TAHOE STATE PARK
Lake Tahoe State Park, situated on the undeveloped northeastern shore of Lake Tahoe, comprises more than 14,000 acres, including 12,000 acres of backcountry. The scenery and the variety of available activities make this park an outstanding place to visit.
Established in 1958, the park is located on Lake Tahoe's western shore. It spans over 23 acres of land. The area was initially inhabited by Washoe Indians before European settlers arrived.
In the late 19th century, it became a popular vacation spot due to its stunning natural beauty and recreational opportunities such as fishing and boating.
The state acquired this piece of land for public use in an effort to preserve its unique ecosystem and provide outdoor recreation facilities.
Over time, amenities like campgrounds were added making it more accessible for visitors who wanted extended stays amidst nature.
