stalls I couldn't hardly move and I am not a big person. We left as soon as we were awake the next day.

We love the place and definitely will return. The facility is clean and a great staffs. Our only complaint was the noise on the highway, but beside that a great stay.

having made it clear that i was a single party of 1, i was assigned a tent camping site directly next to a family of 5 instead of one of the 5+ other sites that would've been more private. additionally, it was not made clear that wifi was not free. moreover, this crowded KOA cost me $45 for one night tent camping ($15 more than average) and i was beaten over the head with jesus' love. coffee-$1

Definitely a wilderness feeling! Helpful staff. Would use this KOA again on another visit.

Pricey for strictly tent camping, but it's generally worth it: great location, friendly staff, and clean bathroom facilities.

Nice setting in the pine forest for non-hookup sites. Very friendly and helpful staff. Need to post more rules in brochure. Some folks in large site above used the slope into our site for a bathroom overnight. Noticed a couple of sites way too close to pool area and busy path to store and bath house. Non-hookup sites seemed a lot nicer.

Our tent site had very little level ground. The only place our tent fit was on a slope. The fire pit was about 2 feet deep and had rocks that forced you to sit 4-5 feet away from the fire. Once lit, it was so low and we were so far away that you could barely feel any heat from the fire. Considering the higher prices of KOA compared to other campgrounds in the area, I expected more

Great staff. Clean and quiet facility. Loved it all!

Nice staff but the worst KOA I have ever stayed at. Double the price of a gravel pit tent spot, no grass, double price on a bundle of undried wood, 3 dollars for spotty Internet which is always free at other KOAs and any private campground, motel or hotel. Shame on the people who run this place! Never again!

We are a family of three and this was our first camping trip. We had such a great time at the So Lake Tahoe KOA! The campground was clean, quiet and family friendly. The office had everything you might need if you happened to forget something at home. We purchased wood, used the pool, laundry facility and even their microwave to heat up some chili. :) Beautiful, convenient & friendly!

the staffs helpful from the front desk and the staffs on the field. the campsite close to each other ( not so much privacy ). bathroom clean. overall, love the place

The campground was extremely beautiful, but if I want someone's religion shoved down my throat in a public place, I'll go to church. Awful.
Jul 23, 2013
We called & booked at the last minute. Therefore, our site was not optimal which was along a loud, busy road. Otherwise, staff was friendly & very helpful. The campsite and facilities were clean. The showers had plenty of hot water. We all enjoyed our stay & would return again booking way in advance for better site. Thank you.

Loved the site with the stream nearby... it was just a very small space and not very secluded...
Jul 22, 2013
Staff was great but campground was more like camping in a crowded parking lot and very run down. Not my idea of camping in mountains. I don't think i will ever stay at another koa in my life of the worste camp grounds i have been to in terms of visual appearance and no space between sites.

Our stay with South Lake Tahoe KOA was outstanding. The campground was clean, employees were friendly, bathrooms were clean and showers were clean and had plenty of hot water. I have already recommended this campground to 2 friends. Great Job!!!

It was great to have the stream so close and still be able to get my Starbucks on Saturday morning. Loved the pool and the clean bathroom/showers and the people and the store had some great items. Also a BBQ saturday night and pancakes Sunday morning

I arrived at around 8 pm and left at 730 the next morning. Didn't see much of the campground but the staff was very helpful and polite. I enjoyed hearing the sound of the river from my tent.

This is a beautiful location & staff are friendly. But there were leaks in the ceiling in the bathroom with a bucket to catch the rain. The main entrance to get to office and bathroom was partially blocked by a maintenance vehicle so you had to walk through the heaviest downpour of rain from the roof to get around the vehicle and into the bathroom. Ended up climbing over the vehicle.

Sites are very close together and rates a little expensive. But very well run and we enjoyed our stay.

We stayed at this campground during Labor Day weekend. Got a site next to the creek which was especially great. Cooked our meals on the grill and sat around the fire pit, good times. This place is dog friendly which is an added bonus.

Clean bathroom and friendly staff except big boulders and big tree (a pine cone fell on top of my SUV had a big dent almost hit me on my head) on our campsite P4 no enough space for our tent and to move around especially if your a family of 5.

we had a great time! love the cleanliness!

The service was very friendly and helpful. The actual campsites were okay, very small and very little privacy.
Aug 20, 2012
This was our first-ever camping experience and this camp site made our stay so easy and wonderful! Only bummer was we were very close to Hwy 50 so we had a lot of traffic noise, but other than that it was a fantastic experience. We will be back for sure!

as always, the friendly folks at KOA made us feel like we were at a very familiar place (home away from home) even though, it was our first time at this property. Everyone was great and the scenery was gorgeous! Thanks from the Dragon family

The tent sites were nicely treed on a creek - probably the nicest spot on our 3 week road trip. The hosts were very friendly and helpful. Very clean bathrooms and showers. The only complaint that I have is other guests were given the site beside and overlooking our site, when there was no one else in the tent section. Even one space between us would allow more privacy. Otherwise, it was great!
Aug 04, 2012
The caretakers were very nice. The campsites are very small but the campsite itself is very clean and well-kept.
Aug 03, 2012
The workers there are extremely nice. We really enjoyed our stay. The only disappointment was that there was not a seperate room for the pool table. You would have to play pool in the middle of the store. My son was bummed that they didn't have a game room like another KOA we went to. Overall, we enjoyed ourselved and again, very nice employees.

I was displeased about the size of my camping spot. It was rediculoulsy tiny and almost didnt fit my family. I didnt appreciate being told by the custodian not to pick up broken branches or scraps of wood to burn. My guess is it was a ploy to sell 4 sticks for $8 in the store. There was also a LOUD party site that kept us up ALL night both nights. Family campgrounds? Not so sure....
