Camp at Fallen Leaf Lake

Rate this Adventure Lake Tahoe Fallen Leaf Lake Campground

Added by Jake Young

The beauty of this lake is second to none in California.

Fallen Leaf Lake is truly one of the more beautiful places in California. Separated from Lake Tahoe by just a one-mile strip of land, it feels worlds away from the crowds and fuss. The campground has over 200 sites that can be reserved here. There are endless hikes nearby including Mount Tallac and can these campsites can serve as a staging ground for backpacking trips into Desolation Wilderness.
