*Due to the current state of the pandemic, we do not plan to offer bus transportation or airport shuttles to/from camp for 2021. This is subject to change depending on pandemic conditions, but please plan to be responsible for driving your camper to and from camp.


Transportation to and from camp must all be arranged online. To arrange bus or airport transportation, you can login to ‘My Account’ and under the Forms Dashboard, select ‘Forms and Documents’. There you will find a Transportation form that must be completed for every camper regardless of their preferred transportation method.

Car Transportation:

mountain-camp-transportation-carDrop off for campers on Sunday is between 2pm and 4pm. Pick up for campers on Saturday is between 9:30am and 11:30am. If using a GPS device and coming from the Bay Area, type in Ice House Lake and follow signs to Mountain Camp. If you’re driving to camp from the Tahoe area, there is a shortcut that you can use as long as the roads are clear – see below:

Directions from South Lake Tahoe:
Heading west on HWY 50 from South Lake Tahoe, you’ll turn right on Wrights Road. Follow that road for 6 miles, then take a left turn – road name is not posted, but there will be a sign for Ice House Reservoir pointing to that left turn. Follow road for 6 miles and Mountain Camp is on the left, although the sign is hard to see from that direction. If you come to a T intersection, you’ve gone just about a half block too far. Turn around and Mountain Camp entrance will be on your right.
