A guide to lake shore lodging and campgrounds along 7 mapped routes
One of the more exciting adventures is spending a few days and nights on an extended paddle trip either camping under the stars or staying at a lakeshore lodge along the Water Trail.
Where to Stay
The Overnight Trip Map below works with our 7 Day Trip Maps so you can plan out-and-back paddle adventures from designated lakefront campgrounds and lodging properties. Availability at a hotel is recommended since campgrounds require reservations six months out. Campfires and portable charcoal grills are not allowed on the beach. Consider scheduling your trip during September or early October; the weather is still warm and the lake and overnight accommodations are less crowded.
Before you launch at Tahoe, all watercraft and gear must be Cleaned, Drained and Dry to prevent Aquatic Invasive Species. Self inspecting and decontaminating your gear is easy and free. Learn how by becoming a Tahoe Keeper.
