Lake Tahoe Campers: The US Forest Service sent us this helpful and complimentary note with helpful campground contact info. for you...

I am writing to you from the Lake Tahoe Basin Management Unit Forest Service office. I learned about your web-site from a camper seeking information about camp sites in the Lake Tahoe Basin. I wanted to compliment you on your web-site. It is amazing! I was learning all kinds of things about Tahoe that I felt I should already know!!! (Good thing we never stop learning!)
