It was not crowded. It was cold (60 degrees) and the Heavenly Gondola was closed for summer preparation. We drove around the whole lake and stopped for photo ops and eating lunch.

The water is very cold so be prepared if you're a water wimp like me. I prefer warm water so I did not kayak or try stand up paddle boarding but quite a few hardy souls were out there. The parks are well kept with nice amenities. There is something for the day tripper, camper, casual visitor or picnicker. This... More

I had a impression that the lake is small but when I saw it I can not define it as a lake. its such a big. Its well maintained. The water is crystal clear and you can see the depth of lake.Wow love it,enjoyed sunbath at the sands

Beauty abounds in every direction! This is a slice of heaven, If you haven't visited Tahoe you need to, and I would suggest taking the scenic loop around the entire lake it is worth every drop of gas!

This is a beautiful place. The paths are paved. lots of parking and simply serene and breathtaking scenery. We absolutely loved out visit. recommend bringing a bike or renting one from Shoreline rental company nearby on Kahle street. We wish we discovered this sooner during out stay as we would have visited more often.

We could not have asked for a nicer day, to sight see. The lake was like glass, the beach was deserted, and there was no wind. Took some nice pictures as we went around most of the entire lake. The vista points were very crowded, as it was MLK weekend. No snow, but my knee was not up to it... More

I highly recommend the boat rental. the price may be... More

Hello all! Mark Twain had it right when he described the incomparable views at Lake Tahoe and living in the valley in Carson City, we have many opportunities to visit. While I can't add much to all the wonderful things already said, I would strongly encourage all visitors to the eastern shore to make time to walk down to the... More

Sand Harbor on a hot summer day, there is no other place to be. The sand reminds you of a Hawaiian beach and so does the Sun. It's a busy place so you will want to go there during an earlier day in the week if you're going to go there after 11 am. otherwise you need to be there... More
