Good call on the Fallen Leaf campground. Camp Richardson looked a bit close to the highway. I'm in Sonora, so Tahoe is about 3.5-4 hours north of me. The salmon run near me in a little town called Knights Ferry. Pretty cool to see. If you are into bluegrass music, Steve Martin and the Steep Canyon Rangers are also playing that weekend at the Montbleu Resort Casino. Yup, the actor Steve Martin. edit: We're going! Not sure about the bluegrass concert, but will be camping and drinking.
