An Event Every Member of the Family will Enjoy on Lake Tahoe's South Shore

What makes Camp Richardson’s Oktoberfest in Lake Tahoe special? The wide variety of entertaining, family-friendly activities to choose from sets our celebration apart from the rest. Sip from a souvenir beer mug and sink your teeth into a freshly-cooked turkey leg or IPA beer-infused bratwurst created specifically for us. Thrill the kids with a trip to the face painting booth before heading to the bouncy house or bungee jump to burn off some energy. And in addition to a well-stocked beer and wine garden, an assortment of delicious German food and desserts, it's your chance to get up and dance to live music by the crowd-pleasing Gruber Family Band. Plus, it's free to attend!
