Campgrounds on the Tahoe National Forest are managed by California Land Management (CLM) under the terms of a concession special use permit. CLM is currently seeking a modification to their permit terms. While their request is being considered, CLM has decided to make reservations unavailable to the public for campgrounds on the Tahoe NF. To make reservations for the 2014 camping season, please check www.recreation.gov or call the National Recreation Reservation System at 1-877-444-6777 after February 15, 2014.
Camping opportunities in a variety of settings are abundant on the Forest. Some choices include wilderness camping with no constructed facilities or camping in one of the 76 designated campgrounds with assorted facilities. There are 3 boat access only campgrounds at Bullards Bar Reservoir--3 developed campgrounds and 5 undeveloped areas that accomodate overnight equestrian use. There are 12 group campgrounds on the Forest, which require advance reservations.
