Lake Tahoe Nevada State Park is a popular vacation destination for many people. The location remains popular year round, in the summer for fishing, boating, and hiking, and in the winter for the best in skiing and winter sports. It doesn’t matter whether you come with family or friends, for summer or winter fun, or on a vacation or even to visit family. There is something for just about everyone to enjoy at this Lake Tahoe park.
There are many popular locations in and around the state park area. Sand Harbor is one of the most common place people visit, and it includes sandy beaches, a launching ramp for boats, picnicking facilities as well as facilities for group use. It is located about three miles to the south of Incline Village on State Route 28. Memorial Point and Hidden Beach are two other popular areas that are more secluded than Sand Harbor, and offer awe inspiring views of the lake.
Spooner Lake is another popular location for fishing, hiking, picnicking, mountain biking, and cross-country skiing. There are group facilities here as well and even rental cabins for an overnight stay. This destination has catch-and-keep fishing accessibility, which makes it more desirable than other areas of the park. There is a 5 trout limit, though, so as not to affect the fish population too drastically.
The area of Spooner Lake in Lake Tahoe Nevada State Park also serves as an access point to the back country between Lake Tahoe and Carson City. This area has miles of biking trails, skiing, hiking, and equestrian trails for those who want to go off the beaten path. There are also two very basic campsites for those who want to spend the night in the wilderness. There are no gasoline powered vehicles allowed in the back country, for obvious reasons. The more popular trails in this area are the Flume Trail and the Tahoe Rim Trail. Cave rock is another popular location in the park, which is known for boat launching and fishing, and is located along U.S. 50 near Zephyr Cove.
There is plenty to see and do at Lake Tahoe Nevada State Park, and it doesn’t matter when you visit. During the summer months, there are shows done by the Shakespeare Festival of Lake Tahoe at Sand Harbor, and during the winter months there are various celebratory events and plenty of winter fun for families and individuals from all walks of life. Visiting Lake Tahoe is sure to offer an interesting and exciting vacation for anyone who dares to give it a try.
