I don't know how to review this because it was so much more than I had hoped for. The sites were amazing. If you are looking for seclusion however, this is not your spot. There are about 150 sites and in the summer, they all book out. The lake is phenomenal and is, In my opinion, better than Tahoe. Coyotes serenaded me to sleep.

5 stars. Great campsite overall. I've camped here for many years. Very close to many other venues. Most of the sites are really good. Especially the outer rim. Covid shutdowns affected the amenities but our experience this summer was still good.

Nice Campground
My wife and I just made our inaugural trip with our new trailer to Fallen Leaf Campground. Very nice and quite beautiful campground in the Sierra among tall pines. Nicely kept although showers closed due to COVID? No dump station but one right next door at Camp Richardson ($12). Except no one there to collect the money as kiosks apparently open only in afternoon. One nice thing about Fallen Leaf Campground is that every water station throughout the campground has hose bibs so you can fill your RV water tank right there without having to haul all.that extra weight from wherever you are coming from. Nice staff as well. Will definitely be back (especially nice that it is only about an hour from home!)

We enjoyed our 2 night stay. We had site #4A which is really 5, haha wish they would had told us, even the map said 5. It was a fantastic spot, pull thru no problem leveling our 30ft Class A. We were right across from the bathrooms which were kept very clean, and water if we needed to fill. Great bike path it takes you to the Ranger Station, to the Lake and beach, you can ride to Tallac Historic Site, the path goes on and on. Recommend highly. Just make SURE you take 89 our GPS took us down this road that was NOT meant for a motor home, but we survived. (Always an adventure)

Beautiful Campground
We booked this campground online. It’s beautiful. We had site #2. We stayed 4 nights and with the weather so cool we didn’t have any issues with not having hookups. There isn’t a dump station either but neighboring campgrounds allow campers to dump for a fee. The hosts are super nice. The sites are spaced well apart. We didn’t have any issues leveling our 32’ motorhome. There are showers but it’s $1 for 3 minutes. Pope Beach and a marina are right across the street which is perfect for visiting Lake Tahoe. There is abundant wildlife so keep the dogs on the leash. Loved this campground!

Great Campground Off The Beaten Path!
My wife and I camp here every year in October. Using my veterans discount the cost is about $15 per night. The sites are large, clean, and well situated around the park. There is ample space between the sites. It's an easy walk to finally flight which is beautiful at all times of the year. The campground is dog friendly, however you need to keep an eye on them to abundant wildlife. We really enjoyed this campground!
