“Great views of emerald bay, easy drive up”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2013

We drove up to this vista point in the evening from South Lake Tahoe. It only took about 25 minutes, and the drive was lovely. The vista itself was fantastic, with various points from which you get a great view and fantastic pics. Kids enjoyed it too!

“The most beautiful views!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 18, 2013

We were told to stop here and almost skipped it due to not being to find a parking space. However, we were able to squeeze in and were so glad we did! The views of Lake Tahoe were spectacular! Could have stayed there all day.

“Awesome view of Emerald Bay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 17, 2013

This is an excellent viewpoint of Emerald Bay and going there is totally worth driving out of your way. When we were there, a food van was selling drinks and ice creams at surprisingly sensible prices. A highlight of our time at Lake Tahoe.

“Great views”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 23, 2013

Turn off on Rt 89 and that twisting winding road you are traveling. Spectaular views of Emerald Bay and the Lake.
