RV Camping in Lake Tahoe
One word will never be enough to encompass the beauty Lake Tahoe holds, in my personal opinion. It’s breathtaking, heart-stopping, dazzling, and drool-worthy all in one.
The famous view of the sparkling sapphire lake that stretches out before you and the snowy mountain range that looms just below the skyline is an unforgettable sight you must take in at least once in your life.
During the summer, the highest temperature is 27°C, which is still relatively cold if you’re from a tropical country. But here in the States that 27°C is 80°F and that’s a great temperature. Not too hot. Not too cold.
Lake Tahoe is one of the best campgrounds you will ever experience after this pandemic. Here are seven RV campgrounds that will prove my point.
