William Kent Campground
William Kent Campground is situated on Lake Tahoe's west shore, 2 miles south of Tahoe City. Campsites are spread through a pine and fir forest with many sites having good privacy. Improvements in 2014 moved some sites away from the stream and increased the number of wheelchair accessible sites.
William Kent Campground has 76 campsites and 3 yurts. All the campsites can accommodate tents, RVs, or trailers. Some sites will accept large RVS or trailers. The campground is adjacent to residential cabins and some perimeter campsites back up to these homes.
Forest Service Note: "William Kent Campground will be undergoing campsite renovations in 2017. Please be aware, there may be noise during this time. Due to these renovations, some campsites will be available on a first-come, first-served basis (walk-up), and some will continue to be available for advanced reservation. Thank you for your patience as we work to improve this facility."
General Camping Information
Opening and closing dates of campgrounds are only estimates, usually dependent on snow conditions. Not all campsites can accommodate trailers or RVs of all lengths. Check carefully on the reservation website when you make your reservation to be sure your vehicle will fit your campsite.
In order to prevent the spread of invasive insects, firewood from outside the area is not permitted.
Designated Accessible sites are usually reserved for people with disabilities who have a vehicle displaying an accessible parking placard or license plate.
