Looking for nice Campground Lake Tahoe

I am bit in late in my preparation for the summer vacation but now I am looking for a campground the closest possible to the beach around Lake Tahoe. I am obviously looking for the ideal place which is surrounded by trees, a nice beach and kids activities.

What I am trying to avoid is the parking lot type campground where the only thing I see is too much concrete/asphalt, big rv’s and generators.

Our class A is only 32 feet with no slides, has solar panels, enough battery power and 80 gallons of fresh water and we did dry camp with it for a few days, so dry camp is an option.

Thanks in advance

By the way our itinerary is:

· Montreal, QC
· Rapid City SD
· Yellowstone
· Teton
· Lake Tahoe
· San Diego
· Then back to Montreal

Looking for nice Campground Lake Tahoe

Fallen Leaf would be my #1 recommendation. Lovely, forested campground less than 1/2 mile to the shore.

12 paws, 40 feet and the open road

We stayed here a couple of years ago:
Tahoe Valley RV Resort | Encore RV Resort in California | Lake Tahoe

We had a nice time. It's a big park. We were lucky to get a site on the perimeter. Big pine trees.

There aren't a lot of RV parks to choose from around Lake Tahoe.

There could be a lot of valid criticisms of this park but we just relaxed and enjoyed our time at Lake Tahoe.

We went to South Lake Tahoe 10 years in a row skiing, and just loved the place. It's really nice to be familiar with all the hotels, casinos and restaurants. Too bad the land is too expensive for new RV parks.

I worked in Reno, Sacramento and Stockton a couple of times over the years, and visited Tahoe in the Spring and Fall--on clear days. It's an absolutely great place to spend the Summer too.

I also recommend Zephyr Cove on the east side of the lake. You can also ride the paddle wheeler, Tahoe Queen from there. Rent and kayak and paddle the lake yourself. Only about a half hour to the casinos at south shore is you have a mine to donate to the cause.
