Campground Description

Campground Description

Team

D.L. Bliss State Park encompasses one of Tahoe’s most beautiful stretches of shoreline. It is also home to one California’s premier campgrounds. Much of the park’s 165-site campground is within a half-mile walk to D.L. Bliss’ popular summer beaches, Rubicon Point and the Rubicon Trailhead.

Open between May and September only, this seasonal campground offers a diversity of sites, some much harder to reach than others. The 20 or so premier lakeside campsites at Beach Camp get booked well in advance, and they are slightly more expensive at $45/night. It’s best to plan early if you are hoping to secure a site near the lake. The remainder of the campsites are split among loops situated uphill from Beach Camp and set within the pine forest. The campground has restrooms with coin showers. Depending on drought and water conditions, water must sometimes be treated before drinking and cooking at D.L. Bliss State Park. Check with the ranger.

All campsites are within a mile of the family-friendly beaches of Lester Beach and Calawee Cove. Personal water-craft are popular here. Nearby hiking options include the Rubicon Trail, the Lighthouse Trail and Balancing Rock Trail.

Leashed dogs are permitted within the campground.
