The first new Lake Tahoe campground in more than 20 years was proposed last month, but not everyone is excited about it.

Located along the Tahoe Rim Trail, the 550-site Brockway Campground will devote 60 percent of sites to tent camping. The rest will be split between RVs and “eco-shelters,” which spokesperson Jessica Weaver [with developer Mountainside Partners] defines as “…a canvas tent on a platform, or a yurt, for basically those who prefer to sleep just above the ground.”
