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 lake shore lodge along the Water Trail.
Where to Stay
The Overnight Trip Map below works with our 7 Day Trip Maps so you can find campgrounds and lodges that are accessible from the lake and approximate the distances between them. Follow the links to make a reservation before you arrive, particularly for the June – August period. Consider scheduling your trip during September or early October; the weather is still warm and the lake and overnight accommodations are less crowded. Need more help? Contact one of our paddle outfitters or shops to Plan your Lodge to Lodge adventure! Always plan your overnight stay based on weather forecasts, have backup support (rides to drop off points and frequent check-ins for safety purposes), file a Float Plan with friends and/or family, and be safe.
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.
