Cave Rock State Park (a Nevada state park) is by the tunnel area one drives through on the East Side of the lake. There is a nice view of Lake Tahoe from the pay for fee park. One can launch their boat from this state park. There are breautiful views and we have stopped here often. Tonight, we stopped in... More

We launched our kayaks from here because, unlike other potential put ins, there's no problem bringing your dog with you, as long as it's on a leash. We were able to paddle North along the shoreline for 6 miles or so before turning back. We returned around 6pm, and were told by a local that they usually lock everything up... More

The trailhead to this attraction is across the main road from the Marina, at the end of a street in a housing development. Easy and short walk along the trail: a scramble, as others have noted, up the rock itself. The views are magnificent. Sad that this once-sacred site has dual tunnels punched through its base.

We stopped alongside Lake Tahoe for a picnic in the state park boat launch/ picnic area. There is also a small beach here. As we were looking up admiring Cave Rock we saw people hiking to the top of it. So we drove across the street and found a small 3-4 slot parking lot at the trailhead. There was a... More

Cave Rock is very easy to get to (up cave rock road and park near the trail). A 15 minute walk is rewarded by a great view and if you are daring enough to scramble up the rock itself, the view will take your breath away. I recommend this site to every friend and family member that is in the... More

nice trail up to the top, great sunset view - hard to find parking when it gets towards evening - there is an old office building near the entrance to Cave Rock Estates that you can park at and then walk up the road until you hit the trail just past the condo complex

It's a Tahoe landmark, but not much to explore. You see the whole thing from the road.

After driving through tunnel carved in the mountain, we stopped for lovely lake TAHOE views and picnic. There are bathrooms and boat ramp available. Cave rock was sacred to the Indians.
