South Shore Campgrounds

Camp Richardson Resort and Marina
2 mi. Northwest of South Lake Tahoe on Hwy. 89
1900 Jameson Beach Road, South Lake Tahoe, CA 96150
Camp Richardson Resort is one of Lake Tahoe's year round retreats, located on the South Shore minutes from Heavenly Valley ski area and all the casinos, but far enough away to be quiet and peaceful. A variety of accommodations: lakefront cabins, condominiums, hotel rooms, tent and RV campsites. Sfgate.com celebrates that "During the winter months, visitors can rent snowshoes and cross-country skis and during the warmer months, the property's full-service marina offers rentals of boats, SeaDoo and Waverunner vehicles, kayaks, stand-up paddleboards and pedal boats. A number of great hikes start right from the grounds here, and the property's on-site Mountain Sports Center offers bike rentals if you want to hit the trails on two wheels."
