Everything You Need to Know about Camp Richardson Marina in Tahoe

If you’re heading to Camp Richardson for Memorial Day weekend, here’s everything you need to know about the marina for your visit.


Camp Richardson Historic Resort and Marina is hands-down one of the best places to take your family in South Lake Tahoe. It’s great for camping, there’s live music on the beach at the Beacon restaurant five days a week, a bike rental shop, ice cream parlor and of course, the marina.
