Our favorite campsite at Tahoe is D.L. Bliss just north of Emerald Bay. Trouble is, this seems to be everyone else's favorite as well. There is a lovely sandy beach and a hiking trail from the campground to Emerald Bay that has views that are not to be missed! There is a short nature hike to a natural wonder, Balancing Rock, a 250,000 pound boulder! See photos on this site Balancing Rock
. Not all the campsites are level and 20' is the maximum length of a camper RV or car plus trailer that is allowed. We barely made the length limit with our 13' Scamp
and sedan. We had our first experience backing
into and upwardly inclined camping spot. This was not an easy task but we had no choice because the campground was 100% booked the for the weekend after July 4th, 2012. We made the reservations in February! We recommend going to Bliss in the shoulder season.
