General Information

Description - Lake Tahoe State Recreation Area (SRA) lies on the northwestern shores of beautiful Lake Tahoe in Tahoe City. The park encompasses 55 acres with easy lake access and a variety of recreation opportunities.

Attractions - At this State Recreation Area visitors will find camping and picnicking facilities in addition to expansive lake views. Visitors have direct access to the lake shore as well as a pier and boating facilities.

Lakeside and Hillside campgrounds are the loops in this park. Hillside is across Highway 28 from Lakeside loop - and Lake Tahoe.

Recreation - Recreation opportunities at this shoreline park include camping, picnicking, fishing, swimming, boating and viewing the lake scenery.

Climate - The High Sierra generally experiences warm, dry summers and cold, wet, and snowy winters. Weather can change rapidly during all seasons of the year. Elevation plays a major role in temperature and precipitation. This precipitation falls mainly from October through April. At higher elevations, it comes mostly in the form of snow. A snowpack from 5-10 feet or more is usually present from December to May at elevations above 6,500 feet. Winter temperatures below zero and summer temperatures above 100 degrees indicate the normal seasonal spread. Clouds can build up during the summer to produce spectacular thunderstorm activity. It is wise to pack for any season with clothing that can be "layered", ready to peel off or add on as the thermometer dictates. Always include some kind of rain gear.

Location - Lake Tahoe SRA is located on California State Highway 28, near the east end of Tahoe City.
