What can I say about Camp Richardson? What a wonderful place! It was just unfortunate that we were only there for one night as we were on a road trip from Las Vegas to San Francisco.

Camp Richardson is made up of a hotel by the road, a lodge with motel style rooms, and individual cabins. We stayed in the lodge, which is situated right on the beach of Lake Tahoe – amazing!!!!
It was a large room with two Queen beds, a shower ensuite, tea and coffee facilities and a large TV.

We could park the car right outside the door. It was very quaint and comfortable. The Guest guide we found in the room not only had loads of tips about the surrounding area, but also had interesting articles about the history of the lake and the camp. Nice touch.

The resort is beautiful. You feel so off the beaten track. The views are incredible – snow peaked mountains and an endless lake greet you as you open the door. Also, peace and quiet! Sadly we were too early in the season to see any bears – that would have been the icing on the cake.

As part of our accommodation, we received a voucher for money off breakfast in their shop/café on site. The breakfast was superb. Hearty food with fresh ingredients in lovely surroundings. The staff were friendly, helpful and so enthusiastic. We arrived later than expected, but were greeted with warm smiles. There is wifi in the lobby of the main hotel which is like a large sitting room with sofas, TVs and a fireplace. I needed to print off a ticket from my emails and the staff at reception could not have been more helpful. I would recommend this place to anyone, and I will definitely come back – hopefully when the season is a little warmer so I can swim in that beautiful lake.

There was a bar/restaurant next to our lodge, but we were too tired to go in. If I was being really really picky, it would be nice to have wifi in the rooms and not just the lobby as I was a long way from home and Skyping my parents during the trip, which is quite a personal thing which I wouldn't have wanted to do in a public space. Other than that, perfect place!!!

The Lake Tahoe area is very quaint, with nice little shops and cafes, plus the most amazing scenery.

Room Tip: The lodge on the lake is wonderful.

We stayed in the Hudson cabin which is very basic for the two of us but was very comfortable. This is a historic property so the accommodations are not modern. The resort itself is beautiful and on Lake Tahoe. We were able to walk the property and enjoy being next to the lake. We had breakfast both mornings in the General Store and it was outstanding. This was not our first stay here. We have enjoyed several of the cabins and will definitely be back again soon.

The staff is very helpful and the food at the Beacon restaurant on property is very good. They also have their signature Rum Runner drink which is very tasty.

..... could not sleep for the whole time (two nights) we were there! The problem was the heating. The main building is fairly old and the heating is by hot water piped under the floor. This produced a continuous "ticking" sound due, I think, to the hot water pipes expanding/contracting while in contact with the timber. Up to 40 "ticks" per minute, from various points in the room. Some would consider this a form of torture!! Otherwise, the room was very clean, the double poster bed very comfortable, the staff VERY nice and friendly. The $5.00 breakfast coupons were enough to pay for a muffin and a small coffee at a nearby store. We did not use the $50.00 dinner coupon at their restaurant as it looked deserted when we looked in. Wouldn't want to come back in winter but the place looks like it could be very nice in summer due to location.

When you stay at Camp Richardson, you have to realize that it was built a long time ago and renovated. No TV's, the walls are thin, the rooms are small, you have to ask for an iron - it's just the way it is.

If you accept it on those terms, it's a very nice place to stay. Great proximity to trails and the lake. We were there for a wedding, so our experience may be a little atypical, but the staff was nice and helpful. The place is clean, and the rooms are well appointed. One minor detail I appreciated: they had conditioner, not just the typical shampoo-conditioner most hotels have (presumably to save money on stocking both).

There are a ton of camping sites and cabins nearby, so I imagine things get a little noisy in high season, no matter what part of the hotel you're in.

Room Tip: Room 209 has a king bed and is a little bigger than other rooms. It's a corner unit facing the road, but away from cabins, camp sites and the fire pit, so may be quieter in busy season.

I had the fish and chips. We both thought it was the best we've had. Very good tartar sauce. My husband had steak, which was good. The Rum Runner was good! If you like fish and chips, try it out! Casual place to eat with a nice view.
