So, Where is Sierra Camp? 

Stanford Sierra Camp is located on the southern shore of beautiful Fallen Leaf Lake, about a four-hour drive from Stanford. A small strip of land separates Fallen Leaf Lake from southwest Lake Tahoe. Desolation Wilderness, a 100-square-mile federally-protected wilderness area with spectacular granite peaks and over 100 lakes, sits just beyond Camp. It’s truly breathtaking.

It takes about 20 minutes to drive to the city of South Lake Tahoe, where you can find pretty much anything you need--grocery stores, drugstores, a variety of restaurants, and even a hospital. Drive for another 10 or 15 minutes down highway 50 and you'll cross the border into Stateline, Nevada, and be immediately surrounded by casinos, clubs, restaurants and stores. The nearest major airport is located in Reno, Nevada about a 2 hour drive from Camp.
