Create an itinerary including Lake Tahoe
The long shoreline of Lake Tahoe offers a family-friendly resort atmosphere on its California side, and a vibrant nightlife of high-rise casinos on the Nevada side. One of the country’s deepest bodies of water (measuring 501 m [1,645 ft] at maximum depth), the lake is nestled in the Sierra Nevada Mountains and offers a range of activities throughout the warmer months of the year, including swimming, boating, kayaking, windsurfing, hiking, and camping. Winter brings lots of snow, transforming the mountain slopes surrounding the lake into popular ski and snowboarding destinations. You can start your day backpacking through the wilderness around the lake and end your evening with a meal and a show at a casino hotel in nearby Reno.

  • It's so beautiful 😍, we went on business trip. Rented nice boat for 17 people, it's simply amazing. Refer pictures for detail. Must visit Tahoe Lake if you are around that area.
  • Great lake and a great spot to have a picnic around the lake. Limited food and gas options so make sure you are stocked you before you enter the park. Could be cold at times.
