Camp on the Lake

Rate this Adventure Lake Tahoe Meeks Bay Campground

Added by The Outbound Collective

  • Easy access to the lake with all the amenities
  • Family friendly and a great staff
  • Meeks Bay trail head is a short walk away

The great thing about the campground is the close access to the beach/lake. It is only about a 2-3 minute walk, depending on which campsite you're walking from. The Meeks Bay trail head is also across the street and about 25 yards down the road. In general, it's a beautiful campground for families/large groups. The sites are sandy and pretty flat. Don't forget to check out the local farmers market (May-Oct, every Thursday, 8-1) for local fruit, veggies and everything else.

Swim at Long Lake near Truckee

Lake Tahoe / Palisade Creek Trail Parking

The story goes that twenty or so years ago, long before the advent of the Royal Gorge Cross-Country Ski Area, some local Truckee boys decided to put a couple rope swings up on Long Lake near Soda Spr.
