Welcome to the Lake Tahoe KOA!

Four miles from the south shore of beautiful Lake Tahoe, surrounded by tall pines with Echo Creek running through, this campground offers a relaxing stay with dozens of activities. Swim, boat or cruise the lake on the M.S. Dixie II paddle wheeler or the Tahoe Queen. Visit the casinos, 9 miles to the Nevada side of the lake. Go hot-air ballooning, horseback riding, hiking, biking and golfing. You also can enjoy kayaking, Jet Skiing or parasailing, and fishing in the Truckee River or other nearby lakes.

Our full hookup and tent sites are shaded by tall pine trees, and the deluxe accommodations include a Camping Lodge,  our unique Chalet.  We look forward to seeing you this summer.

Saxon Creek – THE Tahoe MTB Trail

Distance: Varies (9 miles downhill) Elevation Descent:  2,300 feetWords cannot give it justice. Pictures cannot visualize it. Try it if you dare. And remember, there's no shame to walk the “crazy stuff” because it's better to survive and ride again tomorrow then end up in injured & stuck indoors.


Borges Sleigh Rides

This family business has celebrated 50+ year of operation. It all began with a young man named Sam Borges and his dream to do the things in life that brought joy to not only himself and his family, but to bring joy to all those around him as well. Traveling back in time though a peaceful neighborhood while listening to the rhymic Clippity-Clop of the horse make the experience magical.  Be prepared for unexpected stops as our horses' fans offer carrots to these special Gentle Giants.  Views of the Lake Tahoe as well as the opportunity for picture taking and petting the horses. The horse drawn ride last from 45 - 50 minutes
