North Lake Tahoe Camping


The north end of Lake Tahoe offers fewer camping choices compared to South Lake Tahoe, but good campsites can still be found. Reservations are practically mandatory in the summer.

William Kent and Kaspian campgrounds and the Tahoe State Recreation Area on the west shore of the lake are situated close to the water and provide typical campground amenities. Other campgrounds can be found north of Lake Tahoe along the Truckee River or to the east at Mount Rose.
