Overall Rating:

This campground is right next door to Meeks Bay Resort, which is a private campground reviewed elsewhere on this site. This is a typical older forest service campground which is situated right on the beach in Meeks Bay. It is a short walk across the day use parking lot to a beautiful white sand shallow beach. A small part of the beach is open to dogs. This location on the beach is about the only plus for an RV camper, but it is a BIG one. On the downside, there is only ONE site here rated for an over-20-foot RV, number 26, which says 40 feet. But our 31-foot fiver barely fit and there is a sharp turn on the road just before this site that was perhaps the tightest turn we've had to make in 3 years of RV camping. But we did make it with minimal scratching. The one large site also happens to be right next to highway 89, I mean RIGHT next to it, barely 20 feet away! Luckily, traffic was light at night and we were mostly gone during the day. But if you want a campsite to luxuriate in the quiet of the woods...this ain't it. Come here (if you fit) to enjoy the fabulous beach and the wonders of the Lake Tahoe area, but we likely will look to stay elsewhere next time. 10+ for the beach, 3 for the campground. We camped at Meeks Bay Campground (USFS) in a Fifth Wheel.
