town.south lake tahoe

This location has been evacuated due to the wildfire: CaldorFire 2021. This spectacular scenic lake offers some of the best views from the ridge lines. The ski slopes are the place to be in winter months & the lake is the spot for summertime fun. Backpacking, boating, fishing, horseback riding, snow mobiling and off roading are just a few of the outdoor recreational activities to be had. Camping & mountain biking are limitless in these parts. Use this alpine lake region responsibly: no littering, no polluting the water (oil, fuels, soaps, pesticides, snow blowing enhancer liquid). Please help Keep Tahoe Blue
