Located in the high desert, along the Eastern Sierra US Hwy 395 south of Lake Tahoe, California, Topaz is small lake positioned halfway inside of California and the other half in Nevada. This small state-line community is quiet & a decent gas stop, or an overnight stay. The California Agriculture Inspection Station is along this stretch of road too, so it is good to know what's inside your ice chest. A local casino, restaurant, chain hotel & gasoline, plus camping on the lake shore.
