Coleville/Walker KOA Holiday Local Attractions

The perfect spot to use as your basecamp to explore places like Lake Tahoe, Virginia City, Bodie State Park, Mono Lake and Yosemite National Park.

Lake Tahoe

Lake Tahoe

Lake Tahoe is located along the border of California and Nevada and just over an hour from our campground. It is admired for its clarity, great depth and beautiful alpine surroundings. About two-thirds of the basin is in California while the other third is in Nevada. The lake was formed by geologic block faulting up to 3 million years ago. There are numerous sights to see from South Shore, around the west side of the lake up to Tahoe City and Incline Village then back south around the east shore.

After spending a day at the lake, relax and make your way through the South Lake Tahoe Beer Trail.  With 9 breweries on the trail that specialize in craft beer, everyone is sure to find something to quench their thirst.

Visit their website for a full list of ways to enjoy your day at Lake Tahoe!

Fishing the West Walker River

Fishing the West Walker River

The West Walker River is nearly 100 miles long and becomes more and more popular for fishing every year! The river is stocked during the summer months (and into fall) with rainbow and brown trout and, occasionally, we see native Lahontan cutthroat and mountain whitefish being caught.

The river is within walking distance of the campground and is a favorite spot for campers!

Bodie Ghost Town & Historic State Park

Bodie Ghost Town & Historic State Park

Come visit one of the most authentic mining towns in California. See the real-life setting of the California gold rush. This once was a bustling town with more than 10,000 residents and produced more than $35 million in gold and silver. This is a great experience for the entire family!

Just over an hour's drive from our campground, Bodie is a town preserved and frozen in time; It still has the appearance of the gold rush town it once was in 1861. Once only 20 miners, it grew to 10,000 in under 20 years. You can view the almost 100 buildings still standing, including the town bank, schoolhouse, barber shop, Methodist church, saloon and more.

Bodie State Historic Park is the perfect way for history buffs to spend an afternoon and view the 160-year-old gold rush town.
