Summer Recreation

The Lake Tahoe Basin Management Unit offers some of the finest summer recreational opportunities in the nation.  We recommend a stop at the Taylor Creek Visitor Center off of Emerald Bay Road (Highway 89).  Open daily in the summer, Taylor Creek is an excellent way to start your visit.  The Forest Supervisor's Office, located at 35 College Drive in South Lake Tahoe, provides a year-round source of information.  The front desk is open Monday through Friday from 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. For more information, please contact us.

From sightseeing to camping, numerous summer recreational opportunities are available at Lake Tahoe.  Hiking, mountain biking and a wide variety of beach and water sports are among the most popular activities.  Other opportunities include horseback riding, fishing, cycle touring and wildlife watching.
