I'm going to be in South Lake Tahoe for a few weeks later this month and was wondering about free camping. I have a truck with a shell so I can stealth camp very easily.
I was thinking about just going to one of the casino parking lots. Anyone know some good spots?

You'd be fine if you go into any neighborhood and just be discreet. There are some forest roads off hwy 89 a ways south of town that are fine (and perhaps more legal). David A

I think you forgot the comma between dope and climbing! :)

Nearly every parking lot in town has the ubiquitous "No Overnight Parking" sign plastered about every 10 feet.

The Highway 89 idea is a decent one although I wouldn't park at any large trailheads.
