Bayview Campground @ Tahoe

Post by alc101ma » Thu Jul 18, 2019 2:42 pm

Hi Everyone - I was doing some trip planning and it would be great if I could pull in to Bayview just to sleep before hitting the trails early the next morning. Since this is a walk in campground... any of you local guys have good insight into how likely it is to be full late (~10pm) on a Thursday or Friday night over the peak summer months?

Thanks in advance!

Bayview Campground with the TH to go to Cascade Falls or Granite Lk is "walkup" meaning no reservations?
It is pretty darn popular. Almost anytime I go to the TH, the campsites are taken, and even finding a spot to park for the TH can be a pain.
Especially during peak the peak of Summer on a Thurs/Fri night.
