Tons of fun for the whole family, we are 2.3 miles away from the stateline on the California side. We are directly across route 50 from El Dorado Beach, a popular South Shore destination.

          Hi there! I was reading reviews and came across yours. My husband & I will be taking a long road trip and stopping in S. Lake Tahoe for a couple of day in May of next year. I am trying to book it online, however under "*Site" I have to selection A1 38' RV max.....etc. etc. We will be TENT camping while we are there. So how do I get past that, or is that all that there is RV camping and not tent? I'm confused. I tried to call the number listed but they are out of season and no one is available to answer and I don't want to miss the only days available to reserve. Can you help?
