Camping Rules

Please note: Camp Richardson Resort has a strict no smoking in the buildings and no pet policy. Below is a video on some of the rules & regulations for camping in the Tahoe basin and at Camp Richardson Resort. Thank you

As with all wilderness areas, please be aware that Camp Richardson Resort & Marina has an abundance of wildlife: squirrels, ducks, raccoons and bears to name a few. Please, while you are visiting Camp Richardson, don't feed any animals. Never leave food out on a picnic table or in a tent. All food, coolers, and food containers should be stored in the bear boxes that are provided on each tent site. Garbage should be disposed of in animal-proof dumpsters. If these simple rules are followed, the wildlife in our area will not pose a threat to campers.

All on the south shore of one of the most beautiful alpine lakes in the world, Lake Tahoe, and just minutes from world-class ski/board resorts and casinos.
