South Lake Tahoe

lodginglodging reservations in South Lake Tahoe

This spectacular scenic lake offers some of the best views from the ridge lines. The ski slopes are the place to be in winter months & the lake is the spot for summertime fun. Backpacking, boating, fishing, horseback riding, snow mobiling and off roading are just a few of the outdoor recreational activities to be had. Camping & mountain biking are limitless in these parts. Use this alpine lake region responsibly: no littering, no polluting the water (oil, fuels, soaps, pesticides, snow blowing enhancer liquid). Please help Keep Tahoe Blue
