Lake Tahoe Vintage Trailer Gathering

September 27, 2018 - September 30, 2018

Lake Tahoe Vintage Trailer Gathering, Thursday, September 27 through Sunday, September 30, 2018 at Fallen Leaf Lake, CA.

Fallen Leaf Campground, a lovely US Forest Service California campground, is situated on the north shore of Fallen Leaf Lake; the south shore of Lake Tahoe is less than a mile away. The campground features 200 standard tent and RV sites, just $35/night, or $17.50/night if you have a Federal Senior Pass (age 62-older). The gathering is open to both Tin Can Tourist members and non-members alike.

The RV and tent sites have paved parking aprons and each standard site has a bear-proof food storage locker, campfire ring, pedestal grill and picnic table. No power or water at these sites, this is upscale but dry camping. Coin-operated shower facilities, water spigots and accessible restrooms with flush toilets are scattered throughout the campground. A camp host is on-site, and firewood and supplies can be purchased from the camp store.

Nearby Attractions: The shore of beautiful Lake Tahoe is just a mile away, with bike path from the campground to the lake.  A century ago, what is now the nearby Tallac Historic Site held the ”Grandest Resort in the World” and summer retreats for three of San Francisco Bay Area’s socially-elite families. Today, the remains of the resort and the restored estates attract thousands of visitors annually to recapture this bygone and significant era. The bustling town of South Lake Tahoe, with all amenities and casinos/resorts, Is just 3 miles away.
