I have motorhome camped at Sugar Pine many times and have always had good experiences there. I've even snow camped there in tents in the dead of winter a few times, it's one of the few spots open all year long. Popular spot for Boy Scout winter camping. It's also a great place to bicycle & hike during the summer months. There is a loop out back created for one of the Olympic cross-country skiing events held at Squaw Valley.

This is the best of the state parks in the South Lake Tahoe area. It is located in the small town of Tahoma along the lake. It is just about at the center of the lake on the California side, so it's perfect as a launching spot for sightseeing. The sites are well spaced apart with plenty of trees and squirrels. The sites are paved and level. Bear boxes are provided at each site and are very roomy. We fit two coolers and a file box in it with no problem. NOTE: We did not see evidence of bear activity and we camped in a pop-up. There are no hook-ups, so bring your bottled water or plan to tote water from the spigot in the camping loop. The campground is divided into loops and is perfect for the kids to ride their bikes around and not worry about getting lost. There is also a bike trail that runs around the lake that you can start from the front of the campground. The bathrooms are cleaned daily and there is a bathroom at each loop. The showers are in a central location and are coin fed, but are very generous with the time. They are also individual stalls with locking doors and a separate dressing area. They also were very clean. We've checked out other parks in the area when we've camped in Lake Tahoe and even stayed at a "historic resort," which was a terrible experience we'll never repeat, and Sugar Pine is still our favorite.
