Fun place e to sit and enjoy the beauty of the lake as well as hike, picnic, or enjoy lake sports like paddle boarding, boating, and parasailing. This is an exquisite place to get the privilege to visit and would really enjoy a return visit.

Whether it's swimming in the clean lake water, hiking to hidden lakes or waterfalls or riding bikes through the trees my trip to south Tahoe was great!! Recommend Applebee's for salads and atmosphere and Sand Harbor for swimming.

Well, no matter what the side events like parking or porta potties or any other thing people might complain about, the views of the lake are fabulous. The water is so clear and blue, the light glimmers so sweetly on the water. The smell of the air is intoxicating. The mountains on the other side of the lake are so... More

I received the Marlette Lake hike recommendation on Twitter via @TravelNevada and was not disappointed. It was a 12-mile roundtrip hike with a gradual 1,000-foot incline to Marlette Lake. First word of advice, park alongside the road near the boat inspection area so you don't have to pay the $10 entry fee into the park ($10 and there wasn't even... More

Lake Tahoe is so beautiful. We drove from Reno on our Harley and drove around the entire Lake and every part has something so breathtaking! We did love Incline Village area, the beach and the view was amazing. The mountains around it give it a very peaceful feel! A must do if you in the area.

Many of the spectacular views and recreation areas along Lake Tahoe's north shore have been recently organized together as Lake Tahoe - Nevada State Park. This includes Sand Harbor, Spooner Lake, and multiple other trailheads, scenic outlooks and such activities as a nude beach (at the bottom of a 1/2-mile-long steep trail). Worth spending a full day exploring. Caution: Extremely... More
