Camp Richardson

1900 Jameson Beach Rd., South Lake Tahoe, California, 96150, United States

An old-fashioned family resort that is built around a 1920s lodge, this property features a few dozen cabins and a small inn, all tucked beneath giant pine trees on 80 acres fronting Lake Tahoe. The rustic log cabin–style lodge has simple, straightforward accommodations. Some of the cabins (one-week minimum in summer) have fireplaces, or woodstoves, and full kitchens; a few units sleep eight. The Beachside Inn has more modern amenities and sits right on the lake, but its rooms feel like an ordinary motel. The resort sits well off the road, and there's tons of space; kids have a blast here. Rates drop significantly in winter, plus you can snowshoe and zip along cross-country ski trails on the property. The resort has a strict no-pets policy. This is an older property showing its age; if modern amenities matter, look elsewhere.
