Lake Tahoe, CA [Stop 19: Road Trip 2015]

We made it to California on Stop 19, YES! Stop 19 we entered Northern California, we left the deserts of Nevada and camped in National Forest Lands. It was amazing, so refreshing and peaceful.

We stayed at the Fallen Leaf Campground. Fallen Leaf Campground is situated on the north shore of Fallen Leaf Lake and adjacent to Taylor Creek. The south shore of Lake Tahoe is less than a mile away. The campground features 206 sites that include 6 yurts and standard tent and RV sites.

We had a pull-thru site (that was a little tricky due to the trees around the site) and paid $33.00 for that one night that we stayed there. It was an amazing campground. There were NO hookups, but since it was so well shaded and being in Northern California it was not so hot that needed the A/C anyway. A small fan that ran off our camper battery might have been nice, but we survived. We could have used our generator but we didn’t.

They told us when we checked in that bears were active in the campground/park but we never saw any… we really wanted to.

Here are some pictures of our campsite, I highly recommend the Fallen Leaf Campground if you are in the area. We loved it.

Like most of our stops we moved very fast thru Lake Tahoe. Everything in the area was beautiful and clean, we look forward to making it back some day.
