The Kaspian Campground lies within a mature pine forest that overlooks the beautiful Lake Tahoe. As a camper, you will be snuggled into a sparse forest of trees and shrubs, only a few minutes from the bright blue water of the lake. You will find plenty of recreation opportunities at the land and its sandy beaches. This dog-friendly campground lies to the west of Lake Tahoe, 4.5 miles south of Tahoe City.
The campground is located in a previous picnic area. White fir and tall ponderosa pine trees surround the campsites that are adequately spaced for privacy. Some sites provide superb views of Lake Tahoe through the trees. The Kaspian day-use area on the lake’s shore is a short walk from the campsites. You can enjoy swimming, kayaking, paddleboarding, windsurfing, and fishing. A bike trail, paved and mostly level, goes through the campground and crisscrosses the lake’s west shore.
Having just 9 campsites, Kaspian Campgrounds is among the lesser known campgrounds around Lake Tahoe. All sites are single-family, walk-in, and you can only use tents here. Each site is equipped with a fire ring with grill and table. Most sites are well behind the lake. Drinking water, flush toilets, and trash collection are provided. You will find a small picnic area and beach adjacent to the campground. Whether you want to enjoy the water sports on the lake or just kick back on its sandy beaches, you and Fido will find the right balance of thrill and relaxation. The campground is perfect for those planning a whole day of biking around the lake.
Nearby attractions include the popular Meeks Bay, which is under 10 miles from Kaspian. Make sure Fido is on a leash and always attended. While not as famous as other campgrounds around the lake, Kaspian Campground makes for a pretty decent day of camping.
