Hip, cool yet family friendly. Loved the beer garden, fire pits, s'mores and light fare that was offered. Enjoyed the live music. Casinos within walking distance. Lots of restaurant options within walking distance.

We stayed in Basecamp S.Lake Tahoe in early April 2017. The hotel itself is very nice and run well, although on one occasion our room wasn't cleaned and on 3/5 days there was no juice option at breakfast (nothing major but service could be improved). The outside areas, including hot tubs are clean and well maintained, and the staff were...

This July will be our 3rd year staying at Base Camp for the celebrity golf tournament at Edgewood. The location is great easy walk to the golf course, casinos and restaurants. The staff is very friendly and the rooms are comfortable. There was live music in the beer garden.

Really nice place with a funny theme. I loved the fire in the outside with the possibility to grill the marshmallows. Perfect breakfast offer by the hotel with fresh waffle that you can bake yourself. The Airco / heater is noisy in the room but as it is everywhere in the US (my impression).

The staff was awesome and the beer garden was fun but we thought the room was a little high for what you got. Stayed in the Great Outdoors, cool concept but I wouldn't go do it again. Everything else was fun.

Rooms were clean and nice for price. Close to everything. Beer garden was fun with live music daily. Grounds were clean, room was clean. I brought my son who is 18 and had never been in the snow. Great trip and choice staying at Basecamp.

Our stay overall was great for our first family vacation. We chose the location in part because dogs were not allowed. However on our second day there, there was a guest that did have 2 large dogs. my daughter is terrified of large dogs due to an attack on our own dog last year. The dogs were allowed in the...

Love this place. It has a young, hipster vibe. Lots of stuff to do on site and recommendations to do in the nearby area that young people like to do. It's a great location, plenty to walk to. Their beer garden and smores kits for the bonfires is adorable.

Excellent conditions they will be skiing through June. I'm blown away how much snow they have. So much to do, skiing, snowboarding, snowmobiling. Gondolas with spectacular views. Lots of fun places to hangout at at Stateline.
